Those who were fans of “The Voice” this past season were the first to see two of the judges, Adam Levine (Maroon 5) and Christina Aguilera, perform the song “Moves Like Jagger,” for the very first time. If you didn’t catch the show or you’re just dying to see the two perform it together again, now you can after the video for the hit song was released yesterday. But you can expect something completely different from that tame, original performance in which Christina wore an oversized T-shirt, and Adam a classy suit. In the video, Christina has classed it up with an elegant kimono-style top and contrasting leggings; and Adam’s left it pretty much as bare as possible.
In the sexy song, it’s mostly Levine that sings along to the upbeat tempo about moving, acting, and singing like Jagger, and his moves in the video follow suit. Meanwhile behind him, girls dance scantily clad, barely dressed, and in some cases, not covered at all. Christina shows up about three minutes in, bringing her soulful notes and dancing in front of a British flag. But that’s not the only tribute shown to the rock icon for who the song is named. The video opens with a brief interview clip of Jagger only two years into his career, and clips of Jagger and his famous moves are shown throughout the entire video.
At the end of it all, Adam (with his shirt,) Christina, the band, and the dancers all end up on-stage dancing out their last few Jagger-like moves against the backdrop of an American flag. You can check out the full video below, but remember that it does include some nudity and explicit lyrics so don’t watch it at work, or while the kids are around.
