Wowing the judges in the second part of the blind auditions are Adriana Louise who slays Jessie J's 'Domino', and Julio Caesar Castillo who sings 'La Bamba' entirely in Spanish.
"The Voice" season 3 continued with more blind auditions on its second day. Kicking off the night was Adriana Louise, a New York City-based waitress/singer, who had a tough life and claimed music was the only thing that made her happy. She sang a cover of Jessie J's "Domino" and nailed it.
Cee-Lo Green and Adam Levine turned around when Adriana barely sang through the first line. Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton pressed their chair buttons next, forcing the 22-year-old aspiring singer to choose one of the four coaches. She then decided to join team Xtina.
Next up was Casey Muessigmann, a wrestler-turned-singer, who delivered a rendition of "Sweet Home Alabama". Blake was the first who turned around, followed by Cee-Lo. Casey said he wanted to make great country music with Blake, so he chose to join Blake's team.
Aquile shared his sob story about getting his jaw broken at the age of 19. That night, he made Xtina, Adam and Cee-Lo press the button with his rendition of Elton John's classic "Your Song". "I want a private concert" was Xtina's comment, which apparently lured the 24-year-old contestant to join her team.
Also trying his luck on the singing competition was Ryan Fogarty, who is a tour production coordinator for LeAnn Rimes. "I was blown away. I really was," LeAnn said of her reaction when she noticed Ryan's talent during a karaoke night out with the crew. Unfortunately, his version of "Tomorrow" didn't manage to gain the attention of the coaches.
Following Ryan's performance, three other contestants failed to get into the coaches' teams. However, Mackenzie Bourg turned the situation around when he showed up on the show that night, a year and half after battling an illness that shut down his organs.
He sang "Pumped Up Kicks" while playing a guitar. Cee-Lo was the only one who turned around and automatically landed the boy. In their comments, Blake said the 19-year-old had a "Harry Potter vibe," while Xtina thought he kind of looks like Justin Bieber.
Last but not least, there was Julio Cesar Castillo. The Mariachi singer sang "La Bamba" entirely in Spanish and his risky attempt proved to be worth it since Blake and Cee-Lo turned their chairs for him. The 21-year-old decided to go with Blake.
To sum up the Tuesday, September 11 episode, Xtina and Blake added two members each to their teams, Cee-Lo nabbed one, while Adam didn't score any additional contestant. On the first night, each coach had nabbed two members for their teams.
