While speaking to PEOPLE about his new title, the father-of-two said:

"I was excited, but I was a little scared at the same time because it's a lot of pressure."

As revealed by Just Jared, the crown was officially handed over to Legend during the latest airing of "The Voice."

The torch was passed on by fellow coach Blake Shelton, who was the Sexiest Man Alive in 2017.

As expected, Chrissy had something to say about her husband bagging the title as she took to Twitter to share the news.

Legend's new title comes after he faced the heat for teaming up with Kelly Clarkson to record an updated version of Frank Loesser's "Baby It's Cold Outside."

According to USA Today, "The Voice" judges said they would update the lyrics of the song to remove lines that have not aged well in the aftermath of #MeToo.

Unfortunately, while that might seem like a commendable act, PopCulture reports that "The Talk" host Sharon Osbourne isn't buying into it as she describes the remake as "ridiculous."
