After viewing the on-set photos and getting a sneak peek at Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera’s “Moves Like Jagger” video, the highly anticipated clip is finally here. The Jonas Akerlund-directed vid, which premiered on E!, features a bunch of Jagger wannabes strutting their stuff for the cameras, while the original owner of those moves is seen in archival footage. Also: Adam Levine wears a whole lot of ink on his upper torso instead of a shirt, and Christina Aguilera applies an entire bottle of mascara around her eyes. Watch the two Voice coaches show off their moves below!

The video kicks off with a crew assembling equipment as a slew of extras prepare for their performance, all in an elaborate tribute to the Rolling Stones’ legendary frontman. Jagger appears first in a vintage interview from his early days, responding to a reporter’s question about how long he plans to make music. “I don’t know. I never thought I’d be doing it for two years even,” he says. As the video shows, of course, his impact has lasted far longer than that (though it’s hard to understand why Levine, and several extras, sport that “Who the f*** is Mick Jagger?” t-shirts).

Maroon 5 feat. Christina Aguilera – “Moves Like Jagger”

After all that, we’re not entirely sure that setting up a Levine-Jagger comparison was the right move (at least Aguilera can say she held her own while performing with the Stones during the filming of Martin Scorsese’s 2008 documentary Shine A Light). Let us know if “Moves Like Jagger” provided you any satisfaction on Facebook, Twitter or in the comments below.

  1. This is certainly a Maroon 5 video cause Christina could do better, this video changed scenes too much made the whole thing feel cheap. Its a terrific song but this video doesn’t do it any favors and why were Adam and Christina so far apart, tension much?

    Spoiler alert: Yeah there’s nothing to see here cept half a minute of Christina being flawless.

    so underwhelming especially because all of the promo they did with the sneak peeks and the mick jagger hubbub. i got dizzy, brb vomiting

  3. issa

  4. Why

    Is Mick Jagger known for ass shaking and looking like an idiot? i don’t think it’s much of a tribute here.

    This is the 2nd place I’ve heard of this song and I must say I’m a huge fan of Maroon 5 because I love the way they play the instruments, so I like ALL, literally, of their songs. So it was no surprise that I instantly fell in love with this song; and what I don’t understand is the sudden obsession with Mick Jagger in current pop hits: For example, a lyric line from Ke$ha’s Tik Tok is “The dudes are lining up, ’cause they hear we’ve got swagger, but we kick ‘em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger”, and now this whole song about Jagger comes out? …. Clueless.. Anyway, something else I wanna throw in: His moves are sexier than Mick Jagger’s :3 But I don’t remember Jagger being famous for those kind of moves… X_X’

  7. i love this song because my sister is a big fan of maroon 5,i can understand lyrics or the words that has written.cristina A. age did not affect to her voice but the singer in maroon 5 is so sexy so the muslims were so very angry with him and congratulations.

    Not surprised Skippy was cut. His weak kickoffs were tolerable as long as he was accurate on fg attempts. Whatever happened to Vanderjack, by the way? Not sure Suisam is the answer…Heinz a super tough venue. We’ll see. Why is Wm. Gay still on team? It seems like he can’t get beat enough.
