R&B crooner John Legend has been named the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine.
The Grammy-winning singer known for his silky-smooth vocals was revealed as this year's winner Tuesday night on NBC's The Voice.
He serves as a coach on the singing competition series with Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton.
The 40-year-old singer has followed in the footsteps of previous winners Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, David Beckham and last year's pick, Idris Elba.
Legend tells the magazine in an issue out Friday the honour comes with some pressure after following Idris Elba, who was last year's winner. He jokes it “is not fair and is not nice to me!”
The 40-year-old Legend is a 10-time Grammy winner. He scored an Oscar in 2015 for co-writing the song “Glory” from the film “Selma.” He won a Tony Award for his co-producer work on “Jitney” and took home an Emmy as a producer on NBC's live version of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” a project in which he also played the role of Jesus.
Legend has two children with model-television host-cookbook author Chrissy Teigen.
Other recent winners include Dwayne Johnson, Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine, Channing Tatum and David Beckham.
