He's the Sexiest Coach Alive – and a victorious one, too.
It was a pretty spectacular night for Voice coach Adam Levine, who was not only revealed as PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive on the show by host Carson Daly, but managed to keep all three of his teammates out of the bottom three during Tuesday night's live elimination show.
Tessanne Chin, 28, James Wolpert, 22, and Will Champlin, 30, all advanced to the Top 8, making Levine, 34, the only coach to have three singers still in the competition.
Christina Aguilera was the only other coach who avoided the bottom three, as she saw 16-year powerhouse Jacquie Lee and serial showstopper Matthew Schuler, who turns 21 Wednesday, advance to next week's live performance show.

Matthew Schuler, who blew away the judges on The Voice last week with his impassioned version of "Hallelujah," did not disappoint again on Monday night's show, taking on the Labrinth (featuring Emeli Sandé) love ballad, "See Beneath Your Beautiful," as a song of hope for future romance, noting he was single but keeping his eyes open for a wife.
By the time Schuler finished, the crowd would not stop cheering, prompting the minister's son to lower his head and seem near tears. "Thank you. That's something else," the 20-year-old singer from Yardley, Pa., said humbly, barely heard over the noisy appreciation.
His excited coach Christina Aguilera admitted that she, too, was "blown away," adding, "Tonight you did show a different side of yourself, wanting this to be dedicated to your future love, your future wife."

The son and grandson of ministers, Schuler offered a passionate tribute to his gospel roots that left his mother – watching from the audience – in tears and his coach praising his follow-through on her advice to "be fearless."

The Voice revealed its Top 12 Thursday night, thanks to America's votes and some anguished decisions from the coaches.
Earlier in the week, the remaining five contestants from each team delivered a string of strong performances during the first live shows. The two singers from each team with the most votes would automatically advance to the next round, while the coaches had to choose to save just one of their three remaining teammates.
Blake Shelton – fresh from his Male Vocalist of the Year win at Wednesday's CMA awards – was in the hot seat first. Host Carson Daly revealed that America had saved soulful Austin Jenckes and funky Cole Vosbury, which meant Shelton was forced to choose between pop singer Nic Hawke, powerhouse country singer Shelbie Z. and "swamp pop" artist Ray Boudreaux.

She's the youngest performer on The Voice this season, but Jacquie Lee's performance on the second night of live shows Tuesday showed she just might be the one to beat.
The 16-year-old New Jersey high school student on coach Christina Aguilera's team, closed out the evening with an electrifying version of Nina Simone's "I Put a Spell on You."
The jaw-dropping performance awed fellow coach Cee Lo Green, whose team also performed Tuesday, and even left him a little angry.
"Oh my God, Jacquie. Damn," he exclaimed once the roaring crowd quieted down. "That was the absolute best. [It was] like the past and the present and you are most certainly the future."

The Voice's first live show featured a slew of strong singers on Monday but Tessanne Chin turned in the performance of the night.
The Jamaican singer, 28, amped up the glamour with red nails and lips, as she took Jimmy Cliff's "Many Rivers to Cross" to a fierce level.
As the night's last performer, Chin (who'd been Cliff's backup singer) wiped away tears as her coach, Adam Levine, and the crowd gave her a standing ovation.

Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine did something on Tuesday that no Voice judges had ever done before – they stole back singers who they'd previously cut loose in the battle rounds.
Thanks to a new twist, the coaches were each given one steal during this week's knockout rounds – the final hurdle before the live shows kick off next week.
Levine grinned like a schoolboy as he pressed his button for Will Champlin, a young dad whose father is Chicago band member Bill Champlin.

Fans got quite the shakedown on The Voice Monday thanks to an eye-opening, sexy and unexpected hip shake from Jasper, Ala., native Shelbie Z., who turned it up several notches on the show's first evening of knockout rounds.
The hairdresser and beauty-pageant coach not only owned Carrie Underwood's morning-after confessional "Last Name," she also showed real star potential and plenty of attitude, playing with her long blond hair provocatively but letting her growling vocals steal the night for Team Blake.
"So much presence and charm and personality – wow," Cee Lo Green exclaimed, while Christina Aguilera called it "one of the most confident performances in the knockouts I've seen."
