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!
Well, what do you think? Are you rooting for any of the singers - or the teams - on The Voice so far? Leave a comment and sound off below!
