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?

Garret Gardner, who was turned away on the show last year at 16, put to work Shelton's constructive criticism on his cover of "Seven Nation Army."

He was snapped up by Shakira shortly after.

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.

The quartet kicked off the show with a group performance of the Beatles song, with Levine on drums, Adam on harmonica and Blake and Usher on guitars.

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

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.

Was that a good thing on night one of the blind auditions? Did you like the pregnant, hormonal Colombian and the serious, but competitive R&B star?

In addition to crowning Cassadee Pope The Voice winner, NBC aired its first promo for the upcoming Season 4 last night, with Usher and Shakira co-starring in the funny ad.

Stepping in for Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, the two new coaches hitch a ride to the set alongside Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and one giant spaceship-chair.

The foursome immediately argues over what to play on the radio, until they arrive at a surprising consensus … and are nearly busted by host Carson Daly. Take a look ...

The Voice's three remaining singers - Cassadee Pope, Terry McDermott and Nicholas David - gave it their all Monday in hopes of winning it all Tuesday night.

With stars so talented, yet divergent in style, it's anyone's game.

The three stars' teams have no relevance, with the coaches unable to sway the outcome beyond whatever their praise after the performances is worth.

Who will America crown the winner of The Voice Season 3?

Will it be Cassadee Pope, the pop-rock-turned-country cutie who reprised her signature performance of "Over You" in addition to Faith Hill's "Cry"?

The Voice's top four singers gave it their all Monday night in hopes of making it to next week's finals. With a quartet of stars with such talent and divergent styles, it's anyone's game.

The singers' teams have no relevance - Christina and Adam don't have a team - but it was a good night for both Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green, whose proteges shone bright.

Who will America save, and who will go after four terrific, stripped down performances?

Cassadee Pope continued to look, act and sound the part of a pop star with Keith Urban's "Stupid Boy", while teammate Terry McDermott's "Let it Be" was close to perfection ...

With the stakes high and little margin for error, The Voice's remaining six contenders gave it their all Monday in hopes of advancing to the NBC show's final four.

Even though the coaches' teams have little relevance anymore - Christina doesn't even have one left - it was a good night for Entertainer of the Year Blake Shelton.

Cassadee Pope continued to shine as one of the favorites, looking, acting and sounding the part of a star, while Terry McDermott may have had the best night of all.

Watch all the performances from last night here and give us your take:
