The Voice is back for a fifth season on NBC! The format remains the same, and after a one-season hiatus, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo are back.

Was that a good thing on night one? Did you prefer Usher and Shakira or are you happy the original duo is back with Blake Shelton and Adam Levine?

More importantly, did the blind auditions live up to their billing?

Unlike ABC's Dancing With the Stars results show, there was no format change here. Just the tried and true magic that has made The Voice so great.

After the coaches came together to start the new season, they got down to business, bantering and competing for the talented singers who gave it their all.

Most notably ...

Matthew Schuler got all four coaches to turn around in like the first 15 milliseconds of his rendition of “Cough Syrup” and earned a spot on Team Christina.

“I’ve been pregnant, having twins, we’ve been separated, I’m drunk and alone, pregnant again, then we’re having twins again, and now we’re getting divorced!"

"I can’t even name the stuff," she said.

Kicking off The Voice results show last night was a tribute to Oklahoma tornado victims, as resident coach Blake Shelton hails from that very state.

He and wife Miranda Lambert live just 100 miles away from Moore, the city devastated by the massive Oklahoma tornado that killed at least 24 people.

The duo offered a subdued performance of their hit song "Over You" in tribute, while donation information for The Red Cross was presented on-screen.

Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton co-wrote the song in honor of Blake’s older brother who passed away when he was a teenager, so it was a fitting choice.

Watch their moving performance below:

Blake, Miranda and countless others invite you to help the Oklahoma tornado victims by donating at redcross.org or calling 1-800 HELP NOW.
