Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine has been named People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive.

The 34-year-old singer follows in the footsteps of 2012’s honoree, Magic Mike star Channing Tatum, and fended off competition from fellow hunky celebrities including Justin Timberlake, David Beckham and Idris Elba.

Levine was officially handed the title during Tuesday’s live episode of talent show “The Voice,” on which he serves as a judge and mentor.

In an accompanying article in the magazine, he says, “As a musician, you have fantasies that you want to win Grammys, but I didn’t really think that this was on the table. I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding, but they weren’t, so that’s cool.”

Prior to the announcement, the sexy singer told “Access Hollywood” that if he picked up the prize, he will be constantly teased by his pals.

He said, “There is no way that I’ll ever be able to live it down. I’m going to be getting pranked by everyone, if it does happen. I’m going to be getting pranked by every single person I know!”

It’s been a great 2013 Levine – he became engaged to model Behati Prinsloo in June, shot his first feature film and even launched his own men’s clothing line at American department store Kmart.

Also making the annual “hot list” are singers Luke Bryan, Bruno Mars, Pharrell Williams, actors Chris Pine and Justin Theroux, talk show host Jimmy Fallon, and Mia Farrow’s political journalist son, Ronan Farrow.
