Did Adam Levine Slam Adam Lambert on The Voice?
The Voice highlighted its final eight contestants last night.
But instead of focusing on the performances, Twitter was alive this morning with buzz over one of Adam Levine’s critiques.
As seen below, in praising Nakia for her cover of “Whataya Want From Me,” the Maroon 5 singer took a few seemingly random jabs at Adam Lambert.

“I’m not familiar with that song, but you just forced me to like it,” Levine said. “I’m pretty sure, although I’ve never heard that song before, that you probably sang it better than the person that sang it originally.”
Was Levine simply giving Nakia props? Perhaps. But his repeated references to being unfamiliar with the original song and artist have raised the ire of Lambert lovers.
In response, the former American Idol finalist took the high road (mostly) on Twitter:
“I think Adam might know who I am after this next album. Get ready for me Levine. Hahah… But for the record, Im def a Maroon 5 fan. Fans: there is NO reason to be angry. Thanks for being protective but it’s all good. ”
Levine isn’t the only judge on The Voice in hot water over a recent comment. Cee Lo Green took to Twitter himself yesterday to clarify a remark many considered to be anti-gay.
Back to Levine, though: Do you think he meant to diss Lambert?
