Adam Levine duets with 'Voice' contestant

Adam Levine joins contestant on stage for a Maroon 5 song

It looks like Adam Levine has found his newest ploy in able to get contestants on his team.

On the season 10 premiere of NBC's reality show The Voice on Monday (Feb. 29), coach Adam Levine turned during a performance of Mike Schiavo's "Talking Body" (originally by pop musician Tove Lo). Schiavo, from Long Beach, California, mentioned during his time on stage that he was a huge fan of Maroon 5. Coach Christina Aguilera then pushed Levine to go up on stage and join Schiavo to sing the hit Maroon 5 single "She Will Be Loved." The two dueted on the 2004 single and raised many people's' suspicions on whether or not he would end up joining Levine's team.

Schiavo obviously chose to be on Team Adam, becoming the first to do so this season. Levine also recruited one other contestant on premiere night, that being John GIlman, a rockabilly musician from Bayville, New Jersey.

The Voice airs every Monday and Tuesday at 8:00/7:00p.m. CT only on NBC! Make sure to download the Official Voice App to create your own team and play along with the coaches. You can download it here: http://www.nbc.com/the-voice/app

Why you should support Pretty Sister


Zak Waters and co. are one of the best underground pop acts of 2016

Zak Waters is a musician, and one hell of a talented one, who I have been an avid fan of for almost three years now. And up until last year, he has been touring the nation as a solo act writing and producing infectious dance-pop hits. With his early releases such as The New Normal and Lip Service, he has proved that he is one of the most intriguing men in underground pop music today, clearly taking influence from 80s post-disco and 90's soul and R&B music.

Not too long back, accompanied with the release of his EP album, Now // Later, he showed off his eclectic sexy side and published one of the most persuasive covers of Ginuwine's 1996 single "Pony" the Internet has ever seen. Waters has also never failed to prove his live vocal ability by touring with other artists such as Betty Who over the past few years.

Taken from his biography, "Oozing with confidence, sex appeal, and a Jackson Five's worth of charismatic vocal ability, this flourishing young multi-talented singer and musician has perfected the pop formula with a new record of undeniably infectious dance hits. Blending the futuristic funk of Jamiroquai, the pulsing electro-beat of Daft Punk, and the classic groove of Earth, Wind, and Fire, Waters’ music instantly appeals to anyone with eardrums and a pulse."



Last year, Waters launched a new musical project entitled Pretty Sister, and now the project has released a brand new single entitled "Drive", an outrageously catchy pop tune that will remind you of the good old late 90's G-funk era. And "Drive" is just the start of a new beginning for Zak Waters and his crew as a new album and tour is on the way later this year.
