The Blind Auditions were dragged out even further on Monday's episode of The Voice.
But there was one silver lining:
The first duo in years made it to the Blind Auditions, but how did the couple fare?
OneUp (Team Kelly) - “Could It Be I’m Falling in Love”
Adam and Jerome got close to each other while shooting a music video, and decided it was time to form a duo.
The issue, however, is that their vocals did not mesh well together. They would have been wiser to audition as solo acts.
Kelly probably only took them on because it was so different to have a duo in the game. If they can dial back the confidence, they might be able to adapt.
Natalie Brady (Team Adam) - “Barracuda”
This 33-year-old Nashville singer showed up on the stage and immediately made it her own. With solid vocals and a great stage presence, she could be one to watch.
The surprising thing was that she only got two chair turns, but she could be a success story with Adam's help.
Mike Parker (Team Jennifer) - “So Sick”
Mike was quick to point out that he lost all of his scholarships because his grades were not up to scratch.
He turned to a career in construction, but he could probably carve out a career in music. His audition was solid, and we're sure he will be a great addition to Team Jennifer.
Erika Zade (Team Kelly) - “New Rules”
Erika is the 20-year-old daughter of a rocker from Miami. She with Dua Lipa's hit single for her audition, and let's just say it was not what we expected.
She put her own unique spin on it, but was there anything beyond that audition that she could accomplish? We have no idea.
Jarred Matthew (Team Adam) - “Tired of Being Alone”
Jarred went with an Al Green classic, and his vocals hit astronomical heights. He had a lot of confidence, not as much as OneUp, and that's a good thing.
Out of all the performers Monday night, he is the most likely to make it further into the competition. He has the look of a superstar, so that's a positive.
It will all come down to whether his chances are ruined by horrid song choices.
Kayley Hill (Team Blake) - “Gold Dust Woman”
Anybody who can tackle a Fleetwood Mac number should automatically get a four-chair turn. There, we said it.
Kayley was another solid performance, but she was a casualty of the short auditions. Maybe the producers wanted to save her best for the Batlle Rounds.
Kirk Jay (Team Blake) - “God Bless the Broken Road”
This 22-year-old country singer turned in a striking performance that got the coveted four-chair turn.
He was confident and knew what was expected of him, and he set out to prove to everyone that he should be kept in the game.
In the end, he went to Team Blake, and that's a good thing.

The Voice continues Tuesday on NBC.
