Blake Shelton is the most-winning coach in The Voice history, and it looks as if he's poised for another win this season, as well. On Monday night (Apr. 29), a whopping Top 24 contestants sang for America's votes in a workmanlike two hours free of any fluff. That labor paid off, as on Tuesday (Apr. 30), that crew was cut in half.

The lucky ones that made it through were predictably announced with a fair amount of dramatic flair throughout an hourlong broadcast, and it became quickly clear which coach was the forerunner of the evening. Shelton moved an amazing six (of his total eight in the Top 24) through to the finals, making him the most promising bet to helm the eventual winner of this season.

"If you go home tonight, you can't let this discourage you," Shelton advised his team before the cuts were made. "For all of the people on my team—they're all so young. It's so early in the game for them, of life and pursuing this dream. My God!"

Needless to say, he didn't have to see a whole lot of discouragement. Of particular note was the fact that all three of his male country singers—Gyth Rigdon (who, according to host Carson Daly was the most-streamed Voice artist on Apple Music during the overnight voting window), Dexter Roberts and Andrew Sevener—flew through on America's votes with no issue. Are we on the books noting that this season may see one of these three take the top slot? It's not an impossible thought, by any means!

Things are coming down to the wire, so continue to check back here as we follow the journey of your favorites to the end.
