Chicagoan wows Christina Aguilera on 'The Voice'

A 100 percent Irish Chicagoan inspired Christina Aguilera to do a duet with him on Monday's final blind auditions episode of NBC's "The Voice."

Michael Lynch sang Enrique Iglesias' multi-lingual “Bailamos," getting Aguilera, CeeLo Green and Blake Shelton to turn their chairs. They were all surprised to see a blonde-haired, blue-eyed white guy. He learned Spanish in school and fell so in love with the language he went to Mexico City to try to make it as a singer there.

Apparently that didn't work out, so there he was, wowing the judges. When Lynch chose to join Team Christina, she jumped on stage, asked for a mic and did a quick salsa and sing-a-long with the 27-year-old.

The clip below shows Lynch's performance followed by the aftermath with Aguilera.

Also last night, Lupe Carroll of Bourbonnais chose Team CeeLo. Lynch and Carroll join Chicago resident Sam Cerniglia in the competition. Cerniglia chose Team Blake in an earlier episode.
