As expected, Christina Grimmie and Bria Kelly were standouts on the Season 6 premiere of The Voice Monday night.

But the show had already leaked their performances. Avid followers of the show probably already knew how great they were.

Meanwhile, a couple of other artists showed that Season 6 will not be a two-girl show, including music minister Biff Gore and the indie-folk duo of Dawn and Hawkes.

Biff turned four chairs with his version of "A Change is Gonna Come" and landed on Team Usher.

Dawn and Hawkes -- Miranda Dawn and Chris Hawkes -- turned in a simply beautiful rendition of "I've Just Seen a Face" and decided to join Team Adam.

Other advancing artists we met included T.J. Wilkins, Kristen Merlin, Jeremy Briggs and Jake Worthington.
