Levine will perform 'Lost Stars' at the Oscars
Although the 35-year-old singer has had a hugely successful music career, singing at the prestigious award ceremony may be his biggest achievement yet, especially since he even thinks this "might be even better than being nominated!"
That's not the point of the show, says Williams.
The Voice has taken more than a couple hits of criticism recently: it’s dull, it’s repetitive, it just can’t keep up in the ratings race. One of the biggest is that so far, NBC’s answer to American Idol has failed to produce launch a lasting career in music for any of its winners. But here’s what Pharrell Williams, now in his second season as a panellist on the popular (sort of) format had to say to the critics – aka a group of journalists at the show’s Season 8 press conference.
“I don’t understand why we have these interviews, and people ask the same question every time,” Williams said via The Wrap. And that wasn’t where the rant ended.

The latest round of "The Voice" auditions just gave us more reasons to love Pharrell Williams. Also Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Adam Levine. But mostly Pharrell.
It’s settled, Pharrell Williams is the best The Voice judge. Sorry, everyone else, your efforts were valiant, but the contest is now closed. Pharrell won us all over with his efforts to win contestants for his team. He did everything from drawing to dropping down to his knees to throwing out some expert sales pitches.
The puppy dog eyes never fail.
Straight off the bat, he tried to woo Katriz Trinidad, a 15-year-old musical powerhouse from San Diego. “I never thought that I would find something I usually look for for my own label," he said convincingly. "I have been dreaming about an artist like you for my entire career.”
What are the best songs from Maroon 5's new album, V?
Whether on the television or in your speakerbox, Adam Levine is pretty much everywhere. He’s been a coach on the singing competition show The Voice for years, and his band Maroon 5 only seems to be getting bigger - but with their new album, V, does it give them the firepower needed in order to create another ‘Moves Like Jagger’?
Maroon 5 released their new album, V, on September 2
‘Jagger,’ released in 2011, is far and away Maroon 5’s biggest hit to date, and it’s clear that the group has been trying to find the magic to make an equally successful part two ever since. For the most part, they’ve gotten close, but it just hasn’t been enough. ‘Jagger’ reached number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 and the Mainstream Top 40, with sales that have accumulated over six million units. Who wouldn’t want to re-create those numbers?! Maroon 5’s 2012 record, Overexposed, took the band into a brand new pop-heavy realm that relied strictly on those ‘Jagger’ like tunes, but they always fell short. ‘Payphone’ was the album’s lead single and peaked at number two, while ‘One More Night’ only lasted a little while at number one.
