Love was in the air every time the coaches turned around on Sunday's episode of The Voice.
With teams filling up and only a few more nights of blind auditions to go, the coaches have become harder to please.
But newlywed Julian Simonsz must've been channelling his marital bliss when he took to the stage to sing Suit and Tie.

Married the same week as his audition was taped, Simonsz's smooth yet energetic take on Justin Timberlake's falsetto-heavy song impressed all four coaches.
And good thing it did - he'd postponed his honeymoon for the audition.
After Joel ran behind stage to retrieve Simonsz's thrilled new bride, the Melburnian said his wedding had been the best day of his life.
"(But) this is pretty close," he laughed.
With his wife kissing his shoulder and clutching his hand, the audio producer even got a generous offer from Will.I.Am: "You need to use my trailer?"
But the course of love didn't run quite as smooth for punk-pop rockers Nick McClure and Rachel Giusti.
The young pair, also from Melbourne, auditioned straight after each other.
Giusti gave a determined but slightly strained performance of Lady Gaga's You and I, while her beau followed on with Naive, by The Kooks.
But neither managed to turn a chair.
Embracing afterwards, at least the young lovers proved the couple that sings together, stays together.
Sassy Sydney girl Nicole Martini didn't get a chair to turn but made an impression with her brassy quips nonetheless.
The 28-year-old explained her weight fluctuations matter-of-factly - "I've gone from bombshell to bomb, and back again" - and made her partner promise her a puppy if all the judges turned for her before hitting the stage.
But it was her shutdown to Will.i.Am's suggestion she was singing in Spanish (her choice, Caruso, was actually Italian) that took the cake.
"If I could speak Spanish baby I'd be talking to him," she smirked, pointing to Ricky.
Best professional handball
As a 16-year-old growing up in New Zealand, Maybelle Galuvao had followed her musical dreams by joining a girl band.
But after her husband Joe's career as a professional rugby player took off, she put her entertaining career on the backburner.
Now 35, it's her turn again. Her performance of Gravity was soulful and controlled, which got Kylie writhing in her seat before she hit her buzzer.
Best family support
Daughter of talent agent Mark Morrissey, Mia wanted to make it on her own terms by competing on The Voice.
The 19-year-old's fragile take on Cyndi Lauper's True Colours was almost too delicate for the judges, until a late turn from Ricky booked her a place in the battle rounds.
But it was her little sister, not dad, who proved her biggest supporter.
When the Puerto Rican hit his buzzer at the very last moment, the anxious younger sibling couldn't help herself, jumping and squealing like a true fan girl.
