Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera performed the world premiere of their new song Moves Like Jagger live on the June 21st episode of NBC’s hit The Voice. To front his band, Adam Levine abandoned his jeans and t-shirt for a slick black suit that had him looking more like a GQ model than a rock star. The style worked for the sexy lyrics Adam was about to lay on us. Christina joined him onstage to add her soulful soprano wearing an oversized but very low cut white t-shirt that said “BOYS” . A funky blend of rock and pop, Moves Like Jagger shot to #1 on the iTunes Top Songs chart quickly after its debut.
The performances by the musician coaches Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton have been some of the highlights of The Voice. Showcasing their talents has added to the coaches credibility, which is sometimes lacking for judges in other competition shows. The collaboration between Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera created much anticipation because of their famous rivalry. The competition to recruit top artists such as Javier Colon and Beverly McClellan to Adam and Christina’s teams got cut-throat sometimes amongst the coaches. The debut performance of Moves Like Jagger showed Adam and Christina’s rivalry was all in good fun.
