In addition to an appearance by Dr. Evil, a performance by Carly Rae Jepsen and interviews with Sam Heughan and Rachel Maddow, Monday’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” featured a big pop culture announcement.
Jimmy Fallon revealed People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” for 2018.
The honoree is immensely popular actor Idris Elba. Elba, 46, succeeds previous winner Blake Shelton.
Along with briefly (and graciously) discussing the honor, Elba offered a “smolder” and “shy smile” for “The Tonight Show” viewers.
In conjunction with the “Fallon” announcement, PEOPLE posted a web version of its cover story on this year’s Sexiest Man Alive.
