The Voice Recap: Cupid Shuffles on Outta Here

by at . Comments

The Voice! Welcome back! It's been so long since we've seen you!

Amid reports that Usher and Shakira are set to replace Christina and Cee Lo next season, the NBC singing competition treated us to its fourth night of blind auditions Monday.

The fourth night of the last eight. Overkill? A little. But entertaining overkill.

There was plenty of talent on display last night, but perhaps the most noteworthy try-out came from a man who failed to turn around a single chair.

Cupid. The man who made the "Cupid Shuffle."

Cupid came on the show to prove to everyone he was more than just a YouTube smash ... only to sing the very song he feels so deeply pigeonholed by!!

The irony is that he didn't sound bad, but missed the chance to take advantage of The Voice's format and audition truly "blind." Not smart, Cupid.

Anyway, on to those who DID move on!

Team Cee Lo Green

The big fella had a big night, picking up JR Aquino, who is in the top 100 most popular artists on YouTube. Here's him doing "Just the Way You Are" ...

Nicholas David's take on "Stand By Me" was quite original. So original that only Cee Lo turned around for it, but it only takes one, are we wrong?

Lastly, he snagged Avery Wilson, who made everyone turn around with his version of "Without You," one of the best tryout songs of the season:

Team Blake Shelton

The country star added Kelly Crapa and Liz Davis to his squad on Monday, the latter a country girl who's as tailor made for his squad as you can get:

Team Adam Levine

Melanie Martinez's take on Britney Spears' "Toxic" more than deserved a spot on Adam's team, as did Brian Scartocci's rendition of "Isn't She Lovely."

Alessandra Guercio impressed the Maroon 5 frontman despite an imperfect take on "The Climb." Watch all three of those performances below ...

Team Christina Aguilera

Her big addition last night was Beat Frequency, a married couple. They had kind of a weird '80s look going for them but they sounded pretty great really.

Xtina also picked up Paulina, though we saw little of her.

What did you think of last night's show? Who's got the best team? Who were the best artists, and do any of them have what it takes to go all the way?
