'The Voice' Season 5 Blind Auditions Part 2 Recap
First up, was 16-year-old Jaquie Lee, who sang the late Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black."
Only Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera turned their chairs for the young singer and Blake presented a pretty convincing argument, saying he specializes in helping 16-year-old girls win the show (he won with 16-year-old Danielle Bradbery last season).
Unfortunately, Blake's argument wasn't persuasive enough because Jaquie chose Christina as her coach.
Next, we were introduced to bow tie-wearing Barry Black who sang "What You Won't Do For Love."
Blake and Adam Levine turned around for the soulful singer and despite Blake saying he was "desperate" to get Barry on his team, he chose Adam anyway.
Mike Unser took the stage next, singing "Dirty Little Secret," but unfortunately none of the coaches turned around for him and he was sent home.
Fortunately, the next contestant Destinee Quinn had better luck with her audition as Christina and Cee Lo Green both turned during her rendition of "Cowboy Take Me Away."
We were surprised Blake didn't turn, but he admitted that he was also kind of bummed that he didn't.
In the end, Destinee chose Christina as her coach.
The next contestant was Cole Vosbury, who sang "Movin' On Up" with his own twist on the classic theme from The Jeffersons.
Cee Lo was the only coach who turned for Cole, so his decision was easy and he joined his team.
Next, we met Holly Henry, who earned the first four-chair turn of the evening with "The Scientist."
Blake, who was the first to push his button, was definitely the most enthusiastic about Holly and he won the four-chair turn, adding Holly to his team.
The next hopeful was 16-year-old Sammy C., who sang the Black Eyed Peas' hit "Where Is the Love?"
We were really rooting for Sammy, but sadly, he didn't receive any love from the coaches when it came to turning their chairs. They were, however very encouraging in their critique, with Blake even confessing that he really regretted not pushing his button. Hopefully we'll see Sammy back next season.
Next up, was Austin Jenckes, who sang "Simple Man," by Lynyrd Skynyrd, which his late father taught him to play on the guitar.
Both Cee Lo and Blake turned for Austin, but he seemed like such a good fit for team Blake, the choice was obvious.
Next up was E.G. Daily, who was once a voiceover actress for Rugrats.
Her incredible rendition of the Faith Hill song got Blake and Cee Lo to turn around, but in the end, she felt that Blake was more enthusiastic about her and went with him as her coach.
Jonny Gray was next, singing "All These Things That I've Done" by The Killers.
Despite the fact that Adam turned his chair for the veteran, who said that he listened to a lot of Maroon 5 songs while he was overseas, he chose team Cee Lo.
The last contestant of the evening was Jamaican-born Tessanne Chin, who earned the second four-chair turn of the night with her amazing cover of P!nk's "Try."
Cee Lo kind of killed his chances when he told Tessanne that she sang that song like a "grown woman" and she fired back "I am a grown woman!"
Adam, on the other hand, told her that she could win the competition and was so enthusiastic about her, it would have been almost impossible to say "no" to him. Whether it was the sales pitch or what she thought she could learn from him, Tessanne went with Adam, disappointing the other three coaches, but definitely making the Maroon 5 front man's night.
