Shawn 'Big Sexy' Smith not only made #TeamCeeLo on 'The Voice,' he also put Utica on the map.  After singing Zac Brown Band's 'Chicken Fried,' he proudly told Cee Lo Green he was from Utica New York.

Cee Lo was looking for a sign from the audience on whether or not to turn his chair and fill the last spot on his team. It worked, but the sign wasn't from the crowd, it was on Shawn's belt, which said 'Big Sexy.' Now Blake Shelton wants one too.

Shawn and his supporters were on hand at 'Shots Sports Bar' to watch the show, and sent us this great picture on Twitter.

Keith James, was also on hand to video tape the bar and everyone's reaction to when Shawn came on

#TeamBlake filled his last two spots with country singers Brandon Chase and Brian Pounds.  Although he had to fight Cee Lo for both. Luckily there were both smart, and choose to go with country boy, and three time winner, Blake Shelton.

Brian Pounds 'Wagon Wheel'

The best of the blind auditions air tonight on NBC at 8pm. Next week the battle rounds begin. Tune in to see if Shawn wins his battle and show your support with this banner.
