Levine hosts this Saturday's episode with hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar as the musical guest.
As the front man of Grammy Award-winning recording group Maroon 5, Adam Levine
has left an indelible mark on popular music. The primary songwriter for the band and a guitar player, Levine's talents give Maroon 5 their Signature Sound
. 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 followed it up with the double platinum album, "It Won't Be Soon Before Long," which included hits like "Makes Me Wonder" and "If I Never See Your Face Again."
In September 2010, the band released their third studio album, "Hands All Over" that also recently went platinum. The album featured two hit singles including the Hot AC SMASH "Misery" and the anthemic "Moves Like Jagger," which climbed to the No. 1 spot on the Top 40 and Hot AC charts and also claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Both singles received GRAMMY Award nominations in the category of "Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals," marking the group's eighth Grammy nomination overall and fifth in that category. With the success of "Moves Like Jagger" on the Hot 100 chart, Maroon 5 frontman Levine became the first artist in the chart's 53-year history to reach No. 1 as part of a group and enter the Top 10 at the same time as a soloist, as he is also featured on Gym Class Heroes' "Stereo Hearts."
