Happy Birthday, Adam Levine!

The Maroon 5 frontman has had quite the stellar year: He got married to Behati Prinsloo, Maroon 5 dropped their album V, he cracked us up on The Voice, and he even tried his hand at acting, with a role as a rock star in the movie Begin Again.

Below, check out just a few of his musical highlights from the past year.

5. Musical Impressions
Anyone who watches The Voice knows that the former Sexiest Man Alive is sometimes a bit of a dorky goof, so it wasn't really a surprise to learn that he clearly practices impressions in his free time. 

4. "Sugar" video
Yes, eventually it came out that the whole set-up was pretty staged, but it's still a fun music video concept. 

3. The Voice Audition
Levine left his coaching chair to sing "Tiny Dancer" during his "blind audition" for the show this past season. Even sometimes-nemesis Christina Aguilera had to spin around for Levine's take on Elton John

2. "Animals" music video
Too bad True Blood is over: A blood-soaked Levine was a perfect audition. 

1. "Lost Stars"
His performance of this original song from Begin Again was memorable enough for the tune to be nominated for the Oscar for Best Original Song; Levine also performed at the ceremony in February 2015.
