Tag: Adam Levine (1-10 of 15)
When The Voice first hit the reality-television scene years ago, there were a number of things that set it apart from other singing competitions — including the chemistry between coaches Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton. And now, after a season without Aguilera and Green, the original foursome is reuniting for season 5 … and it feels so good.
In NBC’s newest promo, Levine and Shelton are enjoying a fishing trip together, reminiscing about how much they miss the show’s original divas by singing “Reunited,” when Aguilera and her killer vocals emerge from a critter-filled forest, and Green, who has since become Poseidon, rises from the depths of the sea to join the performance. But how will they get everyone safely to set? Oh, that’s right! Carson Daly has a yacht! As Green put it, “Now that is ridiculous.”

The Voice may be getting more buzz this week for the controversial remarks of coach Adam Levine after two favored contestants were eliminated than for the show itself, but the NBC singing competition is actually about singing — and lots of it.
The Voice will be airing two extra-long episodes on June 10 and June 17, as the finalists edge toward the finish line. The two-hour shows will maintain the same format, with competitors singing for the judges and America voting for whom they want to keep. The final voting will take place June 17, and the winner will be announced the following night.
When it comes down to what sets The Voice apart from other singing competitions, all signs point to the four individuals sitting in the red swivel chairs. Between the competitive witty banter and the always-growing bromance between Adam and Blake, the coaches are what make watching the show so much fun. And working side-by-side comes with its perks. For one thing, they get to know one another pretty well. Example A: We have an exclusive video of the coaches doing their best impressions of one another. From finger-pointing to catchphrases and one mention of Usher being a ninja, it’s evident that these four people observe more than just the contestants.

When it came to this week’s episode of Community, the study group really felt it. Yes, viewers will get to see Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) and his Greendale pals as puppets in an episode that features the gang taking a balloon ride that crashes in the woods, where they happen upon a nice mountain man played by Jason Alexander.
Does the episode contain some Dean Pelton-led group therapy involving hand puppets? It does. Are there songs as well? Several. (Guest-star Sara Bareilles sings one, and Adam Levine co-wrote another.) Are you about to click on the video below to see the gang (as larger puppets) meet the possibly psychic, questionably coiffed mountain man? I think you know the answer to that. READ FULL STORY
The Manti Te’o hoax web just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
For the uninitiated, Manti Te’o is a star Notre Dame linebacker whose inspirational story of overcoming the death of his grandmother and girlfriend caught the media’s attention over the past college football season. But Deadspin published an article Wednesday that revealed that the girlfriend never existed in the first place. Central to the complex story is a guy named Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, who allegedly either conceived of the hoax with Te’o, or tricked Te’o into believing it.
But this isn’t Tuiasosopo’s only moment in the media spotlight. He also auditioned for the upcoming season of The Voice, EW has confirmed. Us Weekly broke the news, saying Tuiasosopo also spun quite a story for producers. READ FULL STORY

Ready for your mind to be blown? According to 23-year-old Cassadee Pope — newly crowned winner of NBC’s The Voice — the ever-eccentric Cee Lo Green is actually “really normal” in person. “You can sit down and have a conversation with him and it’s not weird,” she explained yesterday during a visit to EW’s offices in New York City. “He’s very intellectual.”
Cassadee’s insight about Cee Lo is much more surprising than her recent win, which seemed foretold as soon as her cover of Blake Shelton’s “Over You” shot to No. 1 on iTunes’s singles chart. While the singer says she never thought of herself as season 3′s frontrunner — “I knew that stuff can happen in this show and not be lasting” — she will admit that her iTunes sales made her “very optimistic” before Tuesday’s finale. And though Cassadee feels like her victory still hasn’t really sunk in, she also can’t wait to get back to the recording studio in January and start work on a debut album that combines pop, rock, and country — sort of like “an edgier Taylor Swift [record], not as country, with more mature lyrics and more challenging vocals and melodies.”
Intrigued? Read on for more about Cassadee’s time on the show, her relationship with mentor Blake Shelton — and her near miss with the Muppets.
With Cassadee Pope crowned season 3′s Voice victor, it’s out with the old and in with the new judges.
In a new promo for next season’s show, newcomers Shakira and Usher bond with returning judges Adam Levine and Blake Shelton (the only two judges with winning team members) over music, naturally. After the odd couple picks up the Latin songstress and R&B crooner, the four egos fight over control of the radio. Struck by “a total eclipse of the heart” (we’ve all been there …), they finally agree on a station.

Last season’s Voice champ Jermaine Paul will return to the singing competition this week to perform his debut single “I Believe in This Life,” EW has learned exclusively. Paul takes the stage again as part of the show’s first live results show, during which the Top 12 artists will be revealed. The results show will also feature Voice coach Adam Levine and his band Maroon 5 premiering their latest single “Daylight.”
The Voice‘s first live results show airs Thursday from 8-9 p.m. ET on NBC.
Reunited, and it feels so good!
On the first day of Season 3′s Blind Auditions, The Voice coaches Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton, and Christina Aguilera gathered backstage to discuss the season ahead. Social media correspondent Christina Milian got the ball rolling by asking the coaches to name who they see as their biggest competition — which led to Aguilera calling Levine “a sensitive, tender lover,” then imitating Shelton’s big-hearted Santa laugh, then giggling as Levine quoted a famously profane moment from Half Baked (NSFW).
Watch their chummy camaraderie below — before the claws come out on tonight’s episode:
