Photo Flash: First Look at Adam Levine in Rehearsals for SNL!
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."
This summer marked the release of Maroon 5's highly anticipated fourth studio album, "Overexposed." Recorded in Los Angeles, California, the album is a rich, pop-infused collection that Levine refers to as "our most diverse and poppiest album yet." A key track on the album is the stand out lead single "Payphone," featuring Wiz Khalifa, which immediately shot straight to No. 1 on both the Top 40 and Hot AC charts.
Levine will make his small-screen acting debut on "American Horror Story" this season, and has landed a lead role in the major motion picture film, "Can a Song Save Your Life?" from director John Carney.
