Bye bye, Blake Shelton – People Magazine finally made the right decision and named Idris Elba 2018’s Sexiest Man Alive.
1. Twitter knew that Idris was the obvious choice.
People Magazine: “our 2018 #SexiestManAlive is Idris Elba”

I mean, come on. Those eyes.
2. Honestly, the official award isn’t even necessary.

But I’m not complaining.
3. Oprah already knew the truth.
People: Idris Elba is the #SexiestManAlive

You get a picture of Idris Elba, and you get a picture of Idris Elba, and you get…
4. Pictures don’t lie.

Don’t worry, y’all, he’s just as beautiful IRL.
5. And neither does Charles Miner.

We’re all aware of it, Idris.
6. Last year’s choice is still a bit controversial.

No offense to Blake Shelton, but also… did I mention Idris’ eyes?
7. Some people felt vindicated.
Hi @people thank you for hearing my anger about Blake Shelton the Sexiest Potato Alive last year and making this right. Still waiting on Sterling for next year though… #IdrisElba https://t.co/IPIYpCuFru

We have been waiting a long, long time for this day.
8. His win is giving us hope.
Idris Elba rightfully winning sexiest man alive after Blake Shelton stole it last time gives me a lot of hope for this Election Day

Let’s finally start making the right choices, America.
9. It’s important to spread the news.
If you’re in line to vote, stay in line and make sure everyone around you knows Idris Elba is the sexiest man alive.
— R. Eric Thomas (@oureric) November 6, 2018
This is the information people need to get through this day.
10. We have entered a new age.
Our foe has been vanquished.
11. But remember guys, it’s not over ‘til it’s over.
The shit I’m seeing in my timeline about Idris Elba winning Sexiest Man Alive – I’ll say it AGAIN: Exit polls ARE NOT RESULTS. Elba’s people want us to be discouraged, to stay home. If you’re in line to vote, STAY THERE. It’s not over until every vote is counted.

But also, it’s over. It’s done. They made the right choice.
