Four famous musicians search for the best voices in America and will mentor these singers to become artists. America will decide which singer will be worthy of the grand prize.
As the frontman of Grammy Award-winning recording group Maroon 5, Levine has left an indelible mark on popular music. The primary songwriter for the band and a guitar player, Levine and his talents give Maroon 5 its signature sound. His heartfelt ballads and pop anthems have become part of the fabric of today's pop music scene. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Levine first connected with Maroon 5 members Jesse Carmichael and Mickey Madden while attending Brentwood School in Los Angeles. 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 worldwide, Maroon 5's releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries. Maroon 5's latest album "V," debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200 and features the hit singles "Maps," "Animals" and "Sugar," all of which hit No. 1 on the Top 40. The music video for the chart-topping and Grammy-nominated single "Sugar" has logged nearly 1 billion views to date. The band 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 such as "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 including 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 "Overexposed" quickly reinforced the group's status as a powerhouse in popular music with all of the collection's singles rising to the top of the charts. The third single off of the album, "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's (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart's 20-year history. Maroon 5 wrapped one of the highest-grossing tours of 2013, in conjunction with the album, with over $50 million in ticket sales. In addition to his work with Maroon 5, Levine has a new song, "Go Now," featured on the soundtrack for the movie "Sing Street," directed by John Carney. Levine worked with the director on his last film, "Begin Again." That film's theme song, "Lost Stars," was also performed by Levine in the movie and earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song. The track also is featured on the soundtrack to the film, which was the first release for 222 Records, Levine's label in partnership with Interscope. Levine has been selected by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce as a member of the Hollywood Walk of Fame class of 2016 and will have a star installed in his honor. Most recently, he has signed on to appear in the movie "The Clapper," alongside Ed Helms and Amanda Seyfried, and "Fun Mom Dinner," with Molly Shannon and Toni Collette.
