Maroon 5's Adam Levine rocks F1 crowd at Padang

The closing music act of the second day of the Formula 1 might be billed as Maroon 5, but it might as well be renamed The Adam Levine show.

The singer, popularity bolstered by his run as judge cum mentor on hit television show The Voice, pretty much dominated their 80-minute set at the massive Padang stage on Saturday night.

Looking lean in an all black get-up of wifebeaters and skinny jeans, the man did not have problems hitting the high notes on tunes such as She Will Be Loved and This Love.

What was surprising was that he was quite the guitar hero too, playing speedy solo runs on a selection of electric guitars and giving main guitarist James Valentine a run for his money.
