Cole Vosbury took on a smooth, crooning, gem like "Adorn" by Miguel and still managed to pull it off as a white guy with a beard. Pretty terrific.

Matthew Schuler sang "Hallelujah," the real credit for which goes to Leonard Cohen for penning it, and Jeff Buckley for covering it. Still, he was solid.

Matthew Schuler wowed the audience with his "Wrecking Ball" cover on The Voice last night, cementing his status as one of the favorites to win Season 5.

Combined with Jacquie Lee, Matthew gives his coach, Christina Aguilera, two legitimate chances to claim her first title in the NBC show's history.

Watch his rendition of Miley Cyrus' hit song (seriously) and you'll see why:

Matthew Schuler already owns the title of fastest four-chair turn in five seasons of The Voice, so it's hardly a surprise that he's in the top 20 this fall.

His attention-grabbing vocals command the room whenever he performs. Simply put, he's the kind of talent that puts the rest of the field on notice.

With range and boundless potential, he may not have yet approached the limit of his ability. Bad news for anyone else looking to be named The Voice.

What do you think? Is Schuler worthy of all the hype? Or overrated? Share your comments below on the current season and who you think will reign.

And vote: Whose version of "Wrecking Ball" do you like better?

Jacquie Lee, the youngest performer on The Voice this season, may also be the best. She wowed viewers and coaches alike with her live debut last night.

The 16-year-old New Jersey high school student delivered an electrifying version of Nina Simone's "I Put a Spell on You," leaving her mentor near tears.

Christina Aguilera, who is not easily impressed, stood on chair at the end of Lee's amazing performance to applaud her young protege. Here's Jacquie:

The jaw-dropping performance also stunned Xtina's rival coach Cee Lo Green.

"Oh my God, Jacquie. Damn," he said once the roaring crowd quieted. "That was the absolute best. [It's] like the past and the present and you are most certainly the future."

Adam Levine agreed, quipping to the teenager, "You've done the unthinkable: You made Cee Lo a vicious competitor," he said. "You pissed him off, which is shocking."

What do you think? Does she have what it takes to win The Voice?
