Blake Shelton Proves Popular in “The Voice” Premiere

The fourth season of NBC's hit singing series The Voice returned last night with two hours of blind auditions. And when it was all over, Blake Shelton already had three artists on Team Blake—well, four, if you count the Morgan sisters, an identical-twin singing duo.

The reveal of the blond beauties perplexed judges Blake, Adam Levine and newbies Usher and Shakira, who filled the red chairs left vacant by the departing Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera. Ultimately, though, the Morgan Twins chose Blake as their coach, as did 16-year-old Texan Danielle Bradbery (who sang Taylor Swift's "Mean") and wry singer Christian Porter (who interpreted LMFAO "Sexy and I Know It" as an acoustic rave-up). 

A second night of blind auditions airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET. 

What did you think of The Voice premiere and Blake's new chair-mates, Usher and Shakira?
