There are the Grammys, Emmys, and Academy Awards that highlight talent of entertainers in today’s industry. But who needs prestigious honors like these? The most coveted award, perhaps, is being named People’s “Sexiest Man Alive.” 

The Maroon 5 singer told People: "As a musician, you have fantasies that you want to win Grammys, but I didn't really think that this was on the table. I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding, but they weren't, so that's cool."

The announcement was made on “The Voice” last night. Fans took to Twitter to congratulate the singer using hashtags like “#TeamSexy” to show their encouragement. 

So what won Levine the award? Was it his love for the plain white t-shirt? Or his array of tattoos? Or his dimples and 12-pack abs? Or his sensitive songs about heartbreak? 

We may never know what goes on behind closed doors at People Magazine, but we do know that Levine has many things going for him such as his engagement to Victoria Secret model Behati Prinsloo and his job as a judge on the hit show “The Voice.”  

Who’s laughing now Jane?
