The actual results of the first results show of The Voice Season 17 were overshadowed Tuesday by a "special announcement" from Blake Shelton, aka People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive of 2017. Blake revealed during the live telecast that “the man, the myth, the legend” — his fellow coach, John Legend – had just been named People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive of 2019. This makes John the third Voice panelist to receive the honor, following ex-coach Adam Levine in 2013 — but John is only one who’s now a “VEGOTSMA” recipient, having won a Voice trophy, an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, a Tony, and now the People title.
Giving a little acceptance speech for what Voice host Carson Daly this “passing of the sexy torch,” John chuckled: “I don't know what to say. I want to thank People, of course, 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. I observed every move he made, every 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.”
But there was an actual sweet moment, when John revealed that his sassy Twitter-comedienne wife, Chrissy Teigen, was genuinely happy about the VEGOTSMA news. “She's proud of me,” he said with a grin. “She makes fun of me all the time, but she hasn't even before snarky about this. She's legit proud of me. I finally impressed my wife.”
Chrissy of course took to Twitter immediately following the announcement, tweeting: "my secret is out. I have fulfilled my dream of having boned @people's sexiest man alive!! an honor!!!!!" — followed by a hilarious video of their kids Luna and Miles giving zero Fs, and then, finally, a typical Teigen tweet, stating: "I cannot WAIT for people to get mad about John being the sexiest man alive. it's my new Starbucks holiday cup."
