The Voice coach Christina Aguilera's two team members Matthew Schuler and Jacquie Lee stole the night with their stellar performances, leaving her fellow coaches "sick" and "pissed" during Tuesday night's performance broadcast of the show's fifth season.
Schuler from Yardley, PA, took the stage with a rendition of Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball," knockingThe Voice coaches right out of their seats.
"Matt, you know, we're friends. But I hate you. I hate you so much. You make me so sick!" Cee Lo Green began. "You didn't pick me as your coach and I just hate how much I love you, dude, damn!"
"Yeah, I share Cee Lo's pain," Adam Levine added. "Three hearts just broke other than, of course, all the other hearts [in the world]. It makes me angry... I'm very upset with you because you're not on my team, but it lights a fire under me to make my team even better, because everything you exude, everything you were showing us on that stage is exactly what you need to take this thing all the way. So congratulations, man."
"This is the guy! This is the guy that you got to look out for," Blake Shelton told his team members, who were sitting in the audience right behind him for the show. "What am I going to say?! Just forget you, man. You're so good, so good."
"We don't like you!" Levine yelled out.
Aguilera then weighed-in on her team member's success with the hit song.
"They say they don't like you because they love you! This audience, they were so in your corner!" Aguilera explained. "You always bring such a charisma... You came in like a wrecking ball and you smashed it! America, if you see what I just saw, vote for this guy!"
Lee, a 16-year-old from Colts Neck, NJ, closed out the show by belting out "I Put a Spell on You" by Jay Hawkins. The crowd's cheering overpowered Green's comments at first, and Aguilera did nothing but hype them up even further as she stood on her feet.
"Oh my God, Jacquie, dang! I mean, wow! That was the absolute best. That was the absolute best. Count on me to be biased about my own team but that was the best. It was the past and present and you are most certainly the future," Green said.
"Jacquie, you've done the unthinkable. You made Cee Lo like a vicious competitor. He was telling everyone to shut up," Levine said, elaborating on how Green was upset Lee wasn't on his team.
"I've never seen him be competitive. Look, he's mad, he's angry! I've never seen -- he's like the sweetest, most peaceful zen master on earth. You pissed him off, which is shocking! It's shocking! That just means you were tremendous. He's very upset... I don't care how old you are. That's just crazy, just the emotion and how connected you were."
Aguilera had the last say on how her team member performed in the competition.

"You've grown so much and I am just honored to be your coach. I cannot wait to see your growth. I love you and I connect with you on such a special level of understanding. You're an old soul, and 16, are you kidding me?! America, vote for this girl!" Aguilera said.
Thursday night's The Voice broadcast will determine the competition's Top 12 artists -- three on each team -- based upon home viewer votes cast following the last couple nights of performance shows.
