Adam Levine | Coach
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Levine first connected with Maroon 5 members Jesse Carmichael and Mickey Madden while attending Brentwood School. The band has since gone on to have massive critical and commercial success worldwide. Capturing their first of three Grammy Awards as best new artist of 2005 and going on to sell more than 17 million albums, Maroon 5's releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries.
Maroon 5 won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album "Songs About Jane" and their double platinum album "It Won't Be Soon Before Long," which included hits "Makes Me Wonder" and "If I Never See Your Face Again."
In 2010, the band released their third studio album, "Hands All Over," which was certified platinum. The collection featured two hit singles, the Hot AC smash "Misery" and the anthemic "Moves Like Jagger," which climbed to the No. 1 spot on the Top 40, Hot AC and Billboard Hot 100 charts. The track has also become one of the best-selling singles of all time. Following the release of the album, both "Misery" and "Moves Like Jagger" received Grammy nominations.
Maroon 5's latest album "Overexposed" has quickly reinforced the group's status as a powerhouse in popular music with all of the collection's singles quickly rising to the top of the charts. The album's third single, "Daylight," claimed the No. 1 spot on both Top 40 and Hot AC radio charts. In the process, the band set a record for the most No. 1 singles (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart's 20-year history. Maroon 5's latest hit is "Love Somebody."
This summer, the band headlined the Honda Civic Tour alongside special guest Kelly Clarkson. The tour began in St. Louis on August 1 and continues through early October.
In addition to his work with Maroon 5, Levine will return for the fifth season as a coach on NBC's hit series "The Voice." He also made his small-screen acting debut last year on the second season of the hit FX miniseries "American Horror Story" and has landed a lead role in the feature film "Can a Song Save Your Life?" from director John Carney.
Levine has also collaborated with various musical acts, including Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Natasha Bedingfield, Slash, 50 Cent and Gym Class Heroes.
