Kelly Clarkson & Maroon 5 Visit Children’s Hospital


Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson are hard at work on their joint summer tour, but they took the time out of their busy schedules to do some good!

Clarkson and Adam Levine, along with band mate James Valentine, visited the Ryan Seacrest Foundation at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia on Wednesday.

The three of them happily posed in a pictures with the young children they visited, something which both the singers and children seemed so excited about!

While at the hospital, Clarkson and Levine answered questions from kids prior to their Wednesday night concert at the Susquehanna Bank Center.

Clarkson took to Twitter to express what a great time she had visiting the hospital. Ryan Seacrest also tweeted his deepest gratitude for their visit and posted the picture above.

It is always nice to see celebrities use their fame for something good!

Maroon 5 & Kelly Clarkson Team Up for Summer Tour


Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson will be teaming up this summer for the 2013 Honda Civic Tour!

Maroon 5 announced on Monday that they will be headlining the 2013 Honda Civic tour, which will kick off August 1 in St. Louis, and will feature Kelly Clarkson. Former The Voice contestant Tony Lucca will open on select dates.

Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine said in an interview:

“I think the live outdoor summer kind of vibe is always different than the indoor arena tour because there’s less emphasis on production and more on live music. It’s kind of the purist form of a tour ’cause there’s not too many bells and whistles.’”

The tour will have 31 dates before wrapping up on October 5 in San Diego.

After touring with Clarkson we can hope to hear some new music from Maroon 5! The band is currently working on a new album, which according to Levine has “gone maybe a little darker in sound,” and says it’s almost like their debut album Songs About Jane.

And of course, besides touring and working on a new album, Levine is busy with season four of The Voice.

Check out the tour dates for Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson’s 2013 Honda Civic Tour after the jump!

Adam Levine to Host ‘SNL’


Adam Levine fans — while you’re going through some Adam withdrawal until The Voice returns, you are in luck! He will be hosting Saturday Night Live on January 26!

Adam already appeared in an episode of SNL this season back in November when Maroon 5 was a musical guest, but now he will take his turn as host!

In a press event for The Voice a few months ago, Adam was asked whether he wanted to get into acting more and SNL was a suggestion (and a good one too, considering it is the network of The Voice). And now it is true! Adam has tested out his acting chops on American Horror Story.

The musical guest on the January 26th episode will be Kendrick Lamar, whose major-label debut album came out in October.

Who is excited to see Adam Levine host SNL???

55th Annual Grammy Nominations: Nominees, Snubs, and Performances

The Grammy Nominations Concert took place last night in Nashville! The nominees for some of the biggest categories were announced, performances and tributes took place, and country music was definitely spotlighted!

LL Cool J and Taylor Swift hosted the hour-long event live from Swift’s hometown of Nashville, Music City, and the show definitely highlighted the music that the city is most popular for — country!

Nominations were announced by country artists — Hunter Hayes who sang the nominations for Best Pop Vocals, Little Big Town who harmonized The Beatles’ “Yesterday”, Chris Young, and Sheryl Crow. Performances also did not lack in the country area, with performances by Luke Bryan and a tribute performance to Johnny Cash by Dierks Bentley and The Band Perry. Also performing last night was Maroon 5, Ne-Yo, The Who and fun.

As for the nominees, there was a six-way tie for most nominations– fun., Jay-Z, Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, Mumford & Sons, Frank Ocean, and Kanye West all received six nominations each.

Some nominations I was happy to see — Kelly Clarkson and Florence + The Machine. They are two brilliantly talented women whose talents should be recognized!

Who was snubbed? Carly Rae Jepsen, Justin Bieber, Ellie Goulding, Rihanna, and Usher.

Overall, I think this is one of the best Grammy nominations in years! Check out the list of all the nominees HERE! The Grammys will air live on CBS on February 10 at 8 pm ET.

Tony Lucca Signs with Adam Levine’s Label

Tony Lucca, season two contestant of The Voice and former Mickey Mouse Club member, has signed a deal with his former Voice coach Adam Levine’s 222 Records.

Lucca plans to start recording late this year. Lucca and Levine will be back at work together once again! Lucca made it far in season two of The Voice, ending in third place and winning viewers (and the coaches) over with his covers of Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” and Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time.”

I think this is exactly what Lucca needs to get that “big break” he has definitely been striving for all of his life. He started off his career singing alongside Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, and Justin Timberlake on Disney’s The Mickey Mouse Club. As far as his music career post Mickey Mouse Club, he has released four full-length albums on his own.

Being a part of 222 Records, he will be joining a great roster of artists including Glee and Broadway star Matthew Morrison.

Tony has been busy touring, but in between shows he has made his way to Los Angeles and Nashville to meet with potential songwriting partners.

Do you think this will be Tony Lucca’s big break???

Exclusive Intimate Evening with Maroon 5′s Adam Levine and James Valentine

I was one of the lucky 25 people to get to sit inches away from Maroon 5′s Adam Levine and James Valentine last night, listening to them answer fan questions and premiere their new music video on MTV First.

First ladies, yes Adam Levine is as sexy, if not more so, in person!

The guys were visiting MTV to talk about their new album, Overexposed, which hit stores today! They also premiered their latest music video for the song “One More Night,” which was directed by Pete Berg (Friday Night Lights) and starred Minka Kelly. For the music video, Adam had to learn to box, something which he said he loved, but wasn’t easy since he is a “wimp.”

After premiering the video for “One More Night,” the interview continued onto MTV.com where the guys took questions from Twitter and from the audience. Things we learned about Adam last night– he can’t cook, he loves supermarket-made sushi, he almost died from a workout gone wrong, and he thinks it’s okay to lie if the situation calls for it, for example telling your girl she looks good when she really doesn’t. Hmmm, I don’t know about that one Adam!

Overall it was a fun, carefree night and having to stare at Adam Levine for an hour isn’t such a terrible job! PS- does anyone else think that if James Valentine cut his hair he would be Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s twin???

New Maroon 5 Single: “One More Night” [LISTEN HERE]

After the success of their Wiz Khalifa-featured first single, “Payphone,” off of their upcoming album Overexposed, Maroon 5 has released their next single — “One More Night.”

Will “One More Night” fare as well as “Payphone” on the music charts? Only time will tell, but from one listen of the new single I was an instant fan!

“One More Night” has a reggae feel to it throughout, mixed with the usual “poppy” feel Maroon 5 is known for. The main melodic is very catchy and goes along with the reggae synth sound, with it’s “oohs.” While the song sounds a little of out character for the band, it also sounds somewhat in character for them as well.

“One More Night” was executive produced by Max Martin and talks about not being able to resist a girl.

Overexposed is set for a June 26 release. After hearing “One More Night” I am definitely excited to hear that else they have in store for us on the new album!

Listen to “One More Night” after the jump! What do you think?

New Julia Sinclair Cover: Maroon 5 and Wiz Khalifa’s “Payphone”

This has to be one of my favorite Julia Sinclair covers!

Every week Julia does a new cover and this week she picked “Payphone,” the new track from Maroon 5 and Wiz Khalifa. I love it!

She spent a rainy afternoon with her guitar and filmed this cover and it sounds awesome. Although it’s been a week since the original of this track premiered I must admit I actually listened to this version before the original, so I’m loving this version as its own.

Take a listen below!

You can also catch Julia every Tuesday performing live on stageit.com/juliasinclair
