We have a winner!
Shakira melted the hearts of The Voice audience members at the show's battle round taping on Tuesday evening in Burbank, Calif., when she showed off her new son, Milan, born in January.
While on a break between contestant performances, the singer beamed when she was handed her baby boy. Holding her son up so the cheering audience could see him, Shakira then sat back down in her red chair, cradling her babe while their picture was taken.
The show's host, Carson Daly (also a dad), went right over and starting 'oohing' and 'ahhing' at Shakira's little guy, while coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine took quick peeks before returning to their seats.
Moving Milan to the beat of fellow mentor Usher's "OMG," Shakira "was nothing short of a proud and doting mom," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. But just before the break, the 2½-month-old started to fuss – loud enough that his little cries echoed through the whole studio. After the crowd let out a cute 'aww,' Shakira handed her baby off to be taken backstage – but not before puffing out her bottom lip in protest. – Jessica Herndon

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.)

The talent pool got a bit deeper on The Voice Monday, when a new crop of artists of all ages had chairs turning on another night of blind auditions.
Ryan Innes, who performed last, impressed all four judges with his righteous yet controlled soul bend on John Mayer's bluesy "Gravity."
He picked Usher as his coach but not without mounds of praise from the competition.
"This is the most fun I've had listening all day," Blake Shelton told Innes, a rounded and bearded blue-eyed soul singer from Thatcher, Ariz.

Just before host Carson Daly announced Tuesday night that Team Blake's Jermaine Paul was the winner of this season's The Voice on NBC, Paul tells PEOPLE that he "couldn't look at anybody and allow myself not to believe. In that moment I prayed."
Despite Monday night's phenomenal final performance, when he sang R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly," Paul says his confidence was low going into the finale.
"I didn't feel good about the overall outcome," he says. "I didn't know if I was going to win or not."
