Ryan Innes, the last performer of the evening, impressed all four judges with his take on John Mayer's "Gravity," earning a place on Team Ursher.

"You shook this room, man," Usher said of his "soul and true substance."

Soul singer Sasha Allen, a mother of two from New York City, has sung back-up for stars such as John Legend and Alicia Keys, and boy did it show.

All four singers vied for her services, but Adam Levine won out.

The Voice coaches added even more powerhouse talent to their rosters Tuesday in night four of the blind auditions. So who made the grade? Let's see ...

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?

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.

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 Season 3 just got underway, but is there already a casting shake-up in the works for Season 4? According to a new report, at least, there may well be:

Usher and Shakira are replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green.

Alleged insiders say Shakira and Usher would take the place of Christina and Cee Lo alongside Adam Levine and Blake Shelton at the end of the current season.

Earlier this month, Aguilera opened up to Ryan Seacrest about the show, admitting she once viewed her job as a coach on The Voice "kind of like a side project."

"[I thought], 'It'll keep me close to my son [Max, 4] in L.A. I don't have to travel," the Grammy winner said. "Then it kind of took off, and there goes my free time!"

The Voice sources say Christina will use her break from the program to focus on tours and promotional duties surrounding the release of her new album, Lotus.

Christina Aguilera's "Your Body", the first single from the upcoming record, is already out. Green, for his part, is currently working with NBC on a new show.

The rumor comes just as speculation surrounding American Idol's revolving door ends: Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban will join Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey as judges.

What do you think? Should Usher and Shakira join The Voice?
