    The never-ending enchanting blind auditions wrapped up Monday on "The Voice," and each coach completed their team of singers. Of course, those choices weren't made without arguing amongst coaches and broken hearts.

    So how did Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine's teams round out? Let's talk giant red chairs and high-caliber talent:

    Nathalie Hernadez hits the stage first and wows the judges with Taylor Swift's breakup ballad "White Horse." After some bickering back and forth (shocking), Hernadez chooses Christina's team. "That's it. That's it. You have pissed me off for the last time," Blake semi-grunted at Xtina.

    Next, Caitlin Michelle took on Florence + the Machine's hit "Cosmic." She nailed it, and Adam wooed her from Blake's team with one line: "You're awesome and I want you." Welcome to team Adam!

    Nicole Johnson wrote her first song when she was just 7 years old (while the rest of us were coloring inside the lines), and now she's onstage singing Kelly Clarkson's "Mr. Know It All" with some twang. Both Cee Lo and Blake Shelton turned, but all it took was the signature finger-point from the country man to win over the country girl

    After passing on Kameron Corvet (with a cool name like that, how could he fail?) the judges heard from Chevonne, who used to tour with Lady Gaga. She chose the Pretenders' "Brass in Pocket" for her blind audition. "You know you want her!" her family shouted from backstage while Chevonne sang for her future. Her family was right, and she joined Cee Lo's team. After that pick, only one spot remained on each team. Oh, the drama!

     

    Carson sounds off on Christina and Cee Lo's season four exit: "It'll keep things fresh!"

    Next up was Kayla Nevarez with "American Boy," earning a swivel from Christina and Adam. "My team did win The Voice," Adam reasoned. That was enough for Nevarez, who dissed Christina for Adam's team. And with this, the Maroon Five-r completed his team.

    At age 14, Celica Westbrook was thisclose to a record deal and was in talks to tour with Justin Bieber (ever heard of him?). "What are they giving these kids?" Blake demanded after the now 16-year-old rocked the stage. She chose to be the final member on Christina's team. Two teams full! Two more to go.

    Country singer Jessica Cayne took the stage, and we figured she'd be the last addition to Blake's team. Alas, no one turned for her. However, she did get a hug from Christina, which is almost as good, right?

    NBC renewed "The Voice" for two more seasons

    Rudy Parris' song choice wins the random award, as he sang the Police's "Every Breath You Take." Don't get us wrong, we love that jam, but with only two spots left your song choice has to be perfect. Apparently it was just that, because Parris nabbed Blake's final team slot. Which just leaves Cee Lo's team!

    Cody Belew was basically performing for one judge and one judge only with Otis Redding's "Hard to Handle, and he gave off Elvis vibes to boot. But did he give off the right vibes for Cee Lo's team? He did indeed, and thus, the coaches finished picking their singing warriors.

    After many rounds of blind auditions, who do you think has the strongest team this season? Next up: battles!
