AceShowbiz - It's not everyday that people get to watch Maroon 5 busking in a subway. Adam Levine and bandmate James Valentine joined Jimmy Fallon for an impromptu gig in the 50th Street Station in Manhattan. Donning hats, sunglasses and wigs, the trio performed a rendition of Queen's "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" and Maroon 5's "Sugar". The performance was a part of a segment on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon"
During the "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" performance, the trio managed to attract the crowd. However, it seemed the crowd did not realize that Adam, who masked his signature vocal style with a huskier and heavier tone, was performing in front of them. After they finished singing the track, the trio unveiled their identities as Jimmy said, "We're gonna do one more song for you guys. But first I'd just like to say hello, my name is Jimmy!"
The crowd immediately went wild, and passersby who were disinterested at first quickly dashed across the platform to watch the singers. The boys immediately launched into a low-key version of "Sugar", singing along with the crowd. "Your sugar/ Yes, please," Adam sang. "Won't you come and put it down on me?"
Maroon 5 was not the first artist who joined Fallon to busk in disguise. U2 and the comedian previously surprised commuters in New York City when they stripped off their own disguise and performed several of the band's hit songs, including "Desire".
Fallon also invited Miley Cyrus to busk in disguise together in the 47th St. subway station. The pair rocked cowboy hats and shades and even called each other with different names. However, Miley's fans immediately knew that it was her and quickly gathered around to watch the gig. After singing Dolly Parton's hit "Jolene", the songstress immediately launched into her own hit "Party in the U.S.A."
