As we patiently wait for another season of “The Voice” on NBC, let’s look back now at the heat! Who are the 15 sexiest male artists in the history of the Emmy-winning reality program? While we love all the voices that have graced the stage, something we appreciate just as much as viewers is the charisma and confidence that makes each of the artists sexy in their own right.
Our contributing writer John Benutty offers his opinions and rankings in the photo gallery above. Do you agree or disagree with his choices? Who do you desperately want added to the list? Remember that all of our selections made it to the live playoffs, so don’t request someone from the earlier rounds.
Here’s just a taste of the Top 5 out of the 15 men in our gallery:
1. Bryan Bautista – Season 10
Nothing will ever drown out Bryan Bautista’s crushingly gorgeous rendition of “Promise” in both English and Spanish. This is the kind of guy you want singing to you on bended knee right before he proposes to you. He could sing a phone book to you and you’d melt at his feet—he’s that naturally sexy.
2. Nick Hagelin – Season 10
The closest thing The Voice has come to producing a Justin Timberlake-esque contestant, Nick Hagelin brings the pop vocalist swagger that JT popularized in the 2000s. It’s an easy one to call when you remember how defined his muscles were even through the sweaters and tuxedo jackets he often performed in.
3. Matt McAndrew – Season 7
Glasses. Tats. Tousled hair. Neckties. Collared-shirts buttoned to the top. Matt McAndrew brought everything to the table and showed that a guy can be both hip and nerdy at the same time and exude undeniable sex appeal in that contrast.
4. Jermaine Paul – Season 2
Jermaine Paul proves that fronting an upbeat group rendition of “I Want You Back” can be just as sexy as a deeply felt solo performance of “I Believe I Can Fly.” His unwavering sex appeal and undeniable talent helped him coast to victory in the second season.
5. Josh Gallagher – Season 11
Josh Gallagher has the best beard to ever grace The Voice stage—it’s full, thick and looks softer than a teddy bear. Pair it with his signature black baseball cap and a leather jacket and you got the best dive bar date you could ever dream about.
