People magazine has named singer and actor John Legend "sexiest man alive".

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

"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!"

Legend, currently a coach on American television talent series The Voice, won the first of 10 Grammys for his 2004 debut album Get Lifted and its hit ballad Ordinary People. He also took home an Oscar for the song Glory for the movie Selma, and an Emmy for producing the 2018 television adaptation of Jesus Christ Superstar.

Other celebrities who've made it to the esteemed list in recent years are Blake Shelton, Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine, George Clooney and Channing Tatum.
