Why not just ask who's song it was, before opening mouth & inserting foot?

Nakia was great. I think he's a fantastic performer. As for Levine to borrow Tina Fey's line "he's too self absorbed to be intentionally mean." But the way Levine phrased it was disrespectful. Intentional or not.

I have heard this song before, but I didn't know who sang it until reading this article, so no not everyone knows Artists or their music.

How can Levine assume that Nakia probably sang the song better than the original artist while 'claiming' he isn't familiar with the original song? Doesn't make sense. His comments do not lend him any credibility. Levine should explain his...*ahem*...logic!

Come on guys, everyone knows Adam Lambert. I'm 68 years old, love his music, even went to a concert. Wake up!

Whats the big Deal? I mean not everybody in this world has to know every song or every artist, Geez and just like someone said it here they tour to much they dont know anything about a new artist or their music. Btw Nakia did a really good job, But I have to say it Vicci martinez stole the show last night.!

Adam Lambert toured, also, but he knows levine. Have to be honest, I didn't know who levine was until he sang with Maroon 5. I remember them from VH1. I still think he knows Adam Lambert.You'd have to be under a rock in the past two years not to have heard of him. Whatever levine said won't hurt Adam any.

I am beginning to believe that Adam Levine really had never listened to the top five Grammy nominated vocal performances of the year. Sad really. Well, he knows who Adam Lambert is now.

I think people have to stop making every remark that a person says bother them I dont understand why people have to be so sensitive, Its a tv show with judges that have to try to be partial to their contestants and make them feel that their as good if not better then the original artist. Adam Levine did not say anything wrong and I hope he does not apologize for his comments. Everyone has to remember most of these judges tour so much through the year they dont have time to watch tv or keep up with the latest newest artists, grow up people!!

It wasn't really a slam. I don't think he should have said that Nakia sand it better than the original if you havnt heard the original but I don't think levine meant anything by it. Although I am surprised he hadn't heard the song.
