John Legend

John Legend is PEOPLE’s 2019 “Sexiest Man Alive.” The magazine announced that the “All of Me” singer would hold the title awarded last year to actor Idris Elba.

John Legend has been named the Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine this year. 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.

Shelton, who was named Sexiest Man Alive in 2017, announced Legend’s honor on “The Voice.” Legend told the magazine in an issue out Friday that receiving the title comes with some pressure to follow Idris Elba, who was last year’s winner. He joked it was, “not fair and is not nice to me!”
