'The Voice' 2013 recap: An American Idol crossover and Team Adam looking good

This season of The Voice is shaping up to have not only some of the best talent to date, but also some of the most eclectic.
In the second night of blind auditions we heard a folk duo, a Spanish ballad and a rock-country hybrid performance that turned all four chairs in what continues to be an impressive start to the season.

But first, remember Jon Peter Lewis? The cute but nerdy pen salesman formerly of American Idol top ten fame? (Fame being used as a relative term here.) He's back! Lewis and bandmate Ryan Hayes now make up Midas Whale (sound it out slowly with a drawl as if you're answering whether you'd like to grab a bite to eat). The Mumford and Sons-sounding folk duo's rendition of "Folsom Prison Blues" turned all four judges chairs.

Now, here's a question, should a show called The Voice (singular) really be allowing duo acts? They've done it before but it seems a little unfair. That being said, this is a duo America could get behind. The Morgan Twins from Monday night, while talented, lack the same personality and unique sound.

After chatting with Shakira in fluent Spanish (Lewis lived in Spain for a year and Hayes in Honduras) they went with Adam.

Pretty boy Josiah Hawley, sure to become a fan favorite, left modeling behind to try the singing thing and the boy sounds almost as good as he looks. His "Sunday Morning" netted him all three male judges' support. Adam said there were "moments that weren't working for me," but then back pedaled and told him to pick him if he wanted to win.

Blake, who seems easily distracted when it's his turn to talk, complimented the hunk's high-hair and then spent more time trying to replicate the look than offering any sort of reason why he should be his coach. In the end, Josiah, hearing the audience chant Usher's name, went with Usher, thus creating the sexiest contestant-coach pair to date.
