Congratulations, Blake Shelton -- you're People's "Sexiest Man Alive"! But Twitter is just a wee bit divided over the choice.

"The Voice" coach and Gwen Stefani's beau Shelton was handed the honors by People this year, succeeding last year's honoree Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Twitter users, as they tend to do, fired up their accounts to weigh in on Shelton's honor, with a number of them expressing deep disappointment.

Among the naysayers: Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, who lamented, "Nursing a DEEP hurt today. Was passed over by @people magazine again for sexiest man alive honor that went to @blakeshelton . I sent in photos and everything. Oh well there's next year. "

Huckabee wasn't alone in questioning the choice.

"Donald Trump is presidential; Jeff Sessions is honest; Roy Moore is a Christian; and Blake Shelton is the "Sexiest Man Alive." It's like America has totally stopped trying," another Twitter user wrote.

"Somebody tell me how Blake Shelton won #SexiestManAlive when there are people like Charlie Hunnam out there?!?!" another critic asked.

"Blake Shelton is not the sexiest man alive. Sorry, People," read another response.

"How can you trust straight people when they chose Blake Shelton as the sexiest among them," went another quizzical reaction to the choice.
