John Legend Is PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive 2019

People magazine continues to ride a fine line by naming their “Sexiest Man” each year and here we are again.

John Legend, who is one of only a few people to EGOT, has been given the honor.  Many, like myself, consider him more adorable than sexy, but that’s maybe nitpicking.  Most were just glad it wasn’t Blake Shelton again.

“I was excited, but I was a little scared at the same time because it’s a lot of pressure,” the entertainer tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “Everyone’s going to be picking me apart to see if I’m sexy enough to hold this title. I’m [also] following Idris Elba, which is not fair and is not nice to me!”
