Some interesting information was discerned during The Voice episode 2. Country superstar Blake Shelton and pop powerhouse Miley Cyrus swiveled around in their respective red coaches' chairs during Marlow's performance. Shelton turned first, followed quickly by Levine and Hudson.

Blake told Keisha that he moved from Oklahoma to Nashville when he was 17-years-old with the goal of becoming a country singer and he never even had a backup plan.

Hudson is a Oscar, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, BAFTA and Grammy Award victor and previously served as a coach on the United Kingdom version of the show earlier this year. Adam Levine said, "you know you're like the whitest dude". Once again, Blake and Miley turned their chairs around, along with Adam. "And we know at times, when you sing like that, you better be prepared to do what?" She's clearly the right one to elevate his performance, as she more than proved by pouncing right up on that stage to turn his verses into something worth listening to with some clutch on-the-spot adjustments.

Specifically, celebrity coach Miley Cyrus said that she wants to be taken seriously in country music - she's sort of country royalty, thanks to dad Billy Ray Cyrus ("Achy Breaky Heart") and godmother Dolly Parton. Though Miley had wanted her, Maharasyi went with Jennifer. Adam admitted that he was probably Keisha's least likely choice, but argued that the best way for her to become "the best version of yourself" was by not fitting in.

Almost half of all abortions each year worldwide are unsafe, study says
The Lancet study reviewed data on abortions from 61 countries, categorising them on a scale of "safe" to "least safe". They found that, in total, about 55.7 million abortions occurred annually worldwide between 2010 and 2014.

Red Marlow, 40 of Dickson, Tennessee, belts out country hit "Swingin'" by John Anderson and has Shelton and Cyrus begging for him to join their respective teams. Though it seemed she had a good chance at getting Red on her team, he chose Team Blake.

Ashland Craft, closed out the show with her edgy, countrified take on the classic "You Are My Sunshine". In a sneak peek clip of the upcoming season, Cyrus revealed that she already has a plan in place to win the competition.

We have no idea, as does anyone else at this point, whether Simpson will win "The Voice".
