Adam Levine accepts Sexiest Man Alive on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

adam-levine-sexiest-man-alive-people.jpg "Jimmy Kimmel Live" had a special guest Wednesday (Nov. 20) -- the 2013 Sexiest Man Alive, "Voice" mentor and singer Adam Levine. He was presented with an award (a mirror on a pedestal) in front of a giant picture of his People magazine cover. And fighting the giggles, he had this to say:

Thank you. This is a tremendous honor. Unbelievable. A lot of people kind of trivialize this sort of thing. They think it's shallow, they think it's just a silly media stunt used to sell magazines and perpetuate the image of Hollywood being based on looks. And that's totally true. It is. But I'm completely cool with that.

This award actually means everything to me. Becoming this cool, confident and seductive has been quite a journey. In fact, I made a list of people I would like to thank:

First and foremost, my momther and father, both increadibly sexy. Especiall my dad, thanks man. I'd like to thank all my friends for constantly telling me how f***ing good I look. Thanks, boys. Ryan Gosling, thank you for turning this down constantly. That really helped my campaign. Of course, my predecessors -- George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, George Clooney, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, and George Clooney, of course. And finally, I'd like to thank -- surprisingly, I'd like to thank Nick Nolte, People's Sexiest Man Alive 1992. For making me feel like maybe, maybe this award wasn't as out of reach as I might have once thought.

And thank you Justin Timberlake and Thor, have fun sniffing my super-sexy armpit in the corner over there.

There's one more thing I would really ike to say -- People of America, great choice. And you're welcome.

Do you think Levine was a good choice?
