THE VOICE (L-R) - Adam Levine, Shakira, Usher, Blake Shelton

It's official: Usher's gone country.

On the third night of The Voice's blind auditions, the R&B musician recruited his first country act of the season, while Shakira compared herself to Alexander the Great and tried to translate Adam Levine's tattoo to help a contestant pick a coach.

Blake Shelton also explained why he doesn't turn for some jaw-dropping contestants. "I would've turned around, but this chair swings around really wide and Usher's jaw was laying right there, and I didn't want to mess up Usher's face," he joked. And when Usher started bragging about his industry friends, Shelton continued, "After I pick up your jaw, let me pick up these names that you're dropping too!"
