The Voice's fifth-season blind auditions continued with the coaches picking 12 more acts for their teams during Monday night's show.
The acts who made it through to the next round were Ray Boudreaux from Lafayette, LA; Lina Gaudenzi from Miami, FL; Juhi from Franklin, TN; Justin Blake from Savannah, TN; Timyra-Joi from San Diego, CA; Monika Leigh from Houston, TX; Briana Cuoco from Thousand Oaks, CA; George Horga Jr. from Milwaukie, OR; Preston Pohl from Houston, TX; Anthony Paul from Twinsburg, OH; Cilla Chan from Singapore; and Jacob Poole from Atlanta, GA.
Boudreaux, Leigh and Chan joined coach Blake Shelton's team. Coach Christina Aguilera snagged Gaudenzi, Timyra-Joi, Cuoco, and Poole for her team. Coach Adam Levine turned his chair around and ultimately won Blake and Pohl. Juhi, Horga Jr. and Paul chose to work with Cee Lo Green as their coach.
The most impressive acts of the night were Timyra-Joi, Leigh and Pohl, who had the most chairs turn around for them during the night's broadcast.
The season's auditions thus far have left Levine, Shelton and Green with seven artists each, while Aguilera now has eight acts on her team.
In addition to Boudreaux, Leigh and Chan, Shelton's team is also comprised of Shelbie Z. from Jasper, AL; Holly Henry from Minneapolis, MN; Austin Jenckes from Seattle, WA; and E.G. Daily from Hollywood, CA.
Besides Blake and Poole, Levine's team is made up of Nic Hawk from Davenport, IA and Dallas, TX; Barry Black from Las Vegas, NV; Tessanne Chin from Kingston, Jamaica; Donna Allen from Tampa Bay and Hallandale, FL; and James Wolpert from Strasburg, PA.
Aguilera's team -- prior to Gaudenzi, Timyra-Joi, Cuoco, and Poole -- was comprised of Jacquie Lee from Colts Neck, NJ; Destinee Quinn from Surprise, AZ; Matthew Shuler from Yardley, PA; and Josh Logan from Manchester, NH.
Before Green won over Juhi, Horga Jr. and Paul, his team was comprised of Kat Robichaud from Raleigh, NC; Cole Vosbury from Shreveport, LA; Jonny Gray from Austin, TX; and Caroline Pennell from Saddle River, NJ.
Auditions will continue tonight with more hopeful acts taking the stage.
