Matthew Schuler of The Voice set what is believed to be a record last night by getting every judge's chair to turn around before he even finished his first note.

Seriously. Right out of the gate, there was no more sought after singer on The Voice Season 5 premiere or on any blind audition episode since 2011.

Watch his performance below!

The 20-year-old college student took the stage to perform Young the Giant's "Cough Syrup," and made his mark within mere seconds of his a cappella opening.

A battle royale broke out between Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, with the newly-returned Xtina claiming the young talent.

It was a bold move to go with her, but Matthew Schuler has immediately made her a threat to take down back to back to back reigning champ coach Blake.

Think Matt made the right choice? And were his vocal stylings worth of the rapid-fire chair-turning that we saw on The Voice season premiere? Discuss!
