The battle lines are officially drawn!

The Voice’s coaches finalized their teams of 12 singers Tuesday during the last night of blind auditions. (Spoilers ahead!)

Blake Shelton completed his team first when he scored classical ballerina-turned-tattooed rocker Jacqui Sandell from Oakland, N.J. The 24-year-old motivated both Blake and Usher to push their buttons with her rendition of “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac.

“Your voice is so sneaky,” Blake said as a compliment. “You have a very sexy sound.”

Sandell quickly chose to join Team Blake and proclaimed she was so excited she wanted “to pee my pants.” (Fortunately, she didn’t.)

Fellow veteran judge Adam Levine was the next to round out his team and looked triumphant when he was the only judge to turn around for country girl Amber Carrington of Rockwall, Texas, who was singing for her mom who passed away from breast cancer.

“Thank God,” Adam declared when she finished singing “Good Girl” by Carrie Underwood. “I was waiting for the horrifying reality that someone would turn their chair.”

Blake was sorry he didn’t have the chance. “I wish I could push my button for this girl,” he told her. “You nailed it.”

Later, Usher and Shakira fought over Luke Edgemon, 24, of Fayetteville, N.C., a background singer for Mary J Blige and Queen Latifah, to fill their final spot.
