A surprise proposal and bromance between John Legend and Blake Shelton: The Voice

Blind auditions was resumed Monday on the singing competition, but as the teams are filling up, it is becoming more difficult for contestants to get a coveted chair-turn from Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, John Legend or Adam Levine. For Denton Arnell, the stakes were even higher because he had to not only get a "Yes" from one of the coaches, but also from his girlfriend, Tiffany. Arnell, a church youth director, put his own twist on Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home." Legend took notice, commending Arnell for getting "creative with the melody and making it your own." The singer joined Team Legend. The romance was temporarily lost after the two bumped heads really hard, but after some laughter (mainly from Clarkson), Arnell regained his composure and got down on one knee. Shelton started a one-sided alliance with Legend, campaigning heavily for the "All of Me" crooner: "I’m not afraid to say I’ve been siding with John. It’s his first season, he’s having a tough time." However, there was no happy ending for Shelton and Legend.
