In celebration of Maroon 5's highly anticipated new album, V, which is slated for a September 2 release, the band put on an album release party with iHeartRadio and broadcasted it live on The CW performing hits, new and old. But for the first time ever, Maroon 5 performed one of their newest cuts from V, "It Was Always You" live.
Tonight (Tues, Aug. 26), the Los Angeles pop-rockers kicked off the iHeartRadio Album Release Party, hosted by The Voice's very own Christina Grimmie, with their reggae-infused infectious pop hit "One More Night" and lead quickly in to performing their top 10 single, "Maps." Following the performance, host Elvis Duran of KIIS-FM asked front man Adam Levine what the meaning behind the band's name really is. He was quick to reply: "You'd have to ask Billy Joel." (Rewind to the time when David Letterman harassed Levine on the subject). Surprise. The band took the stage to perform three more of their biggest hits "This Love", "Daylight", and "Love Somebody." Closing out the show, Maroon 5 debuted "It Was Always You" and concluded the event with an explosive performance of "Moves Like Jagger."
Fans were left questioning why the band didn't perform the latest V cut "Animals" or even perform their softer hit "She Will Be Loved"?
