‘The Voice’: John Legend Jokes About Learning Blake Shelton’s Sexy Ways to Earn People’s Sexiest Man Alive
John Legend has been given the title of “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine. Blake Shelton took it upon himself to make the announcement on The Voice. Find out what Legend said about learning from Shelton and how his wife reacted to the news.
Blake Shelton was previously People’s Sexiest Man Alive
The Voice coach made headlines in 2017 for earning People magazine’s title Sexiest Man Alive. He had a lot to say about how he was going to use this against Adam Levine.
“That y’all must be running out of people,” he told People. “Like, Wow, we’re down to somebody who is somewhat symmetrical.” The country singer then joked, “I can’t wait to shove this up Adam’s a**.” He added, “As proud as I am and honored that you guys asked me, that’s really the only thing I care about.”
Shelton also claimed that Gwen Stefani pushed him to accepting the title. “She goes, ‘Listen to me, you’re going to regret this for the rest of your life if you don’t take this gift and just live in the moment,” he revealed.
Adam Levine previously had the title
People magazine really loves the coaches on The Voice. Although Shelton was ready to use his title against Levine, the former coach already had it in 2013.
“As a musician, you have fantasies that you want to win Grammys, but I didn’t really think that this was on the table,” he told the magazine at the time. “I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding, but they weren’t, so that’s cool.” Now it’s another year and someone new has been given the title.
Legend joked that he is learning Shelton’s sexy ways
Shelton took a moment during the Live Top 20 Eliminations to make an announcement. “Carson, as you may remember I was 2017 People’s magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive and because of that it is my duty to formally introduce the next Sexiest Man Alive,” he started.
“And it just so happens to be here tonight! Ladies and gentleman, the man, the myth, the legend, 2019 People magazine’s sexiest man alive John Legend,” he said then pointed that Legend. He presented him with jean shorts that had “VEGOTSMA” referring to his award wins including The Voice and Sexiest Man Alive.
Legend took the time to say a few words. “I want to thank People of course, People magazine. But mostly I want to thank Blake Shelton because I sat next to him for the last few months and I learned his sexy ways,” he joked.
The award winner added, “I observed every move he made, ever utterance that came from his mouth, and I think some of it rubbed off on me. And I think that has everything to do with why we’re here today.”
Carson Daly asked him what Chrissy Teigen thinks of his new title. He answered, “She’s proud of me. You know she makes fun of me almost all the time but she hasn’t even been snarky about this. She’s like legit proud of me. I finally impressed my wife.”
