Week after week, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine urges Americans to vote for the contestants he mentors on NBC's The Voice. But on Tuesday night's top 8 results show, viewers unexpectedly heard him proclaim, "I hate this country."
Levine uttered the brief comment — which you can listen to at the 1:14 mark in the video, below, from the show's official YouTube page — just moments before America's votes eliminated his early frontrunners Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons. Seconds earlier, his other finalist Amber Carrington was spared. The moment appears to be the result of a hot mic.
