We kick it off with Jacquie Lee (16; Colts Neck, NJ), who comes from a large Italian family. She's a born athlete, but what she really wants to do is sing. Tonight, she'll do just that with "Back to Black" by Amy Winehouse. Christina hits it at the end... and Blake joins her. He loves the competition. Adam's trying to sway Jacquie from Blake, while all Cee-Lo can talk about is her boots. Her boots were made to talk ... CHRISTINA'S way.

Barry Black (27; American Samoa) moved to the states at 5 for a better life. Today, he's trading the family hotel business for a guitar and a dream. He's now in a band in Vegas. Can he make it on his own with a fake flugelhorn and a cover of "What You Won't Do for Love" by Bobby Caldwell. Adam hits it right away, because he's curious. Blake turns around because he's a good artist. Blake says he'd love "Samoa" artists, but Barry would love to roll with ADAM.

Mike Unser (19; Pleasant Hill, OH) is into pop-punk, and he's hoping to use that to escape a troubled past, a broken home, and a new relationship with his stepfather. Now he's giving his time and his music to his church, playing music for a positive cause. He's going to give it his all on All American Rejects' "Dirty Little Secret". And it is apparently too dirty for the coaches, as no one takes a shot at him. Any consolation: Cee-Lo compares him to a young Willem Dafoe.

Destinee Quinn (20; Surprise, AZ) hopes to have a surprise of her own in her country stylings. She plays anywhere and everywhere.... including a biker bar. She credits a performance with Alice Cooper for setting her on the road to musical prowess. After a message from the master of mayhem himself, she gets on stage and performs the Dixie Chicks' "Cowboy Take Me Away". And the first to hit... is Christina! Second... Cee-Lo. Bad news, because the family was hoping for Blake. The important bit: she's in with a chance, but who will Destinee be destined to learn from? She picks... CHRISTINA!

Cole Vosbury (22; Shreveport, LA)'s dad tried to keep him out of music. That... didn't work. It was up to his grandmother, who toured with Elvis among others. Nita turned down Elvis, but will the coaches turn her grandson down? He's going to go with... "Movin' On Up (Theme from "The Jeffersons")". Yes, he actually went there. And Cee-Lo's in. And he's the only one in. So Cole is locked onto Cee-Lo. And it feels so good... because he looks like Chuck Mangione.

Blake has yet to add an artist tonight. What will we make of Holly Henry (19. Minneapolis), a waitress who plays guitar, ukulele, piano, and banjo? She's also not good at meeting people.. You'd call her antisocial. She calls herself "awkward". Let's see what the coaches call her after she sings "The Scientist" by Coldplay. One line into the song... and Blake's in. Looks like Blake thought he had it... then the other two guys had something to say. And Christina makes it a four-turn. But it turns into a star turn for BLAKE.

Next up, hip-hop artist Sammy C (16; Newport Beach, CA) is straight legit out of the OC. He was born with alopecia, which results in him having no hair. But it's all about what's in his heart and what's in his voice. Right now, he covers The Black Eyed Peas' "Where Is The Love" (fun fact: is a coach on the UK's version of this show). The love is not on the stage right now, that's for sure. He's getting rather desperate, and the coaches can hear that. No chair turn for you, Sammy.

Austin Jenckes (25; Duvall, WA) learned how to play the guitar from his father. He also learned how to be a scooter tour guide from him. Well, not that, but that's what he does. When he was 16, his father took his own life. He'll try to make his father's spirit proud with "Simple Man" by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Cee-Lo is buying in. So is Blake. Austin plays into Blake's wheelhouse. Austin picks... BLAKE! Everything's coming up Blake tonight.

Now if you're a fan of "Rugrats" and "The Powerpuff Girls"... and "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure", you might recognize our NEXT contestant, actress & VO performer EG Daily (51; Hollywood, CA). Nowadays, she has a few rugrats of her own. But she's going to try and see if she still has that musical shine of hers with her OWN voice on "Breathe" from Faith Hill. Blake and Cee-Lo hit it simultaneously. Forget the toons, YOU'RE the show now. And right now, she's going with... BLAKE! Two things I didn't see coming. 1) Tommy Pickles. 2) Blake Shelton.

Jonny Gray (29; Austin, TX) wants to be a musician on a grander scale. He gets his rock'n'roll chops from his uncle. He's a retired serviceman (USAF). Within six months of graduating high school, he became a combat veteran. Music always has been a solace to him, and he's used that to help give Austin a musical voice. His voice will give life to the Killers' "All These Things That I've Done". He's hoping that Adam will turn his chair for it... Cee-Lo hit his button.. but SO DOES ADAM! What will Jonny do now that he has to choose? He goes with... CEE-LO!

Last singer of the night is Tessanne Chin (28; Kingston, Jamaica). Her father is part Chinese & Cherokee. Her mother is part English & Black. She's got a lot of everything, including a big jones for rock music. She got a rare opportunity to sing with Sir Jimmy Cliff. Then she sang for her husband. How will she sing for America? She goes with "Try" by Pink. Christina's the first to hit, then Cee-Lo, then Adam. Blake? Is also in! Our last singer of the night and it's a four-turn! At the end of the day, she picks... ADAM!

And here is where we stand after night 2.
