'The Voice' recap: Season 6 premiere brings lots of 4-chair turns

And we're back! After a quick three-month break, The Voice is looking for its sixth champion, beginning with a fresh round of blind auditions in front of Adam, Shakira, Usher and Blake. Here's what happened on premiere night.

Adam, Shakira, Usher and Blake are back for season 6 of NBC's 'The Voice,' premiering tonight at 8 PM ET/PT.

Of course, every season has to start with a coach performance, and we have to say Blake and Shakira make an even better pair than Blake and Christina did. They sing Shakira's "Whenever, Wherever" and Blake's "Boys Round Here" and improve both songs. Then Usher starts the whole group off on Maroon 5's "Love Somebody." That segues into Adam performing "Without You," which he needs to record immediately. This needs to have happened yesterday. And we close with pyrotechnics, because this show loves those.

Batting leadoff this season is 19-year-old YouTube star from New Jersey, Christina Grimmie. You know she's going to get button pushes, because her audition was leaked awhile ago. Christina sings Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" and immediately gets the attention of Shakira and Usher, followed closely by Adam. Blake seems like he's going to stay out of the fight, then changes his mind and makes it a four-chair affair. Time to see how the coaches have sharpened their negotiating skills.
