Watch Adam Levine Sing Nursery Rhymes As Michael Jackson & Eddie Vedder

You may know Adam Levine as the wisecracking judge on “The Voice” and the singer of Maroon 5’s annoyingly addictive “Moves Like Jagger.” But did you know he’s also an incredible song impressionist?

This week on “The Tonight Show,” host Jimmy Fallon dared Adam to play a game called “Wheel of Musical Impressions.” The game randomly assigned each of them a famous singer and a song, often a nursery rhyme, which they had to sing like that performer.

Adam did a spot-on impression of Frank Sinatra crooning the childhood classic, “Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes,” and of Eddie Vedder singing “The Muffin Man.” As in: “Do you know the Muffin Man, the Muffin Man, Muffin Man?” He also did a funny impression of Michael Jackson singing the “Sesame Street Theme.” (Watch below.)

Adam’s making the TV rounds to promote Maroon 5’s new album “V,” which came out Tuesday.  The album provides more of the band’s bouncy, falsetto pop (examples: singles “Maps” and “Animals”) along with a duet featuring Gwen Stefani (“My Heart is Open”).

Maroon 5 also announced its 2015 world tour with special guests MAGIC! (“Rude”) kicking off Feb. 16 in Dallas, Texas. Tickets go on sale Saturday, Sept. 13, on the Live Nation website. See dates following Jimmy and Adam’s video below.
