"The Voice" premiered Monday night for its first fall debut with the welcome return of familiar judges unlike its competitors "The-X Factor" and "American Idol," who have seen major switch ups on the judging panel.
The first to make Christina Aguilera's team was De'Borah, who had an unusual look but gave a seemingly topnotch rendition of "Hey Soul Sister." The second competitor was Devyn Deloera, who wooed Aguilera with a stroke of her ego and sang "Ain't No Other Man."Adam Levine managed to win over Keith Adam, the only contestant to turn over all four judges chairs with his rendition of "It Will Rain." Team Adam also took Joe Kirkland after a small battle with Blake Shelton.
As a victor of last season, Blake Shelton's team was created with high expectations. Shelton's first pick appeared to be a gamble when he took on Scottish rocker Terry McDermott. The singer chose "Baba O'Reiley" and gave a fair although not outstanding performance. Gracia Harrison was Shelton's second pick and perhaps second oddball, with her yodeling performance.
Daniel Rosa was won over to CeeLo Green after a bid by Shelton, with his rendition of "Somebody That I Used to Know." Rosa offered a very personalized version of the Gotye hit. His second pick, Trevin Hunte, was secured after vying between both Aguilera and Shelton.
Blind auditions for "The Voice" will continue on Tuesday and Wednesday with the team of judges battling out who will complete their teams. Watch full episode below.
