 Season three of The Voice kicks off with blind auditions Season three of The Voice kicks off with blind auditions

Season three of The Voice kicked off on Monday (10Sep12) with stand-out performers leading the way and a Grammy winner's son garnering the attention of all four judges. The signature spinning chairs are back in full effect as judges Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, and Blake Shelton returned to TV to find the best voice in America. The night was filled with talented performers, including 18-year-old Gracia Harrison, who earned high praise from Levine but stuck to her country roots and joined Team Blake. Energetic De'Borah also charmed the judges, as her soulful singing and quirky style won over Green and Aguilera. After confessing the Beautiful hitmaker was one of her idols, De'Borah decided to join Team Christina. Out of all the contestants on night one of the blind auditions, only one received the approval of all four judges. Bryan Keith, a 20 year old crooner from New York, had a lot to prove as his father Ray de la Paz is the lead singer of the Grammy Award-winning Latin band The Spanish Harlem Orchestra. Keith was determined not to use his father's success to launch his career and gave a powerful rendition of Bruno Mars' It Will Rain to prove he has what it takes to make a name for himself Aguilera commended the hopeful by saying he has a "signature voice", but Keith picked the Maroon 5 frontman to become his mentor. At the end of the episode, each judge had selected two contestants for their teams of 16. Night two of the blind auditions continues Tuesday (11Sep12).
