The Voice coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Alicia Keys and Kelly Clarkson continued selecting artists for their teams based on the initial auditions, which are winding down. If an artist lands a team, he or she will compete in the next "The Battle Round."

During a night of impressive and memorable performances, Livia and Hannah worked the coaches up into a frenzy.

Livia, a 17-year-old from Stanton, KY, sang "Dream a Little Dream of Me," and Kelly, Blake and Alicia all turned around.

Kelly said Livia is different from everyone else and her unique voice will set her apart from the rest of the competition. Kelly suggested Livia should sing contemporary songs with her classic twist on them, but Alicia said they should be singing the classics. Alicia also told Livia she should play her ukulele while performing.

Although Blake insisted it was a no-brainer for him to turn around for the artist and he'd love to work with her, Livia chose to join "Team Alicia."

But Kelly got Alicia back in choosing to block the coach's vote from winning over the soulful contestant, Hannah, a 20-year-old from Nashville TN, who sang "If I Ain't Got You."

Because of Hannah's song choice, the coaches knew without a doubt she'd choose to join Alicia's team, so although Alicia pressed her button for the artist, she was blocked.

That meant Hannah had to choose between Kelly, Adam, and Blake. Kelly thought she'd be a great coach for Hannah considering she's had longevity in her career. Kelly barely let the other coaches get a word in, yelling, "I can't hide passion y'all!"

Blake said he's fight for Hannah and "go down bleeding" to have her on his team, and then Adam said he really wanted to be a part of her career because he could tell her talent was undeniable. In the end, Hannah picked Kelly.

Another noteworthy performance belonged to Tish Haynes Keys, a 37-year-old from St. Louis MO, who belted out "Chain of Fools" by Aretha Franklin.

Both Adam and Kelly turned around, and Kelly called Tish's vocals "insane," adding that she was so excited during the performance that she was sweating. Adam admitted Blake was "stupid" for not turning around, and Kelly agreed, saying that no one is able to sing like Tish.

Kelly pointed out that Tish should join her on tour if she doesn't win The Voice, and then Adam gushed about how it would've been almost "disrespectful to the art of singing" if he hadn't pressed his button for her.

Adam wanted to try new things with Tish and explore things outside of her box, and because the artist wants to grow musically and professionally, she surprisingly picked Adam over Kelly.

Kelly also lost out on Stephanie Skipper, a 33-year-old from Nashville, TN. Kelly was touched by her performance of "Piece By Piece" and couldn't believe that she didn't turn around for the singer. After all, "Piece By Piece" is her own song, and it means the world to her.

But Stephanie could only choose between Blake and Adam, who turned their chairs around for her. Adam said she brought his attention to the song, where it belonged. And Blake applauded Stephanie for her passion and singing a song so personal to her.

Stephanie ultimately picked Adam because she believed he could help her embrace the feeling of songs rather than technicality.

Adam also landed Miya Bass, a 28-year-old from Jamaica Queens, NY, who sang "Issues," as well as Gary Edwards, a 26-year-old assistant choir director from Lewisville, TX, who sang "What's Going On."

Adam was the only person who turned around for Miya, but he had to fight Blake to have Gary on his team. Adam told Gary that his voice transcends all the problems in the world and made him feel like everything was going to be alright.

Blake, however, landed Bransen Ireland, a 27-year-old from Missouri who currently resides in Nashville, TN, as well as Jordan Kirkdorffer, a 28-year-old accountant from Indiana who currently lives in Nashville TN, for his team.

Bransen performed "Tulsa Time" by Don Williams, and both Blake and Adam turned around. Adam argued Bransen would have less competition in the country genre on his team, but Blake said if he joined "Team Adam," he wouldn't be motivated or pushed to become a better performer and vocalist.

And Jordan sang "In Case You Didn't Know," which also turned out to be a battle between Adam and Blake. Adam, however, pretty much expected to lose this country, pop and soul singer to his rival coach.

Two additional artists also joined The Voice cast last night.

Teana Boston, a 16-year-old from Stockton, CA, sang "Unfaithful" by Rihanna and sparked Kelly's attention.

"You're gorgeous and I'm going to win this show!" Kelly gushed, before Adam admitted she'll probably be "the one to watch" in the competition this season.

And Shana Halligan, a 44-year-old from Los Angeles, CA, performed a unique rendition of "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me own)." Alicia turned her chair around for the singer and said there was "unique individuality in her voice," like a mix of Florence Welch and Sia.

The Voice's Blind Auditions will come to a close during the upcoming Tuesday-night episode on NBC.
