  • Blake Shelton Wins!
  • Kelly Clarkson in Ireland

Kelly, Blake and Brandon go back a long way. Shelton says he had a huge hand in making sure Clarkson's fiance popped the question in a timely manner.

Voice Season 4 Coaches

Country sweetheart Savannah Berry, a 17-year-old from Houston, joined Team Blake in the final moments with Taylor Swift's aptly titled "Safe and Sound."

Adam Levine tried, as Adam Levine does, to steal Savannah away, but with Miranda Lambert as one of her musical influences, that was pretty much it.

"You're so good," Levine pleaded to Berry.

"You're so screwed," Shelton responded.

After a strong Season 4 premiere, The Voice ran it back for another two hours of blind auditions Monday night. Who got the coaches to turn around?

Let's get right down to business, shall we?

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.

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.

Despite what you may have read, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are not breaking up.

Okay, Life & Style admits in its latest issue, there was no Blake Shelton affair.

The Voice judge did not actually cheat on his superstar wife, as a previous cover story alleged via capital letters and misleading wording.

But Shelton did reportedly get kind of close to a 23-year old old artist named Cady Groves... and Lambert was none too pleased about the interaction!
