All four judges turn their chair to see Jesse Campbell, before Adam Levine pushes two buttons for Tony Lucca, who used to be a Mouseketeer alongside Christina Aguilera.
"The Voice" season 2 was officially kicked off after the Super Bowl XLVI telecast. Opening the blind auditions was RaeLynn, who sang Miranda Lambert's "Hell on Heels". Adam Levine hit the button for her, followed by Blake Shelton. After the two mentors engaged in a little smack, the 17-year-old girl chose to join Blake's team.
Jesse Campbell came up next, turning the heads of all four judges with his rendition of "A Song For You". Blake tried to lure the 42-year-old contestant by praising, "What an impact you've already made on this show," but the single father chose Christina Aguilera as his coach.
Cee-Lo Green finally got one member for his team after Juliet Simms picked him over Adam and Xtina. The only female judge later added another member to her team after Chris Mann auditioned by singing "Because We Believe".
Tony Lucca, who happens to have been one of the Mousketeers with Xtina, became the first member of Adam's team. The "Ain't No Other Man" songstress and Blake also hit the button for him, but it was the Maroon 5 frontman who showed big confidence in him by hitting two buttons (his and Cee-Lo's).
The premiere episode also included some unsuccessful auditions, including Daniel Rosa who put off the judges with his pitchiness. Taking the result well, the 20-year-old singing hopeful asked some advice from the mentors on his way out.
