John Legend has an EGOT, but he’s adding another title to his resume: PEOPLE’S Sexiest Man Alive!

The multi-hyphenate performer has just been called as the 2019 Sexiest Person Alive. “I was excited, however I was a bit scared at the same time because it’s a good deal of pressure,” Legend tells PEOPLE. “Everyone’s going to be picking me apart to see if I am hot enough to carry this name. I am after Idris Elba, which is not fair and is not wonderful to me”

While Legend being recognized as the Sexiest Man Alive is enough cause for celebration, it also means we are in for some great viral memes from his wife, social media specialist Chrissy Teigen. And she is already killing it with her announcement via Twitter. “I have fulfilled my fantasy of getting boned @people’s sexiest man alive!!” Teigen composed before roasting Legend by adding that it’s”all downhill from here.”

Last year, because the star and executive producer of NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live, Legend earned his first Emmy in the Creative Arts Awards — adding him into the brief list of people who have an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. He’s presently a coach on The Voice and his deluxe album, A Famous Christmas, is available now.

Legend is currently among the ranks of all the previous Sexiest Men Alive, including last year’s honoree Elba. Previous title holders include Blake Shelton, Dwayne”The Rock” Johnson, David Beckham, Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine, and Channing Tatum.
