To hear Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine tell it, NBC's upcoming singing competition The Voice will be nothing like American Idol.
For one thing, there will be no mean-spirited judges. For another, there will be no "judges."
"I think it's less about being judgmental and more about helping the singers out," he said Tuesday during a press conference. "That's kind of a dirty word, here on The Voice... Judge. Judging."
