Lack of performance by Shakira aside, night two of The Voice proved every bit as entertaining as the first as Season 4 looks like it could be as good as ever.

Like Monday's premiere, the show-stopper came at the end. Monday, it was Judith Hill. Tuesday, it was a 22-year-old student Sarah Simmons' "One of Us" ...

Sarah started with a soft tone, displaying her sensitive side, then grew edgier and before long, all four star coaches were clamoring for her stylings.

Adam Levine's begging won out for the second straight night ... but did he have similar luck with the hot model NBC selected to open up the episode?

Shakira, Usher, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton came together to perform "Come Together" on an emotional season premiere of The Voice Monday night.

The quartet kicked off the show with a group performance of the Beatles song, with Levine on drums, Adam on harmonica and Blake and Usher on guitars.

It was pretty awesome. Check it out if you missed it ...

While Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green will be missed, if there were any doubt that Shakira and Usher couldn't hold their own, you can forget about it.

Spurred on by Levine and Shelton - a venerable comedic duo by any measure - the new coaches turned on the charm and also let the competitive juices flow.

The Voice is back for a fourth season on NBC!

While the format remains the same, the people in the swiveling spaceship chairs do not. Christina and Cee Lo are out this spring. Usher and Shakira in.

Was that a good thing on night one of the blind auditions? Did you like the pregnant, hormonal Colombian and the serious, but competitive R&B star?

He's never not on the radio.

He's gotten a lot of ink. And girls.

He wears $120 pre-ripped t-shirts.

He's as outspoken as he is talented.

It's Adam Levine's birthday, everybody!

Adam Levine and Alicia Keys performed "Girl on Fire" Sunday at the Grammys, with the Maroon 5 frontman stepping in for Nicki Minaj on music's biggest night.

Decked out in slick black slacks and black shirt, Levine took the stage with his band to perform "Daylight" before Alicia Keys joined them and the duo.

Alicia killed it on the drums. After a verse of "Girl," they brought it back around with "Daylight," then ended things with some more "Fire." And it rocked:

Among the many other notable moments from last night's extravaganza ...

Lonely Island returned to SNL with a new song this weekend, featuring host Adam Levine and Kendrick Lamar along with Andy Samberg and the guys.

The title: "YOLO."

You only live once, it's true, but unlike Drake's rallying cry to go balls out, this is more of a cautionary anthem about truly getting the most out of life.

The motto of a generation, YOLO should be an overused catchphrase to live by ... not to die by. So start living your paranoid, risk-free existence to the fullest!

You Oughta Look Out ... for Lonely Island's new album in 2013!

In addition to crowning Cassadee Pope The Voice winner, NBC aired its first promo for the upcoming Season 4 last night, with Usher and Shakira co-starring in the funny ad.

Stepping in for Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, the two new coaches hitch a ride to the set alongside Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and one giant spaceship-chair.

The foursome immediately argues over what to play on the radio, until they arrive at a surprising consensus … and are nearly busted by host Carson Daly. Take a look ...

The Voice's three remaining singers - Cassadee Pope, Terry McDermott and Nicholas David - gave it their all Monday in hopes of winning it all Tuesday night.

With stars so talented, yet divergent in style, it's anyone's game.

The three stars' teams have no relevance, with the coaches unable to sway the outcome beyond whatever their praise after the performances is worth.

Who will America crown the winner of The Voice Season 3?

Will it be Cassadee Pope, the pop-rock-turned-country cutie who reprised her signature performance of "Over You" in addition to Faith Hill's "Cry"?

The Voice's top four singers gave it their all Monday night in hopes of making it to next week's finals. With a quartet of stars with such talent and divergent styles, it's anyone's game.

The singers' teams have no relevance - Christina and Adam don't have a team - but it was a good night for both Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green, whose proteges shone bright.

Who will America save, and who will go after four terrific, stripped down performances?

Cassadee Pope continued to look, act and sound the part of a pop star with Keith Urban's "Stupid Boy", while teammate Terry McDermott's "Let it Be" was close to perfection ...
