Blake is spotted pre-show cradling his trophies for seasons 2... 3... AND 4... Have fun, stay humble.

Our first artist is Ray Boudreaux (25; Lafayette, LA), an old soul with a new life in his new daughter. She is his whole world. He hopes to go from mowing lawns the cutting the tracks with his voice. He will lead off the night with a guitar and a round of "Use Me" by Bill Withers. Blake is the first to hit his button, so he's in. But will someone follow him? That would be a yes, says Cee-Lo. Now it becomes a fight, the winner or the guy who says Bill Withers was a father to him. Ray goes with... BLAKE. And his family was cheering for Cee-Lo, too. They're gonna be bummed.

Next up, Lina Gaudenzi (23; Miami), whose mum did the very first Victoria's Secret catalog. Of course there are pictures. Of course we are not going to recreate them here. And of course, Lina's inherited her genes and her career choices. But what she really wants to do (after gaining 40 pounds, long story) is ... move to Paris and sing. She's done that, and now she's ready to sing stateside. What rhymes with that? "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac. Christina makes it a landslide win for her. Blake is not going to let her go that easily. But can a country boy get with a bluesy sound of someone who looks like a pop star?  Nope. She's going to CHRISTINA.

Next up, it's Juhi (16; Franklin, TN), who's going to be a senior and an honors student. Her father has a PhD in electrical engineering and a jones for rock. She gets her musical chops from her mom, who sings classical Indian music. She's hoping that she majors in aerospace engineering or computer science. Right now, though, it's all about her singing. She delivers "Mercy" by Duffy. No need to beg the two returnees. They're in. Juhi says she wants to be a cross between Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain. Dude, aren't both of them dead? CEE-LO.. isn't dead. He's got one tonight.

Malford Milligan (54; Austin, TX) was in the cotton fields working at 12, having been brought up poor. But the biggest struggles were physical. He's a black albino who is legally blind because of it. Growing up in the 60s, you can imagine it's hard. But in music he found his voice. He's toured with BB King, but now he wants a solo gig with Al Green's "Let's Stay Together".... It's less good than bad. No chair turns.

Justin Blake (20; Savannah, TN) knows the value of hard work. He is an escort driver for mobile homes. It doesn't pay well.... and it won't get easier, because now he's a father-to-be. This is an important opportunity for him to provide for the family he's not quite sure he's about to have. He says he's got a distinct sound to his voice... and he'll prove it with "Sure Be Cool If You Did" by... that's right... Blake. Adam hits it... only halfway out of spite. Blake.. doesn't. Interesting. So ADAM gets one scott-free.

Timyra-Joi (15; San Diego) is just jazzed to be here. She's been singing since before she could talk. We've heard this one before, but is it accurate in this case? Her father lost a job, and her vocal coach took them in until he could get back on his feet. Now it's Timyra-Joi's turn with "Girl on Fire" by Alicia Keys... and her age does NOT do her voice proper justice. Christina is an insta-hit. And she's about to get away with murder here, Christina... WAIT! HERE COMES CEE-LO AND BLAKE! But the first one hit is the first one to get the hit. CHRISTINA adds one.

Monika Leigh (28; Boulder, CO) spent her childhood gigging bars and hotels, but at 22, she gave it up for a 9 to 5 in a hotel as an administrative assistant. With "The Voice" in town, she thinks that it's time to give her dreams another go. She sings "The Thrill Is Gone" by BB King. Monika isn't. Cee-Lo and Adam hit. And Blake is taking a risk. He's going to give Monika three reasons why she should pick him. Season 2... Season 3... and Season 4. And how many records have Jermaine Paul, Cassadee Pope, and Danielle Bradbery sell again? How many will Monika sell in the end? We'll see. BLAKE is her coach.

Adam should've brought HIS trophy.

Zach Hinson (21; Yakima, WA) is a firefighter. So is his brother. So is his cousin (who died in the Thirty-Mile Fire). He thinks he could give up firefighting for music. We'll see as he goes into the arena with "Drunk On You" by Luke Bryan. You know where he's making his mistake? He's not playing the guitar he brought with him! That makes NO SENSE! And as a result, he turns no chairs. The coaches say it best: he took some risks and it didn't pan out.

Next on the Kia road trip is a trip to the San Fernando Valley to meet Briana Cuoco (24; Los Angeles), a personal assistant to her sister.... who's a TV actress... you may have seen her. Her name is Kaley, and she's on a little show called "The Big Bang Theory". Kaley is a big fan of this show AND of Bri's ability. Let's see if we see both of them together tonight. Worst case scenario, Kaley has to hire somebody else.  Bri sings out "Yo & I" by Lady Gaga. And... CHRISTINA makes a Big Bang. And... there goes Cee-Lo to join her! And that bank was JUST IN TIME. Briana decides to pick... "GIRL POWER!" That's another show, but have fun with CHRISTINA.

George Horga Jr. (19; Portland, OR) is the son of Romanian immigrants, and living the American dream. He moved to Hollywood when he was 18 to pursue music in "a real way". Yeah, reality TV. That's real. He's going to try on "Treasure" by Bruno Mars. Cee-Lo treasures it. And he's the only one, so Cee-Lo comes away with one.

We're moving into fast-forward...

CEE-LO: R&B singer Anthony Paul ("With You")
BLAKE: pop singer Cilla Chan ("Come and Get It")
CHRISTINA: rocker Jacob Poole ("Marry Me")

Last up tonight, it's Preston Pohl (26; Hallettsville, TX), who grew up with music in the church. He actually got a record deal as a guitarist in a Christian rock band. Three years after the band formed, his guitarist mentor Ron passed away... and that really did it for the band. He sees "The Voice" as a second chance to get back into the limelight. He'll close up with MGMT's "Electric Feel" . The men are in... Christina? No dice. But the decision is wholly and solely with the singer who, at the moment, is lost for words. He goes for... ADAM! And that's your show for the night. Tomorrow, assuming the gub'mint haven't shut the website down or taken the mics home, we're going to round out the teams.
