Adam Levine makes his intentions known on 'The Voice,' Season 2, NBC -- NBC

Four is the magic number on NBC's "The Voice," but Adam Levine wouldn't mind adding an additional seat in the big red chairs if a certain hip-hop star was free.

"I would love to see -- just because he's such a firecracker -- like a Kanye [West] do a show like that because he'd be so -- I'm sure that terrifies NBC -- but that would be fun," the Maroon 5 singer told Anderson Cooper for next Monday's "Anderson." "I love Kanye, I love what he does."

"You wouldn't be afraid he'd grab the mic from you?" Anderson quipped, a reference to the Kanye's incident at the 2009 MTV VMAs.

"We'd all be afraid all the time, that's the beauty of it," Adam said.

Adam may have mentored Javier Colon to "The Voice" title on Season 1of the show, but when it comes to who he'd like to mentor himself, the "Moves Like Jagger" singer mentioned a Beatle.

"To mentor me? You know, [one] guy that I haven't met, who was so hugely influential to me was Paul McCartney," Adam said. "I'm such a huge Paul McCartney fan."

The singer said he has been in the same room with Paul, but never had the opportunity to start a conversation with the Liverpool-bred superstar.

"I've been in the same room with him many times," he said. "I think mostly because we just haven't crossed paths and it never naturally happened, but someday I'd love to meet him."
