Suffice it to say Blake Shelton and the Westboro Baptist Church don't see eye to eye, and the group's tactics don't exactly faze the country superstar.

Blake slammed Westboro recently for threatening to picket one of his shows. The other night, leaving Usher's birthday bash, he offered a similar take.

Asked about the hateful religious organization that has urged a boycott of his concerts, Shelton repeatedly said the so-called "Church" could "BLOW ME."

Seriously. Check out the direct quotes below:

Members of WBC have serious issues with the 37-year-old, because he supports gay rights and because of his relationship with Miranda Lambert.

Miranda is his second wife, who he allegedly had an affair with while he was still married to his first wife, so he's a major sinner all around in their eyes.

Doesn't seem concerned, though.

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.

The Voice is back for a second week of blind auditions, with Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine vying for the top talent.

There was no shortage of it last night, and with a show that seems to feature momentum changes and new fan favorites with each song, it’s anyone’s game.

Let's break down last night's blind audition contestants, shall we?

Preston Pohl, who  grew up performing in a Christian rock band until his mentor passed away, brought charisma and funk to MGMT’s “Electric Feel."

His originality and creativity really made the night, as the coaches swooned over him. Even Christina, who did not turn around, soon wished she had.

Adam begged and pleaded with the singer and ultimately his passion won out over the other two coaches / salesmen as Preston Pohl joined his team.

Blake Shelton did not hold back, or mince words, when he learned that the Westboro Baptist Church will be targeting his upcoming concert in K.C.

The group, known for vehement anti-gay protests, says the country star's marriage to Miranda Lambert, his second, makes him a "vulgar adulterer."

As such, they plan to protest on October 3, and The Voice coach hit back:

Blake Shelton Live

"Hey WBC.. I've got one more sin for ya... Blow me," Blake Tweeted.

The response came after the group accused him of leading his "4 million plus followers to hell w/you" and claiming his "sin" is to blame for gay marriage.

How being remarried to another woman relates to gay marriage - or frankly why the WBC does anything it does - remained unclear at press time.

After a typically strong premiere Monday, night two of The Voice proved almost, if not just as entertaining as the first as Season 5 looks terrific so far.

On the premiere, the show-stopper was Michael Schuler. On night two, it was Tessanne Chin, a woman who Adam boldly said should win The Voice.

Yes, on night one.

Tessanne, 28, had the judges going all-in from the get go.

The final performer of the evening, singing “Try” by Pink, had all four chairs turned around and facing her before she even made it to the song’s chorus.

Adam proclaimed, “You could easily win The Voice this season.” Whether that was just a sales pitch to snag her or not, we can't say, but it worked.

Will she live up to the hype in the coming weeks? Time will tell, but the Jamaican native certainly made a name for herself on the stage Tuesday night.

Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton kicked off The Voice Season 5 premiere with a rendition of "I Love Rock & Roll" last night.

The quartet, reunited after Xtina and Cee Lo took last season off, showed no signs of rust in belting out the rock anthem by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.

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

While Usher and Shakira were strong fill-ins, and will be missed in their own right, it was great to see Christina and Cee Lo back and raring to go.

Among the highlights of the fifth-season opener:

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.
