It's episode three of The Voice's blind auditions, with Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton back in their red-spinning seats to evaluate talent.

Actually, they've never left those seats. They're still in the same clothes. Busted! Seriously, this was one marathon audition day if it was chopped up into three episodes.

Anyway, who stood out last night and joined Teams Adam, Cee Lo, Blake and Xtina? Let's break down the performances of some of Monday's top Voice auditions ...

The 34-year-old insurance worker performed "What If God Was One Of Us" by Joan Osbourne. Adam was the only one to show interest. That's enough.

Team: Adam

Pip

The 19-year-old, baby faced Pip (that's his real name), takes pride in his fashion choices ... and his rendition of The Animals' "House of the Rising Sun."

The four coaches court Pip. Christina, quoting her own songs, actually tells Pip, "I am a fighter. And I will fight for your ass!" But alas, Levine wins out.

Team: Adam

The Voice came back strong in its Season 2 premiere after the Super Bowl and Monday's first two-hour installment of the season offered more of the same.

Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera are great. They take this seriously enough to make The Voice competitive but not so much that they forget to have fun, and the Blind Auditions are a hoot as a result.

From Cee Lo's glasses to Adam's prayer-like meditation while focusing on the audition, to Blake accusing the contestants of being "fooled by flash and boobs" (i.e. Christina earning some good prospects), the laughs were aplenty.

Each coach picked up two more talented team members Monday. Who was the best? Let's get down to business and see who was chosen by which judge/coach ...

Team Christina nabbed the first audition of the night in The Line, a country duo of Hailey and Leland from Nashville who chose Xtina over all three of the others.

Their version of "American Girl" was a four-chair turner:

Christina then scored Lindsey Pavao, who performed "Say Aah." Her unique tone impressed Christina, Cee Lo, and Blake, but Xtina beat them out again:

The Voice is back, and better than ever.

In the Season 2 premiere, the NBC singing competition showed why it became a big hit last spring - the chemistry of the four judges and the unexpected talent.

For those unfamiliar, the judges turn around, sight unseen, if they like someone trying out. That person then chooses which star he/she wants to coach them.

Let's get down to business and see who joined Team Christina Aguilera, Team Blake Shelton, Team Cee Lo Green and Team Adam Levine last night ...

Jesse Campbell and his surprising, tragic back story took second fiddle to his rendition of "A Song For You" that caused all four judges to turn around. 

After a funny, borderline racist comment from Cee Lo to Christina, he opted for Team Christina. Watch his performance and the fight for him here:

Later on, Christina also added Chris Mann, who's an opera singer! Who expected him to start singing in Italian on The Voice? Check it out below ...

RaeLynn was the first audition of the night, and was gunning for Team Blake from the start. After all, she sang Miranda Lambert's "Hell on Heels."

Christina Aguilera paid tribute to Etta James today at the iconic singer's funeral.

“She was the one that cut right through my soul. So tonight, Etta, this song is for you,” the 31-year-old artist said before belting out a version of "At Last."

Stevie Wonder also performed “Shelter in the Rain” with a church choir at the emotional event, while Rev. Al Sharpton delivered the eulogy for James, 73, who died last week at the due to complications from leukemia.

Christina Aguilera wants to make it abundantly clear: she thoroughly enjoys her body. Critics be damned!

A couple days after telling reporters that she loves her curves, excerpts from an interview the singer gave to Marie Claire have leaked online, in which she once again says:

“I’ve been through my highs, I’ve been through my lows; I’ve been through the gamut of all things in this business. Being too thin. Being bigger. I’ve been criticized for being on both sides of the scale. It’s noise I block out automatically. I love my body. My boyfriend loooves my body. My son is healthy and happy, so that’s all that matters to me.”

Speaking of little Max, Christina admits single parenthood can be a "struggle," but doesn't blame her ex, Jordan Bratman. She labels him a "devoted father" and adds:

"We always make sure that we put Max first. I have help from family and good people around me in support of my career. I couldn’t do what I do without a strong team behind me.”

Christina Aguilera has two words for critics of her body: eat it.

Granted, the singer put it a tad more delicately this weekend during a panel discussion at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. While promoting The Voice, Christina took time to address those who have called out her weight gain. (Hello, Kelly Osbourne!)

"Women, we are definitely under a microscope and under massive scrutiny," Aguilera told reporters. "As long as I am happy in my own skin, that is all that is all the confirmation I need."

It helps, too, that Aguilera is surrounded by positive people and support.

"I have a boyfriend that loves my body," she said of Matt Rutler. "I love my body, my son is healthy and happy and that is all that matters."

The Voice returns February 5 on NBC, right after the Super Bowl.

Already pulling out all the stops to market its sleeper hit singing competition, the network is filming extended commercials to air ... during its Super Bowl coverage.

That's one way to remind the audience what's on next.

Friday Night Lights creator Peter Berg recently filmed a spot featuring Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Cee Lo Green. Here's a pic from it:

Why watch The Voice when there are a billion other shows like it? One 60-second ad, titled “Vokal Kombat,” plays off an element of The Voice that’s truly unique.

The judges' swivel chairs, which turn to face a contestant during auditions when a judge hears a singer that deserves a shot, are the focal point of the new ads.

If more than one judge turns around to face the stage, they must compete against each other to win over the contestant, which can result in a battle royale.

The Voice will be competing directly against American Idol, which kicks off its 11th season January 22. Is there room for two? Will you watch either? Both?

They can do a lot more than merely judge a reality competition together.

At last night's American Music Awards, Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera anchored a rendition of their hit, "Moves Like Jagger," which had famous faces in the crowd up and dancing. Watch this duo belt out the track on stage now, as Jaden Smith, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift and others groove to it while watching from the audience:

Kelly Osbourne really does not like Christina Aguilera. She's come out hard against the singer's weight again, saying she was never as fat as Christina is now.

Just two months ago, the E! Fashion Police co-host blatantly called Aguilera a fat bitch and the c-word to boot. Osbourne has never been one to mince words.

When co-host George Kotsiopoulous defended Christina's get-up at the Michael Jackson tribute concert, saying she's "still probably a size 2/4," Kelly scoffed.

"Trust me," she sniped. "I'm a 2/4. That is not a 2/4. I was never that fat."

The Voice judge has been the source of criticism for pairing a tight-fitting black bodysuit with fishnets, heavy-handed makeup and massive hair at the show.

It's unclear exactly why Osbourne hates her so much, but this summer, she said, "She called me fat for f*cking years, so you know what? You're fat, too."

What do you think? Has Christina Aguilera put on weight recently, and does it matter? Does she look better now? Should Kelly Osbourne shut her yap?

Christina Aguilera sang some classic Jackson tunes before a capacity crowd at the Michael Forever tribute concert in Cardiff, Wales, on Saturday evening.

The 30-year-old singer was one of a handful of celebrities who paid tribute to the late Michael Jackson, including Cee Lo Green, Ne-Yo, and Leona Lewis.

A pregnant Beyonce performed via video, while Jennifer Hudson reportedly bailed at the last minute.  Fearne Cotton and Jamie Foxx hosted the event.
