Maroon 5 captured the Best New Artist Grammy in 2005 and then went on to sell more than 10 million albums worldwide. The band won plaudits with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album "Songs About Jane." The first single, "This Love," earned Maroon 5 a Best New Artist Award at the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards; went No. 1 on Top 40, VH1 and MTV simultaneously; and became the first song certified platinum as a download. The other track, "She Will Be Loved," scored a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Maroon 5 has toured alongside scores of artists and performed on numerous TV shows including "Saturday Night Live," "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "The Today Show."
AMERICAN IDOL Season Four runner-up Bo Bice has known that music was what he was going to do since the day he was born � or at least from the age of four, when he plunked down a dollar at a garage sale for records by Jim Croce, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers Band. Bice's first album, "The Real Thing," was just a taste of the broad spectrum of music that is the Alabama-born singer's passion. Bice's sophomore release, "See The Light," is a classic American album that mixes Southern-fried rock, funky grooves, swampy soul and stark emotional ballads.
