"The Voice" season five continued Oct. 1 on NBC with a fourth night of blind auditions. By evening's end, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine had added three potential winners to his squad of hopefuls, including two whose tremendous vocal talents earned the notice of all four celebrity coaches.
Levine started off the two-hour episode on a high note by successfully snagging show opener Will Champlin. The Los Angeles native and new dad, who also happens to be the son of former Chicago band member Bill Champlin, impressed Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton with his soulful version of Gavin DeGraw's "Not Over You." After Champlin opted to join Team Adam, Levine predicted that voters would really like him, and said that his distinctive white-rimmed glasses and suspenders reminded him of season four runner-up Michelle Chamuel.
With Champlin already in his court, James Irwin became Levine's second add of the evening. Although the 31-year old performer's spring audition for "The Voice" failed to compel any of the coaches to turn their chairs around, he made a triumphant comeback with a stirring version of "Losing My Religion." All four coaches offered up flattering comments, but Irwin eventually chose to work with Levine, explaining that he considered himself "a rocker at heart."
Team Adam's final addition came in the form of show closer Ashley DuBose, a single mom and non-professional singer whose rendition of Rihanna's "Diamonds" left all four coaches asking her to join their teams. Although Christina Aguilera called her performance flawless and Green said he could envision himself sitting in the front row at the Grammy Awards rooting for her, DuBose chose Levine based on a simple gut feeling and their shared taste in music. For his part, Levine was "stoked" to work with DuBose, and predicted that she could "dethrone" three-time winner Shelton.
"The Voice" season five continues Oct. 7 with the last round of auditions.
