Shelton cracked that his first reaction was "that y'all must be running out of people". The magazine named the Pearson men of NBC's "This is Us" as sexiest cast: Sterling K. Brown, who plays Randall; Milo Ventimiglia, who plays Jack; and Justin Hartley, who plays Kevin. There was another bonus to accepting the title, Shelton added: being able to lord it over the head of his fellow judge on The Voice, Adam Levine.

"This is a great source of pride and I win", he said.

She went on to say that Shelton's "doesn't even know how cute he is".

Shelton was formerly married to country singer Miranda Lambert and has been dating No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani for two years. "People say I haven't changed since before I made it. I'm not the only one that thinks it!"
