It’s a crazy little thing called love when a diverse set of superstars converge on a Gnarls Barkley cover

The commercials for NBC’s The Voice have been jumping out the can  like “crazy,” so it makes sense for the show’s celebrity judges to team up for a super-sized performance that’s soooo “crazy,” in a good way.

Adam Levine opens the song while jamming to a drum kit, while Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera bring home the bacon on selected verses. The voice of Gnarls Barkley, Cee Lo Green, is also present and fills in the blanks. More of his presence would have been suffice, but you can always play the original in the comforts of your home. To see these stars coming together for an impromptu jam session makes us all believe that music is totally worth saving. Hopefully, this kind of excitement could very well save the dying “searching for a superstar” format.

Friendly reminder: NBC’s The Voice airs April 26.
