On Monday's The Voice, there was an elephant in the room that no one could avoid: Adam Levine's new bald look.
The 36-year-old Maroon 5 frontman decided to ditch his hair and shave his head, which caused a lot of fans a significant amount of confusion and distress.
Making matters more confusing, Adam sported two different hairstyles during the episode – obviously taped at two different times. During his coaching sessions with his team members with advisor John Forgerty, Adam had his usual head of hair. But when the actual battles took place on the main Voice stage, Adam looked more like the villain from a James Bond movie.
Even fellow coach Blake Shelton couldn't help but poke fun of Adam, referring to him at various points as Dr. Evil, Gandhi and Lex Luthor.
Viewers took to Twitter en masse to vent over the singer looking significantly different without the amount of hair they are used to. Some followed Blake's cue and found some choice comparisons between Adam and various pop culture figures…
Other fans just couldn't cope with the loss (of Adam's hair).
Some optimistic fans just tried to look on the bright side of this hair-tastrophe.
Adam took to Twitter after the show to "defend" his lack of hair, and challenged Blake's comparison to Superman villain Lex Luthor, writing, "Excuse me. Lex Luthor was bald. I have 'shaved' my head. Meaning, shaved by choice. Big difference. Ok?!! Ok?!!"

Someone sounds a tad defensive.
This isn't the first time Adam shaved his head and the world flipped out. Back in July the singer debuted his bald look in a pic of himself and his wife Behati Prinsloo lying in bed together. Check out the video below for a look at the first time Adam showed off his buzzed look.
