'The Voice' recap: two four-chair artists join one team - who's the lucky coach?

In the first night of Season 6 auditions on The Voice, Team Blake picked up 1 of 12 singers, Team Adam and Team Shakira landed 2 and Team Usher a leading 3. There are still plenty of spots to fill, though, so let's get to it.

We start off with another returning artist, Delvin Choice, who comes armed with Donny Hathaway's "A Song For You." That piece was pretty much killed by Jesse Campbell in Season 2, but Delvin nails it himself, earning three quick button pushes from Adam, Shakira and Blake. Usher waits until almost the last moment, but he's finally persuaded, too. Delvin is understandably floored to go from a failed audition to a four-chair turnaround.

Blake: I'm blown away - and you've got to tell me how you fix your hair.

After Adam does a very, very bad Spanish accent worthy of a horrible telenovela, the battle is on, complete with a couple of well-meaning jabs at each other.

Adam: Blake's never known any song that anyone sings on the show.

Adam wins another four-chair turn when Delvin selects him as his coach, and speculates that it would be cool if a second chance artist won. We'd have to agree with him there.
