Blake Shelton called it: Adam Levine is sexy -- and now, People Magazine is jumping aboard, naming the pop singer the Sexiest Man Alive. But that doesn't mean that Levine agrees that he's the most sizzling star. 

On Tuesday's (Nov. 19) episode of 'The Voice,' Carson Daly presented Levine with a copy of the magazine emblazoned with his photo and the sexy honor. The host then turned to Shelton to apologize, saying, "I'm sorry, Blake. It just didn't work for you, buddy."

Always quick to jumpstart the laughs, the country star retorted, "This is why I drink so much. He stole my thunder."

But in Levine's eyes, Shelton is the sexiest man alive. "You're the sexiest man in my book," he told the downtrodden hitmaker. In other words, he was saying, 'mine would be you.'

"I want you to know, I think you're beautiful for what's on the inside," Shelton said back to Levine, prompting the pop-rocker rush over to him with a ready hug and kiss on the forehead.

And so, it appears the bromance (although they want everyone to call it friendship instead) continues between Shelton and Levine. As long as they both shall live.
