Blind auditions came to a close Monday night on NBC's "The Voice," as each of the four coaches filled up their respective teams.

It means Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton have 16 contestants each, but still, Monday's episode wasn't without battles over potential contenders.

Nathalie Hernadez hit the stage first to perform Taylor Swift's "White Horse." Both Aguilera and Levine were impressed and turned their chairs around quickly. Green soon followed. Aguilera practically begged Hernadez to choose her. Levine pleaded as well, reminding Hernadez that one of his team members has won "The Voice." Some bickering ensued, and the 15-year-old contestant went with Levine.

Caitlin Michelle was the next artist to win over the judges with her rendition of Florence + the Machine's "Cosmic." Levine told her "You're awesome and I want you." Michelle felt the same and went with Team Adam.

Next up was Nichole Johnson who performed Kelly Clarkson's "Mr. Know it All." Both Green and Shelton were fans, but she went with Shelton.

Blind auditions continued with Chevonne, who used to tour with Lady Gaga. She sang The Pretenders' "Brass in Pocket" and won over Green.

Levine's team was complete after Kayla Nevarez sang Estelle's "American Boy." Aguilera tried hard to get Nevarez on her team, but lost out to Team Adam.

At only 14 years old, Celica Westbrook managed to wow judges with her performance of Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years." She joined Team Christina.

It was down to the wire with Rudy Parris' rendition of The Police's "Every Breath You Take." Shelton and Green both swiveled their chairs around, and Parris went with Shelton.

That left Green one more chance to round out his team. He walked away with country-turned-soul singer, Cody Belew.

Tuesday's episode will take a look back on the season. The battle rounds begin next week.
