"Shakira is hungry for a victory! She's starving – she's a 'she wolf!'" shouted Adam Levine, in reference to the female coach's 2009 hit and new strategies during The Voice blind auditions.

Sometimes she's sassy and aggressive -- as we've seen much more often than ever this season -- but other times, she's back to those maternal instincts that won viewers over during season four. "You can allow yourself to be vulnerable with me," she told one contestant on Monday.

But Usher immediately told that auditionee, "Do you want a mom or a mentor?" Though the question silenced the audience -- and definitely affected that singer's decision on which team to choose -- it also encapsulated Shakira's upcoming coaching dilemma as she continues through her second season, and her first on the show without any kind of spillover pregnancy symptoms.
