'The Voice' enacts the steal
Host Carson Daly and Coach Cee Lo Green explain the steal.
It was another dramatic night on NBC’s The Voice when the steal was enacted during Team Adam’s performance.

Performing “Lights” by Ellie Goulding, the two unique performers, Melanie Martinez and Caitlin Michelle, brought it with what Christina Aguilera called “the prettiest and most moving performance of the whole day.”

Though their performances were somewhat lacking during rehearsals with Adam Levine and Mary J. Blige, both contenders were amazing in their emotional and evenly matched performance once they hit the stage. In fact, not one of the other judges had any advice for Levine on which singer should continue to the knockout round as they were both good.

So who did Adam pick? And which coach was successful in stealing the other contestant?

With Adam unable to keep both singers on his team, he told everyone he was going with his gut. “My initial gut and the person that moved me the most from the beginning was Melanie,” said Levine.

Shortly after, both Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton hit their buttons and put their gloves up to steal theatre student, Caitlin Michelle.

Both coaches battled it out with a particularly hilarious exchange after Shelton said, “I don’t know, Caitlin, it just seems like a natural fit.” To which Cee Lo responded, “No, it does not.”

The usually laid back coach pulled out all the stops to recruit the singer. “Unique is my first name.” he said. “My full name is Unique Cee Lo Green.” For extra measure, he even added, “Come to me, my dark princess.”

With her unique flair, it was no surprise she chose Cee Lo as her new coach.

Other notable performances on Tuesday included Team Christina’s Aquile and Nathalie Hernandez and Team Cee Lo’s Cody Belew and Domo. Aquile prevailed during his performance with Nathalie on “You Give Me Something.” Cody and Domo rocked it to Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” complete with choreography with Belew continuing on to the next round.

Additional singers cut during Tuesday’s episode include smog technician Charlie Rey, who battled Rudy Parris, and former gymnast Lisa Scinta who sang with Celica Westbrooke.

The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 PM on NBC.
