Leave it to coach Pharrell Williams to make a decision that had everyone's jaws on the floor.

Williams pitted California-based Elyjuh René, 18, against Ricky Manning, a 19-year-old Florida native who now sings in New York City subway stations. The duo received coaching from special advisor Taylor Swift, and initially all signs pointed to Manning for the win.

Is the biggest talent to emerge on The Voice this season not a contestant, but newbie coach Pharrell Williams?

It sure looked that way Tuesday night, when the "Happy" singer/songwriter showed off his tender side and tactical strategy while playing a key role in all three battles featured on the second night of the battle rounds.

The show kicked off with Team Pharrell, and pitted Alabama college student Jordy Searcy, 20, against musician-turned-Texas-family-man Taylor Phelan, 25, singing the moving hit "Breakeven (Falling to Pieces)." Williams, along with advisor Alicia Keys, focused on coaxing more emotional performances out of the pair.

Gavin Rossdale and his wife, Gwen Stefani, don't get a lot of downtime. 

"That's why I called my new Bush album Man on the Run," he tells PEOPLE of his band's newest release, out now. "It's such an incredible pace we all live at, and we're all sort of scattered and challenged. There's not enough hours in the day, or days in the week. I have my first afternoon off in three weeks later today, and I'm giddy with excitement! I don't actually know what to do with the time."

Even so, when the rock star's wife, 44, asked if he wanted to join her on The Voice as a mentor for her team this season, he was immediately game to add it into his already packed schedule.

Season 7 of The Voice turned a competitive corner Monday in the fifth and final night of the show's blind auditions.

Adam Levine, a veteran coach and two-time winner, showed he was still in it to win it, snagging the night's most mature contestant and the evening's only four-chair turn with Aiken, South Carolina, radiology technician Beth Spangler, 30.

Maybe it was her black leather overalls, or sassy haircut, or sunshine smile. But likely it was Spangler's sparkling vocal range and her ease in helming Beyoncé's "Best Thing I Never Had" that had the coaches in a full-on fight for her attention as each got picky in sparring over the last few star contestants.

It's official: Pharrell Williams will pretty much stop at nothing to win over a contestant he wants on The Voice.

The master singer-songwriter-producer-and-hat-wearer wooed contestants using everything from expertly crafted sales pitches to doodling like a lovesick schoolboy in an attempt to win over promising contestants as season 7's blind auditions continued Tuesday.

His arsenal was on full display as the show kicked off with a commanding rendition of "At Last" by San Diego resident Katriz Trinidad, who sounded much older than her 15 years.
