The Voice season 3 auditions continue tonight and the teams are starting to fill up. Coaches/judges Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera have already filled up half their teams. From here on out The Voice auditions are only going to get tougher as the coaches have to pick and choose the perfect singers to complete their dream teams. Join us for our The Voice recap of the blind auditions round 5 and see who the coaches pick tonight!
Last night on The Voice season 3 auditions, we once again were gifted with some truly fabulous performers, although I think the talent dropped off just a bit from last week’s premiere shows. Still, there were some terrific The Voice 2012 auditions last night and I’m hoping tonight is going to bring us even more spectacular performances.

Our first hopeful of the evening is Bronx, New York native Trevanne Howell. A single mother of two children, she says she has no regrets in life. She goes for a huge song, performing “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston. unfortunately, she seems to have bitten off more than she can chew because none of the judges turn for her.
Coaches: Blake says no one is sadder than Cee Lo Green right now. Cee Lo just feels it was too much. Christina says there were some good moments, but it was too shaky of a performance. Adam says it was brave and ambitious, but just too much for her.
Now up is Colin McLoughlin, who quit NYU to become a singer against his parents’ wishes. Apparently it might have been the right idea as his performance of “Wild World” by Cat Stevens manages to snag two of the coaches to his cause, Blake, Cee Lo and Adam.
Coaches: Christina thought the song was too mellow for her and that is why she didn’t turn around. Cee Lo loved the performance and was impressed. Blake says he couldn’t help singing along. Adam says he has one of the best tones in the auditions and had a pure sound. Colin decides to choose Adam as his coach.
Joselyn Rivera was a late bloomer after she was born premature and spent years in a hospital. Music was the best therapy and brought her out of her shell. She gives a lovely performance of “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” by Kelly Clarkson that ends with Christina and Blake battling for her to join their teams.
Coaches: Blake says he was caught up in her performance and had to push his button. Christina says she wants to nuture her on her team. Blake interrupts to jokingly tease that Christina is mean and abusive. It is no use though, Joselyn decides to pick Christina.
Race car driver Benji didn’t have enough cash to continue racing, so he decide to turn to music instead. He thinks if he is meant to be a singer, it will happen for him. He is a lot of fun to watch performing “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” by Bob Dylan and he gets both Adam and Cee Lo to turn around for him.
Coaches: Adam loves his performance and his scream. He says Benji is the real thing. Christina also says she loved his screaming and he had great moments with a bit of “Adam” flavor. Cee Lo says Benji has heart and soul and it was great. Benji decides he is going to choose Adam for his coach.
Cee Lo scores a bunch of singers in a brief montage of other successful The Voice auditions for the night with Todd Kessler, Ben Taub and Emily Earle.
Lorraine Ferro, 52, is a voice coach who has been singing since she was a child. She performs “Skyscraper” by Demi Lovato but fails to impress any of the coaches. Unfortunately she suffers the fate of most ‘vocal coaches’ on reality TV talent competitions — she is sent home.
Coaches: Cee Lo says she is beautiful, but her high notes were not right and she lacks control. Blake says the performance was inconsistent and there just wasn’t any spark.
The final performance of the night comes from Mycle Wastman, who has a major sob story. Mycle’s parents died of disease when he was little and his grandfather, who raised him, just died a little over a week ago. Mycle performs “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green. Although not my style, he sounds great and has Adam, Cee Lo and Blake spinning.
Coaches: Adam manages to narrowly avoid saying “oh, you’re not black” while Cee Lo gives Mycle a standing ovation. Everyone thinks he was terrific and the boys battle to get him on their team. With his soulful voice, it seems the best fit for him is probably on Cee Lo’s team and that is who he chooses.
