Adam Levine and Xtina team up for 'Moves Like Jagger' - listen to the premiere now!

Yeah, she looks like this now.
Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera are solid B-list performers (sorry Christina, but even Mariah drooped to a B+ after 'Glitter.' And you're not Mariah.) but their fortunes have both been looking up as of late.  After the kind of inexplicable success of talent competition/advertising revenue generator 'The Voice,' the two artistes figured they'd cash in on some of their new-found audience capital and chuck out a collaboration.

Maroon 5's last project did relatively okay, but Xtina's 'Bionic' was, in every commercial sense, an unmitigated disaster.  So it's probably a good idea for the bleached troll-doll of a pop diva to cozy up with Mr. Levine, since he's in a much better position than her to dust the crumbs off failure off her music career.

Commercially, the song is a great idea, but musically it's nothing more than decent.  It's got a cool kind of disco thing going, and we're actually digging the tune right now, but we're guessing no one will remember this even exists in a year or two...so, it's kind of the 2011 equivalent of that Ricky Martin/Christina thing 'Nobody Wants To Be Lonely.'

Yeah.  Exactly.

It's at least a step in the right direction for Xtina's musical rehab, but as much as we love Maroon 5 we're totally calling them as the Hootie and the Blowfish of the late noughties/early teens.  

Note to Christina:  next time try to do something with Nikki Minaj and Rihanna.  Trust us.
