Matt Lauer and Adam Levine on 'Today'Adam Levine's television career began with a guest spot on 'Saturday Night Live,' and continued with a judging spot on 'The Voice.' Now the Maroon 5 lead singer is adding the "executive producer" title to his TV resume. On 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) Levine talked about a new sitcom pilot he's working on for NBC, and performed with Maroon 5.

Though he was initially reluctant to share details, Matt Lauer got Levine confirm that the pilot had been bought by NBC, and that the show will be set in a karaoke bar. Will Levine appear in the show? "Perhaps," said Levine. "I've not decided yet, Matt Lauer."

Adam Levin & Maroon 5, 'America's Got Talent'Adam Levine took his act straight from 'The Voice' stage and onto 'America's Got Talent' (Wed., 9PM ET on NBC) when he and Maroon 5 entertained the crowd with their new single 'Moves Like Jagger.' It was a rock-solid performance, and a great way to remind people of Levine and 'The Voice.'

To keep the crowd excited on this tense elimination night, Jason Derulo gave the crowd a medley of his singles, but it was all just a distraction from the reality of the evening.

Of twelve acts, only four would move on to the semifinals.

So, will karaoke be 2012's big craze?

Adam Levine Sees Embarrassing Footage of His First Public Performance (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jun 14th 2011 7:05AM
Adam LevineOn 'The Voice' Adam Levine's job is to sit in judgment on many young aspiring singers, trampling on some dreams, and making others come true. When he was younger, TV talent shows were thin on the ground, so how did the Maroon 5 frontman get his start in the business?

Luckily for us, 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) host Jay Leno unearthed footage of Levine's first public performance and we got to watch it along with Levine. Who didn't seem that happy to see it.

Levine said that he was a really shy kid and only came out of his shell once he started performing at a local place called 'Closet Stars.' This, said Levine, was a place where would-be rock stars were dressed up in in "all kinds of cool stuff like sunglasses" before coming out onstage to lip-synch the big hits of the day.

And that's when Leno unleashed the footage. As Levine said "Are you kidding?" we got to see his much younger self working through that shyness barrier by lip-synching and dancing to Bobby Brown's 1988 mega-hit, 'Don't Be Cruel.'

Former 'Idol' Contestant Frenchie Davis Tries to Win Us Back on 'The Voice' (VIDEO)

Frenchie Davis, 'The Voice'Frenchie Davis stole the hearts of America early in the second season of 'American Idol,' but later found herself disqualified for topless photos she had taken earlier in her career. That didn't sit well with 'Idol's family-friendly image. Now, eight years later Davis returned to a new singing competition series, 'The Voice' (Tue., 9PM ET on NBC).

In this premiere episode, it's the Blind Auditions. This means the coaches can't see who's singing and have to decide whether or not they want to work with them toward winning the show based on their voice alone.

This almost proved a double-edged sword for Davis as being recognized might have helped her get more support from the coaches.

Chelsea Handler Receives a Very Dirty Love Note From a GuestMaroon 5 singer Adam Levine was the guest on the new 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!). And for once, a male celebrity guest showed some restraint, and didn't hit on host Chelsea Handler. Instead, Levine read a note from another celebrity ... who was hitting on Chelsea. Excellent! Way to mix things up!

Somehow or other, Adam had obtained the "guest book," which is signed by the people who appear on the talk show. He then decided to read from it. "I have selected something that I'd like to share with the audience," he said. Uh-oh. Brace yourselves.

Is it better for Blake that he didn't win Idol?

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted May 28th 2007 3:03PM
Blake LewisI was never a Blake fan, but as the end of American Idol season six drew near, I came to admire his attitude even more than his singing or beatboxing skills. I like that Blake never talked back to the judges in a snotty, defensive manner. I like that he took his lumps with a smile and a shrug. I like that he didn't cry "foul" when forced to sing the generic "This Is My Now."

In the age of reality TV where everyone wants to win at any cost, it was nice to witness a guy who actually seemed to be enjoying the experience itself.

In a conference call with reporters, Blake said, "I honestly didn't care one bit [about] winning or losing, because I call myself a winner just by getting into the top 10."

Saturday Night Live: Zach Braff/Maroon 5 (season finale) - VIDEOS

by Annie Wu, posted May 20th 2007 12:25PM
Braff and Maroon 5(S32E20) I'm not a crazed Zach Braff fan, but I'm familiar enough with his work on Scrubs and Garden State. As the weird fantasy sequences in Scrubs have shown, Braff and the bizarre totally work. So, I was disappointed that he didn't play any outrageous characters in this episode. He was always playing some version of himself. Even in the "Prom Committee" sketch, when he had the chance to portray some completely out-there character, he played the Garden State kid with the Natalie Portman headphones. Oh, well. At least he didn't blatantly stare at the cue cards all night.

Also, there was so much Maya Rudolph love in this episode, it sort of felt like she was hosting. I wonder if this is a sign that she's planning on leaving after this season? This then leads me to wonder if Darrell Hammond, who only appeared two or three times in this episode, is ever going to leave.

Did Ryan accidentally announce Melinda's elimination too early on Idol's results show?

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted May 18th 2007 1:22PM
Melinda Doolittle Goes HomeOn Wednesday night, many of us were shocked to see "resident pro" Melinda Doolittle get booted from American Idol. But more shocking than that, many of us swore we heard Ryan Seacrest mistakenly announce her upcoming ouster prematurely.

Here's what happened. After Elliott Yamin performed, and before a commercial break Ryan said, "We've got more music coming up live from Maroon 5. Plus, more emotional results and Melinda Doolittle goes home."

Zach Braff to host season finale of Saturday Night Live

by Joel Keller, posted May 11th 2007 12:23PM
Zach BraffWith a new Scrubs contract in hand and a movie to promote, you know that Zach Braff will be on the interview circuit very soon. But part of that circuit will be hosting the season finale of Saturday Night Live on May 19, with musical guest Maroon 5.

Braff is going to be promoting his movie The Ex, which co-stars Jason Bateman, Amanda Peet, and SNL cast member Amy Poehler (she's been in a lot of movies lately, hasn't she?). It's the first time Braff has hosted SNL, and I think he'll do well. As all Scrubs fans know, he's good at goofy physical comedy, and I don't think he'll be fazed by the live setting, the cue cards, and everything else that trip up other hosts. By then, he should also know the fate of Scrubs, so we may see a very happy Zach on stage next week.
