The Voice returned for Season 3 last night, premiering in the fall for the first time (perhaps to stir up unfriendly competition and level The X Factor).
For whatever reason, Blake Shelton's folksy, borderline inappropriate wise cracks are back, along with Cee Lo Green's eccentricities and cockatoos.
Christina Aguilera's booty is off the charts (in a good way), and Adam Levine continues to impress in his role as a judge, mentor and showman.
Oh yeah, the blind auditions were pretty cool too.
Team Christina Aguilera
The format is the same: With their backs turned to a singing hopeful, the judges turn around if they like what they see ... er, what they don't see.
If more than one turns around, then the candidate gets to choose his or her coach. Xtina got her first team member Monday night with De'Borah.
Her buzz cut and hot pink ensemble won't be a turn-off here folks, because they can't see! Not that her take on "Hey Soul Sister" wasn't well done.
Devyn Deloera also joined Xtina's roster, following a rousing rendition of "Ain't No Other Man" no less. Devyn is sure to be a favorite (among guys).
