Adam Levine is getting lots of praise for his new competitive talent show, "Songland," which premiered mere days after the last episode of "The Voice."


Levine, 40, is the executive producer of the unique show that pairs unsung but talented songwriters with megastars, allowing the singers to give their rendition of songs with hopes of creating a hit.

"Songland" premiered on Tuesday night, and the reaction from fans was overwhelmingly positive. See their reactions below.

The first episode saw John Legend judge four writers' songs then decide which was the winning piece and perform his rendition of it. Here's his performance.

Born in the Bahamas, Tebby Burrows of Miami wrote the winning tune for the award-winning singer. Viewers described her version of the song as "good," but admitted that Legend's was "amazing."

The overall way the show is run stole the hearts of many who voiced their approval online. One person said she was "officially obsessed" with the song. She added that "the entire concept of the show and the execution of it is incredible."


Another person said she was so moved by the results that she "cried a little at the end." Legend's version of "We Need Love," written by Burrows, already looks to become a hit.


During the show, the writers work with top producers in the industry to reformulate their songs, make it the winning pick of the artists (in this case John Legend), and then produce it into an official track recording.

Fans were also impressed by the contestant's ability to deliver their songs while playing instruments. One person called it "an amazing skill to have."

The panel includes One Republic's lead singer Ryan Tedder, singer, songwriter, and producer Ester Dean, and songwriter Shane McAnally.


The artists set to deliver the revamped songs are John Legend, the Jonas Brothers, Meghan Trainor, Macklemore, Charlie Puth, Kelsea Ballerini, Will.I.Am, One Republic, Aloe Blacc, Old Dominion, and Leona Lewis.


When Levine announced he was leaving "The Voice" after season 16, fans' hearts were broken. The singer has been on the show since it's 2011 launch.

After the official announcement, Levine took to Instagram to share the reason he felt it was "time to move on." He expressed gratitude for his time there and thanked all the coaches he worked with.

The lengthy post was received with sadness by fans who did not believe it was possible to replace Levine. Some even said they might stop watching "The Voice" altogether.

Co-judges Legend, Kelly Clarkson, and Blake Shelton voiced their despair as well. Yet clearly, Levine had big plans and, so far, it looks like he will be successful in his new endeavor.
