The Voice's blind auditions have concluded, and the four celebrity coaches on NBC's hit singing competition have finalized their teams.
Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton each picked 12 singers. Although they'll cut that number by half next week as the contestants face off in battle rounds and mentoring sessions, here's how the teams are looking right now.
Christina Aguilera created a strong, diverse squad led by 24-year-old Sera Hill, who impressed Aguilera so much with her rendition of "I'm Going Down" that the pop star even joined Hill on stage to finish the song. Also on Xtina's team are 27-year-old folk rocker Lee Koch, gospel singer Anthony Evans, opera singer Chris Mann, R&B performer Jesse Campbell, 17-year-old pop singer Ashley De La Rosa; single-monikered R&B man Jonathas, Lindsay Pavao, Monique Benabou, erstwhile kickboxer Geoff McBride, emcee Moses Stone, and offbeat country twosome Haily Steele and Leland Grant (a.k.a. The Line).
Adam Levine won the much-sought-after voice of 25-year-old Whitney Myer, whom he compared to Mary J. Blige. The Maroon 5 singer also landed blues singer and piano player Orlando Napier, former Mouseketeer Tony Lucca, R&B singer Angel Taylor, Chris Cauley, guitar player Karla Davis, singer-songwriter Katrina Parker, soulful Kim Yarbrough, two more one-named singers in Pip and Mathal, alt-rocker Nathan Parrett, and piano player Nicolle Galyon.
Not to be outdone, Cee Lo Green was quick to grab the heavy rock duo The Shields Brothers after their performance of "Dancing with Myself." He was also landed YouTube sensation Angie Johnson, Hawaiian singer Cheesa, 18-year-old Wade, recovering drug addict Jamar Rogers, erstwhile model Erin Martin, classic rock singer Jamie Lono, smooth-voiced James Massone, Justin Hopkins, the folksy Sarah Golden, rocker Juliet Simms and Broadway alum Tony Vincent.
Last but not least, Blake Shelton picked a country-heavy group, including Lex Lad, Gwen Sebastian, Jordan Rager and RaeLynne. Also making the Team Blake cut were powerful vocalists Adley Stump and Erin Willett, indie pop singer Alyx, singer-songwriter Charlotte Sometimes, rock singer Jordin Unga, 15-year-old reggae performer Naia Kete, background vocalist Jermaine Paul and Brian Fuente.
