NBC's The Voice was slightly unusual tonight because it was almost a recap in and of itself. The purpose of the show tonight was to refresh the audience on who the contestants were, what they sang, and of course on whose team they are now. Having seen what feels like a zillion people get up there, sing, and either be rejected or take sides, it was really good to watch an overview of the people who will be part of the show this season. And this was a chance to go ahead and start picking favorites from Team Blake, Team Adam, Team Christina, or Team CeeLo.

Reflecting on who has joined The Voice season three, Christina said, "I like creating a team of diverse individuals, and the blind auditions are exciting for that reason." Blake added, "For all of these people, I can see them going to the end." Besides winning the competition and potentially getting eternal fame and glory, the winner of The Voice gets a much-coveted recording contract with Universal. As those who watched last season may remember, Team Blake won with Jermaine Paul, and on the very first season, Team Adam's Javier Colon won. Naturally, both of these judges are set on- nay, convinced of winning this season. It's a brand new year; anything could happen. So let's take a look at each team for season three.
Adam Levine likes to win, and he's not afraid to show it. In the least. He exudes a very confident demeanor, and it is obvious that he is ready to get back on top. Cee Lo described him as a car salesman who's very competitive. "There is no coach too difficult to crush," said Adam about his seemingly over-the-top, sleazy approach to winning over contestants. "The team's looking tough. I'm very excited. I can't wait for the battle rounds. I'm the most excited I've ever been about a team." And here is Adam's team made up of what he considers to be all-stars:
1. BrIan Keith's goal was to step out from his Grammy-winning father's shadow. His performance made all four chairs turn around. During the intense fight for him, Adam told him, "More than anyone I've seen, I'm dying to have you on my team!"
