Adam Levine

Invite received from on high, Adam Levine aims for the lead! Actually, at first, he wanted to be one of the judges for the tournament, but after he failed the interview by disapproving every contestant, we had to deny him such a position. Nonetheless, with his stubborn attitude and his Jagger-esque moves, he certainly isn’t messing around in, what he wishes was his, tournament.
