"Voice" coach Blake Shelton wasn't picked by any of the hopefuls Tuesday.

After raking in stellar ratings on Monday night, "The Voice" returns for the second installment of its two-night premiere.

The four coaches -- Shakira, Usher, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine -- continue to turn their chairs for big voices and surprising talent.

Tawnya Reynolds

Song: “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys”

Coaches who turned their chairs: Levine, Usher, Shakira

This aspiring country singer couldn't get Shelton to turn his chair, but she got all three other coaches to notice her. She went with Shakira, despite Shelton's encouragement for her to choose Usher.

Josiah Hawley

Song: "Sunday Morning"

Coaches who turned their chairs: Shelton, Usher, Levine

He wants to be known as much more than a pretty face, but look at that face! The religious, married model sings "Sunday Morning," a Maroon 5 song. It's a risky move, but he gets Shelton, Usher, and yes, Levine, to turn for him. Surprisingly, he chooses Usher for his coach! Bold move. Usher serves up some even bolder dance moves in celebration.

Midas Whale

Song: "Folsom Prison Blues"

Coaches who turned their chairs: All four

This geeky, goofy folk duet belts out "Folsom Prison Blues" onstage. The first coach to turn his chair is, surprisingly, Usher, followed quickly by Shelton, Levine and Shakira. "I hope ya'll don't screw up the rest of your lives by going with one of these other coaches," says Shelton. Shakira has a long chat with them in Spanish, which is totally adorable. But the pair chooses Levine, making them his first duo ever.

Abraham McDonald

Song: "Best Thing I Never Had"

Coaches who turned their chairs: None

The 35-year-old grew up shy, but was pushed into the spotlight by his sister, who got him to compete in a karaoke contest for Oprah Winfrey. He has a voice as big as his stature, but his raspy voice doesn't turn any chairs.

Cathia

Song: "No Me Doy Per Vencido"

Coaches who turned their chairs: Usher, Shakira, Shelton

Studying music business, Cathia is looking for a mentor on the show. She takes a risk by singing in Spanish, her first language. Usher turns first, but we all know that everyone is looking towards Shakira, who turns her chair second. Shelton doesn't understand a word she's saying but he also turns his chair. The three coaches also give her a standing ovation. Shelton tries to play the veteran card, but Shakira name drops Gloria Estefan -- her own mentor. Cathia goes with Shakira, naturally.

Sarah Simmons

Song: "One of Us"

Coaches who turned their chairs: All four

After having her dad fall in and out of her life because of addiction issues, Sarah has finally rebuilt that relationship and is ready to perform for the coaches. She hits just the right note early on in her song and Shakira and Levine quickly hit their buttons. Her cool, unique, powerful voice gets Shelton and Usher to turn too. "I think you can win this thing and you may be in my top three singers I have ever heard audition for 'The Voice,' " says Shelton. But Adam's charm wins out again, and Sarah joins the Maroon 5 frontman's team.

So Shakira and Levine add two new members to their teams, Usher adds one and Shelton fails to add a single member to Team Blake.
