The Voice 2013 Blind Auditions wrapped up this week as all four coaches finished building their Season 5 teams. Now they’ll cut those teams down as we head into the Battle Rounds next week. Before we get there, though, we’re getting to know all four teams a little better.

Today we’re focusing Team Cee Lo and seeing if he and his team have what it takes to take the title away from Blake this season.

Caroline Pennell, Saddle River, NJ

About the Artist: “Caroline’s parents met in an a cappella group in college, so it was only a matter of time until Caroline got the music bug. She learned to sing at summer camp and took the skills she learned to record a full album this past year. She’s never performed at a large venue before, so The Voice will be her biggest audience yet.” — NBC
