After much rumored speculation, People magazine named Adam Levine the Sexiest Man Alive, announcing the news on last night’s episode of The Voice. It’s been a busy year for the Voice’s bad boy judge – an engagement to girlfriend Behati Prinsloo, a clothing line, a hosting gig on SNL, and a role in his first feature film. And though Maroon 5 has only released one song in 2013 (“Love Somebody”), hits like “Payphone,” “One More Night,” and “Moves Like Jagger” are receiving more radio play than ever.
It’s hard to nail down everything that is sexy about Adam Levine. Is it the tattoos? The million dollar smile? The dorky sense-of-humor? The fact that he’s, well, something of a douche (yes even that can be sexy). Ok, fine. It’s all of it. And since we can’t get enough of People’s Sexiest, we’ve decided to remind you how Adam Levine wound up on top.
When he winked with only his eyebrow.
When he was taken aback by his own sexiness.
When he flirted with me in front of everyone and I was like “Adam, stop it, people are watching.”
When he worked his tongue like this.
When he had to brush those haters off.
When he giggled.
When he cursed while doing a body roll.
When he said “I love you” with the most sincerity humanly possible.
When he was shy in a cardigan.
When he brought me two dozen roses to say he’s “Sorry.”
When he laughed really hard in HD.
When he introduced the world to his new puppy, Charlie.
When he could no longer hold back how he felt about me.
When his hand when limp and so did my body.
When he wore a toboggan and his dog was adorable.
When he was on season two of American Horror Story and the entire country went into a state of complete shock.
When he invited you to come get it with this hand gesture.
When he was a momma’s boy.
When he took an insult in the most sexy way possible.
When we had no idea what he said on SNL because he was shirtless.
When he pretended to be a rabbit and we all simultaneously wished we were heads of lettuce.
When he did “The Train.”
When he lived for the applause.
When he stared into the distance, naked, and I stopped breathing.
Thank you People Magazine, for honoring the sexy that is Adam Levine.
