Blake Shelton, 2017's Sexiest Man Alive, broke the news on "The Voice" Tuesday that his fellow coach Legend, the Grammy-winning husband of Chrissy Teigen, was the recipient of this year's honor.
"It is my duty to formally introduce the next 'Sexiest Man Alive,' " Shelton said. "He just so happens to be here tonight. Ladies and gentlemen, the man, the myth, the Legend: 2019's Sexiest Man Alive.' "
Shelton continued, "You already came into this show with an EGOT. And, then you won 'The Voice,' so it became a VEGOT. Now you have a VEGOTSMA," referring to Legend's legendary list of accolades. "Mostly I want to thank Blake Shelton," said Legend. "I sat next to him for the last few months and learned his sexy ways. I observed every move he made, every utterance from his mouth. And some of it rubbed off on me."
Legend said Teigen was "legit proud of me" for the honor as his wife went on a Twitter binge. "I cannot WAIT for people to get mad about John being the sexiest man alive," she wrote. "It's my new Starbucks holiday cup."
