The Voice Recap: Send in the…Clowns?

3 April 2012 6:45 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Menacing mimes. Male strippers. Cee Lo Green in a slinky red jumpsuit with deep-plunging, lace-up neckline and a delicate ladywig. Carson Daly turning superlatives into bowls of lukewarm mush.

Unga sang "Maybe I'm Amazed," and during her song, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, and Cee-Lo turned their chairs around. While her dad danced backstage, Unga burst into tears at the end of her song, her hands shaking as she introduced herself to the judges.

Then, the judges introduced themselves to her. "I am the a-hole who didn't pick you," Adam Levine admitted.

Aguilera says, "I loved what I heard. It's definitely stiffer competition this year... I heard that soulful little ad-lib in the low end and I love, love, loved it." She also noted that she's got more time and attention to offer her contestants, »
