While it may be good for ratings, not everyone is loving the chemistry between The Voice Season 6 judges.

Shakira's boyfriend Gerard Pique, for example, is reportedly not a fan of the "flirty" interactions between the singer and her co-host, Adam Levine.

“Adam is always touching Shakira,” a source close to the show told Star magazine.

"Gerard is livid."

Shakira's been dating pro soccer player Gerard since 2010. She's spoken before about Pique's "territorial" ways stating that she's no longer allowed to make music videos with men.

The Voice Season 6 Episode 2 featured five more blind auditions that landed the aspiring singers a spot on one of the superstars' teams Tuesday night.

Ending the night with a four-chair-turn was Cary Laine's awesome performance of "Better Dig Two" by The Band Perry ... but did Blake get the country girl?

Cary Laine: "Better Dig Two" (The Voice Audition)
Mom by day and bar singer by night, Cary Laine wows the coaches and the crowd with a powerful read on The Band Perry's "Better Dig Two."

He did not!

Adam Levine, as we saw in The Voice Season 6 premiere, will pull out all the stops when it comes to wooing new talent, and scored a big win here.

Which isn't to say we should hand him his third title just yet ... but he also landed Delvin Choice, whose "A Song For You" turned four chairs as well!

The Voice is back for Season 6, and Monday night's premiere featured the best audition EVER in the storied history of the popular NBC singing competition!

At least according to Adam Levine, who returns as coach alongside Blake Shelton. Both of whom have been in the swiveling spaceship chairs since day one.

Interim coaches Shakira and Usher are back in 2014, sitting in, literally, for the newly engaged and newly pregnant Christina Aguilera and just-retired Cee Lo Green.

But back to the Blind Auditions, and particularly Dawn & Hawkes ... the favorite opening effort Adam Levine has seen in six seasons! See them for yourself:

They were solid, deserving of a spot on the show and possibly having turned in the best of the night. But was Adam going overboard with such extreme praise?

Their song choice, "I've Just Seen a Face," didn't hurt, as the Maroon 5 singer is a devout Beatles buff. In any case, he wooed the duo to join his Season 6 roster.

Dawn & Hawkes weren't the only contestants who impressed last night, though. Seven other Blind Auditions earned spots in the next round. Let's take a look ...

The Voice is down to its final three singers, and all three made their case last night as they laid their hearts, souls and (yes) voices on the line for votes.

Tessanne Chin, Will Champlin and Jacquie Lee sang their blind audition song, a duet with their coach and finally a personal selection on Monday.

At stage? A Universal Music Group recording contract and The Voice title. How did they do? Did anyone outshine the others? Let's take a look ...

Tessanne Chin owned the stage with her duet of "Let It Be" with her coach Adam Levine, then nailed Whitney Houston's classic "I Have Nothing."

"I know in my mind and in my heart you are the winner of this show," Levine blurted out after the "world-class" rendition. Do you agree with him?

Will Champlin went from Team Adam to Christina, back to Adam. Coach Levine shared his "profound respect" for the extremely talented musician.

He performed "Tiny Dancer" alongside the Sexiest Man Alive, then knocked it out of the park with Bryan Adams' "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You."

Jacquie Lee doesn't quit. Week after week the Team Christina singer has put a smile on her coach's face, and did it yet again last night and then some.

To hold your own against/with one of the best of all time is no small feat, but Lee did it with Aguilera in a jaw-dropping performance of "We Remain."

The two powerhouses connected, and later she wowed the crowd solo with the final, awe-inspiring performance of the night with "And I'm Telling You."

With such an evenly matched final three, the votes could go either way. The Season Five winner will be crowned soon enough, and they will be deserving.

Who do you think should win The Voice?

Let's break down the final duels of the fall below ...

Olivia Henken vs. Stephanie Anne Johnson (Team Christina): “Done”

The Band Perry’s wordy track proved a challenge, but the two brought their best to this terrific battle, resulting in a split decision among the judges.

Green and Levine loved Johnson’s grit, while Shelton opted for Henken for powering the country song. Aguilera awarded Henken for her consistency.

Cee Lo them quickly swooped in and stole her rival.

The battle rounds continued on Season 5 of The Voice last night, and we were treated to some impressive clashes as the singers fought for survival.

Which aspiring star ended up heading home while others advanced to sing another week? And who was granted a last-second stay via the steal?

Let's break down all six battles from Monday night below!

Josh Logan vs. Michael Lynch (Team Christina): “Harder To Breathe” by Maroon 5

Somehow, neither of them really knew the words to Adam's hit and Christina had them a little nervous ... both in that dress and with her vocal talents.

She tried to get them both amped up, but when it came time for the battle, Michael was more so. However, it was Josh who showed superior vocal control.

WINNER: Josh

The Voice featured three more full head-to-head performances Tuesday in a condensed, hour-long version of Monday night's Battle Round premiere.

While none quite compared to the epic battle between Jacquie Lee and Briana Cuoco on Monday, some of the singers did a pretty decent job.

Who moved on? Who's headed home? Who was stolen? With just 12 more battles and four steals left to go, come along for The Voice recap!

Jacob Poole vs. Matthew Schuler (Team Christina), "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark"

Matthew was the clear favorite going in, and Jacob more than held his own, with the guys just giving it their all and turning in the night's top effort

But the favorite ended up triumphing in the end. "I just thank you for taking in everything I had to give," Coach Christina tells them, and picks Matthew.

The Voice can be an emotional rollercoaster. Half the singers picked up by a coach after the blind auditions can be dispatched immediately in the battles.

Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green pair the contestants up for sudden-death duets. One wins, one goes home. Boom.

Unless, that is, one of the other coaches presses the button to “steal” a singer cast off from other rosters. That great new twist proved vital last night.

Let's break down the first battle rounds of The Voice Season 5!

Briana Cuoco vs. Jacquie Lee: “House of the Rising Sun” (Team Christina)

The female rockers were assigned to put their stamp on this classic, and while Kaley Cuoco’s sister stood out at first, the high schooler took command.

Aguilera opted for Lee, at which point Green and Shelton immediately pushed their buttons to make the steal. Briana Cuoco joined Team Blake.

Night five of The Voice blind auditions showed us that with only eight spots left to fill before we move on, the competition was more intense than ever!

Who blew away Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton last night and earned their tickets to Season Five's Battle Rounds?

Let's take a look at the latest group of contenders ...

Adam Levine only had two spots on his team, and returning contestant Matt Cermanski, singing John Hiatt‘s ”Have a Little Faith in Me,” claimed the first.

“He was mine from the first note,” Adam said.

Wedding singer Grey (just one fame) who belted a powerful rendition of Kelly Clarkson’s “Catch My Breath,” got three coaches to turn, but picked Adam.

Night four of The Voice blind auditions proved that sometimes, the second time is the charm, while even a gifted talent doesn't guarantee a spot on NBC.

Who blew away Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton last night after failing to turn a single chair one season ago?

Who else landed spots with the fab four of The Voice? Here's a look at the singers who successfully gained entry into the next round last night ...

James Irwin didn't do much for the coaches last season. This time, with is performance of the R.E.M. classic “Losing My Religion,” it was a different story.

Returning with newfound confidence and much more stage presence, Irwin had his pick of coaches, but went with the only one to point out weaknesses: Adam.
