After The Voice premiere captivated 11 million viewers last week, could the NBC series’ second episode keep up the momentum as the blind auditions continued?

Despite another confusing twist – because Cee-Lo was the only one to fill his team of eight, a group of initially rejected singers got a second shot – we’d say yes.

If anything, The Voice crammed too much into last night, but if the other option is to drag this proces out and give us 3-4 blind audition episodes, we’ll take it.

The rosters are now set as we head into the “battle” portion next week. Here’s a look at the four teams and some of the auditions that won spots on them:

Team Christina Aguilera

Backup vocalist Cherie Oakley earned a spot covering Miranda Lambert’s “Gunpowder and Lead” (Blake Shelton, Miranda’s fiancee, did not turn around). Watch:

Raquel Castro also charmed Xtina with this dramatic take on “Bleeding Love.” She’s 16. Amazing. Christina has made solid, predictable choices thus far …

Team Blake Shelton

Among the country star’s selections last night were single-named preacher’s daughter Serabee and rockabilly dad (and last week’s castoff) Jared Blake:

He also added gay Mormon Tyler Robinson after he got to the chorus of “Hey Soul Sister,” which honestly sounded a lot better than when Train sings it:

Finally, children’s author Dia Frampton was just “Bubbly” enough to nab Cee Lo as her coach, but she went with Blake in the end. Sorry, Mr. Green …

Team Adam Levine


Devon Barley, a teenager who’s somehow in medical school, sang Jason Mraz’s “I”m Yours” so smoothly that Cee-Lo and Adam both wanted him. Adam won:

Adam liked Tim Mahoney from the stars. Amazingly, he thought he was a she. The blind auditions officially worked with Tim’s “Bring It on Home to Me”  …

Team Cee-Lo Green

Emily Valentine sang Pink’s “Sober” without nailing every note, especially the high ones, but ended up on Team Cee-Lo after an awesome exchange with Adam:

Nakia is last name-less but certainly not hairless. In a risky move, he opted to sing Cee-Lo’s signature track during his audition, but guess what, it worked!
