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.

Christina Aguilera spent a long time talking about being proud of her curves when she was rocking a fuller figure earlier this year, and for good reason.

Now that she's slimmed down, however, she's equally proud.

Christina Aguilera Loses Weight

Life & Style claims The Voice coach lost 49 (!?) pounds.

Dubious as that seems, she's clearly winning her long struggle with weight and the intense criticism that comes with it, thanks to - gasp - diet and exercise.

It's amazing what the stars come up with, isn't it?

Christina, while gorgeous, making the cover is a bit surprising in what was clearly a busy week for this particular tabloid. Among the other big stories:

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.

Christina Aguilera stopped by The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night to discuss her return to NBC's The Voice Season 5, kicking off next week.

Her own voice, while top-tier, was playing second fiddle Wednesday, though, thanks to a Bec & Bridge black dress she wore to the set. Just. Wow.

During her interview with Jay, the slimmed-down, five-time Grammy winner was asked to explain one of her quotes from the latest issue of Maxim.

In the magazine, Aguilera revealed that "the one place I don't need to be in control is in the bedroom." Gulp. Asked to elaborate, Christina explained:

"I'm a big micromanager. I'm a stickler about organization."

Christina Aguilera Quotes

It's kind of hilarious! I've never fit into an E-cup before. I look at my husband and go, 'Guess what size this bra is?' And when I tell him, he's just amazed. We keep the tags that prove it, to look back for memory's sake!
