The perpetually sexy Adam Levine accepted the 2013 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Band on behalf of Maroon 5.

“Thank you very much,” Adam said toward the start of the Wednesday night live show on CBS. “Everyone gets up here and thanks the fans, so it’s going to sound really boring when we thank the fans, but I will just say with music and being in a band, without fans we don’t have any career. And every single person — God Taylor Swift was super charming,” Adam said, referencing Taylor, who had just won for Favorite Country Artist. “I was trying to think of something to say and it’s not happening. ... She said,  ‘This always happens.’ That’s genius, by the way. Damn you, Swift! … But this is amazing. Thank you to anyone that ever bought a record or a T-shirt or a ticket — anything to support music in general.”

What always happens to Taylor, by the way, is having her award stolen by someone else. Olivia Munn had presented it to her and then wouldn’t let Taylor give her speech.

Anyway, Maroon 5 won over fellow nominees Green Day, Linkin Park, No Doubt, and Train. Congrats to The Voice coach and his awesome band!
