The Voice coaches officially completed their sixth-season teams and one artist's voice resulted in all four chairs turning around during Tuesday night's broadcast on NBC.
Kaleigh Glanton from Wichita, KS, took the stage with a rendition of "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" by Rod Stewart during the "blind auditions" phase of the competition.
"It was just different. The moments that were great were really, really great, and so I'm going to try to make all of those moments the consistent theme throughout all [future] performances of yours. Welcome to Team Adam!" Adam Levine told her.
"Excuse me, I love the sound of your voice. It's so quirky. I'm if quirky and you're a little quirky, we should quirk-up and I should be your coach! You'll succeed here on The Voice," Shakira explained.
"I may not be quirky, however, there's a very unique quality to your voice and also a gentle tone. In my opinion, it'd be great for you to come with me," Usher said.
"I'm so tired of hearing Adam tell people that they need all this work. You already have a style. I love your style. You just need a spotlight, and I'm the guy who can put a spotlight on you. Let's do it!" Blake Shelton argued.
"You're coming to my team so let's make this quick!" Adam joked.
"Not without my permission first," Shakira said.
"I don't need your permission!" Adam quipped.
Kaleigh ended up picking Blake as her coach.
In addition to Kaleigh, Brittnee Camelle from Lawrenceville, GA; Caleb Elder from Appomattox, VA; and Lindsay Bruce from Santa Rosa, CA, were also shown advancing to the next "battle rounds" phase of the competition during last night's episode of The Voice.
Brittnee picked "Team Usher," Caleb joined Adam's team, and Lindsay Bruce opted to be a member of "Team Shakira."
The Voice's sixth-season battle rounds will begin next Monday night.
Shakira will guide her team with the assistance of mentor Miranda Lambert, Blake's wife. Blake will work alongside The Band Perry when coaching his team. Adam's guest mentor will be Adam Blacc, and Usher will coach his team with the help of Jill Scott.
