Today People magazine named its annual pick for the “Sexiest Man Alive.”

This year’s selection: Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice co-host Adam Levine.

Their choice is usually based on buzz and career moves as much as sex appeal.

Still, in the nearly 30 years the honor has been bestowed, only one African-American (Denzel Washington in 1996) has been chosen.

TheGrio thinks this is a major oversight, so we’re making our own suggestions for contenders.

Check out our picks and let us know if we got it right or if there’s someone missing.
