Adam Levine SNL Host: Watch Levine's Saturday Night Live Opening Monologue

Adam Levine, Maroon 5's front man and coach of NBC's singing competition The Voice, debuted as host of Saturday Night Live.  

"I've been here with my band Maroon 5 before but this time it is just me," Levine said during his SNL opening monologue. "Like all successful singers I knew it would only be a matter of time before I would overreach and try acting," he added. 

The skit parodied Levine's own show by putting him in the place of the contestants and Andy Samberg, Cameron Diaz and Jerry Seinfield in the roles of the coaches/hosts.

"I've dealt with my fair share of singers turned actors," Samberg joked. "Timberlake or whatever," he added. 

Cameron Diaz, playing Christina Aguilera, advised, "if you want to succeed in comedy you have to check your pride at the door." She then suggested Levine to take his shirt off, to which last judge Jerry Seinfeld responded by saying that Levine should use his "Jewishness” instead.
