But this year, the winner has divided social media. Country superstar and judge on 'The Voice,' Blake Sheldon, has taken the 2017 title, joining fellow judge Adam Levine as one of the sexiest men alive.
Many on social media seemed to applaud the decision...
Others? Well, they weren't so kind.

While others brought up some of Shelton's past tweets, which the singer had to apologize for last year.
In a 2011 tweet, Shelton begged the person in the next room to "learn some English so I would at least know what he's planning to bomb!!" In another tweet, he wrote about a "sick fantasy" he had about then 16-year-old actress Dakota Fanning.
What do you think of the decision?
