Everything happened in real-time last night as it was Night 1 of the live shows. It was the night for three-time champion Blake Shelton and his team to face off against Adam Levine's team, as the first 10 of the Top 20 performed in hopes of advancing to the Top 12.

Judging by this week's nightlife offerings, Thursday has the most talent. If you missed out on Guns N' Roses tickets (sorry Axl enthusiasts, if you lost out on tickets), there's Rick Ross, Islands and White Life to choose from. But there are plenty of options during the other six days, so let's get on to the most notable events: On Monday, frat-friendly Connecticut rapper Chris Webby performs at the Ottobar ( $18 ). Just outside of the city, the young Australian pop heart-throb Cody Simpson plays Fillmore Silver Spring ( $22.50 )

On Night 3 of blind auditions, hopefuls get 90 seconds to showcase their talent and hopefully end up on one of the coaches' teams. Coaches Adam, CeeLo, Christina and Blake were all ready to add more talent to their growing teams. It was a big night for some, while others didn't exactly make the cut. Going into last night's show coach Adam had five members for his team, while CeeLo, Christina and Blake all went into the night with four. Louisiana native and single father Ray Boudreaux started the show.

After an exciting first night, it was time for the Fantastic Four to come back and pick more strong voices for their teams. Going into the night, Christina and CeeLo both had two singers, Blake only had one and Adam had landed the most talent, with three. Starting off the competition was 16-year-old Jersey girl Jacquie Lee. After singing in children's hospitals, it was time for her to take her gift to a bigger stage. In classic "The Voice" fashion, Jacquie performed the Amy Winehouse power ballad “Back to Black.” Coaches Christina and Blake turned around to see who had the voice to match the power of the song.

During his rare hours of relaxation, Blake Shelton wanted something real and earthy to play. "Drinking a beer and kicking back -- that's how I unwind," says the country star, who's calling from a tour stop in Fresno, Calif. "I wanted to make a record that you can play on a jukebox somewhere in a friendly bar or something." He's talking about his latest album, Blake Shelton's Barn & Grill. The gold-selling disc, his third release overall, is the singer-songwriter's most fully realized set to date.

Phew! Two hours of “The Voice” is a lot to process. The NBC show was heavy on the tug-at-your-heartstrings contestant backstories tonight, which can make for some intense emotional weight-lifting. But we all survived, and slowly but surely, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton are building up their teams. So let's tackle the new additions first. Team Christina Halley and Leland are a Nashville duo who call themselves “The Line.” Their cover of Tom Petty's “American Girl” got the crowd clapping and singing along with the anthemic chorus, and got all the judges to spin their chairs.

We're about half done with the battle rounds on NBC's "The Voice," and coaches have been making some tough decisions in whittling down their teams. But for every few cuts they make, an addition happens with a steal. Interesting thing to note: After tonight, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green have used up both their "steals" while Christina Aguilera has yet to use a single one. Watch out for Christina, I feel like wily-ness will soon follow with her. TEAM BLAKE Blake Shelton paired up mariachi singer Julio Cesar Castillo with Terisa Griffin on Gloria Estefan's "Conga," and I don't know about you, but I find great comfort knowing we live in a world in which Blake knows and enjoys the music of Gloria Estefan.

“When the going gets tough…the tough gets going” With the start of the top-eight performance night, Team Usher and Shakira each have one contestant keeping them in the competition, while Team Adam and Blake have 3 competitors each. It's time for some other coaches to leave, simply because we just aren't ready to see Usher leave The Voice. Kicking off the Memorial Day show, “rarely sober” coach Blake Shelton performed his new single, “Boys Round Here”. Team Adam: Judith Hill, “#ThatPower,” by Will.

After tonight, we only have one night left of blind auditions left on NBC's "The Voice. " Can you believe it?! Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton have precious few spots left on their teams, and there's still so much talent to go around. Sylvia Yacoub, 19, of Michigan/Egypt, with Rihanna's "Only Girl (In the World)" Sylvia basically attacked this song, and handled it with power and mastery. She caught Christina's attention pretty quickly, and Cee Lo and Blake pushed their buttons soon after.

Spots are getting scant on the teams of NBC's "The Voice" so the coaches are getting pickier and pickier (and sassier and sassier) and competition's getting fierce. But for the contestants, it's still all about singing and dreams. Michelle Brooks-Thompson, 28, from Massachusetts with "Proud Mary" by CCR A football-hopeful husband with dashed dreams created a kind of parallel for Michelle, and the last thing she wanted was for both of their dreams to be crushed. But Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green both turned their chairs before the tempo shift even kicked.

It's the last night of blind auditions, and each coach only has two spots left on their teams. You ready? Because the best moment in NBC's "The Voice" history happened tonight. Nathalie Hernandez, 15, from Florida with Taylor Swift's "White Horse" Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton pushed their buttons within three notes of Nathalie's song, and Adam Levine soon followed. Adorable moment of the night: A simple smile and "thank you" when her song was finished. Not an iota of arrogance to this one, and I like it. Nathalie was splendid, but T. Swift isn't really my cup of tea -- still, she left quite an impression on the coaches, and she chose Christina.
