Check out the live blog for my commentary on night two of The Voice’s blind auditions!

The Voice  Season Two – Blind Auditions Live Blog!

– The coaches are kicking off tonight’s show with a Prince medley.

– I’m still amazed that the coaches’ voices work well together…

– Adam sounds the best, to be honest…he’s got that higher range on lock!

– Countrified version of “Kiss”…not too shabby!

Haley & Leland – The Line

– Singing “American Girl” by Tom Petty.

– Blake is the first to turn around.

– Leland has a great tone to his voice.

– Haley sounds a bit nervous.

– Cee Lo, Adam & Xtina turn around as well!

– They go with Christina! I’m a little shocked! Okay, a lotta shocked. I pegged them to go with Blake.

Neal Middleton, 33, Utah

– Singing “I Heard It Through The Grapevine”

– Rockin’, revved up rendition…

– Coaches are commenting to each other that he has a good voice, but no one’s turning around…

– None of the coaches turn around.

– Christina wanted more range, Adam wants more of a unique voice.

– She has a super unique voice, with a little bit of twang tossed in.

– Blake is the first to turn around, followed by Cee Lo!

– Last minute turnaround from Adam!

– Gwen is on Team Blake!

Pamela Rose, 27, Florida

– Singing “Already Gone” by Kelly Clarkson

– I have a strong belief that the only person that should sing Kelly Clarkson songs is Kelly Clarkson.

– This is a little bit of a hot mess.

Dez Duron, 21, Louisiana

– Yale football player, gave it up to pursue music.

– He’s singing “I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys.
