John thanked People for the honor and Blake for being a mentor.
‘I don’t know what to say,’ John said. ‘I want to thank People magazine, of course, but mostly I want to thank Blake Shelton, because I sat next to him for the last few months and, I learned his sexy ways.’
‘I observed every move he made, every utterance that came from his mouth, and I think some of it rubbed off on me, and I think that has everything to do with why we’re here today,’ he joked.
