Adam Levine, Jimmy Fallon Play ‘Wheel of Musical Impressions’


Adam Levine made a guest appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote Maroon 5‘s fifth studio album V on Tuesday, when he was challenged by the host to partake in a game called “Wheel of Musical Impressions.”

At the start of every round, each player was required to push a buzzer to activate a generator that matched a random singer with a random song title. The player must then do an impression of that randomly-selected artist while singing the mismatched track.

The 35-year-old, known for his competitive nature on NBC’s The Voice, was keen to take on Fallon in a musical impressions face-off, so he intiated the challenge with a Frank Sintra-impersonated rendition of “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes.” The late-night funny man followed-up by performing MAGIC!‘s “Rude” as folk-rock singer Bob Dylan.

Adam was also tasked to sing the Sesame Street theme song as Michael Jackson, and “The Muffin Man” as Eddie Vedder, while Fallon sang “Old McDonald Had a Farm” as Iggy Azalea.

Earlier in the day, Maroon 5 made their V album — the follow-up to 2012’s Overexposed — available worldwide, and Adam dialed in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest on his band’s behalf to announce their 2015 world tour.

“We started rehearsing, we started putting it together,” Adam said. “It’s kind of in its early stages. One thing I know for sure, and I think the band is all super pumped about it, is we’re going to go hard. We put on a big rock and roll concert and it’s very different from our albums. It’s very unleashed and crazy.”
