A commendable, but unlikely duo, Britney Spears and Adam Lambert have been named Billboard's sexiest woman and man in music for 2012. The newly appointed X Factor USA judge and Glambert beat hundreds of musicians to the title in a reader poll measuring the hottest current artists. Trailing behind Britters (who earned a whopping 45 per cent of the vote) was Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Rihanna; while in the men's den, Glambert's 26 per cent lead was followed by Adam Levine, Justin Bieber and Enrique Iglesias.

It's quite the exclusive list, but considering Jon Bon Jovi is the only over 50 (he slides in at No. 7), we have to wonder how long the newbies can sustain their "hottest of the hot" status? Do the new breed of scintillating singers even hold a candle to the likes of Bon Jovi and the heartthrobs of yesteryear? Big hair, acid-wash jeans, the running man, spandex, David Hasselhoff ("Get back to your decade and stay there!") and computers that took cassettes -- what madness! The 1980s were the best of times and the worst of times, but boy did they produce a bunch of hotties. . .

Jon Bon Jovi, SEXIEST man alive, then Sebastian Bach, then Bret Michaels. Cutest ever would be my greatly missed Davy Jones of The Monkees from the 60's. Jon Bon Jovi just gets better with every passing day. His smile, just gets me everytime. WOW!! What wouldn't turn someone on about him. He is Sizzling Hot..then and now and always.

'Slippery When Wet' ... "best album of the decade"? In a decade which gave the world 'Thriller', 'Hounds of Love', 'So', 'Born in the USA', '1984', 'Graceland', 'Stop Making Sense', 'Appetite for Destruction', 'Synchronicity', 'Licensed to Ill', 'Disintegration', 'The Stone Roses', 'Straight Outta Compton', 'The Joshua Tree', 'Purple Rain', 'It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back' .... Not to mention all the lesser-known albums that I personally love.

No disrespect to Bon Jovi, but you have got to be effin' ****ng me.

Sting was born Gordon Sumner, not Summer. Not to be further confused with Andy Summers, his bandmate in The Police.
