The band will challenge the remaining eight chefs to create "a feast fit for a rock star."

Following in the footsteps of Foo Fighters, who appeared on Top Chef Season 5 and put 13 aspiring restauranteurs through the ringer in a Thanksgiving challenge, the band Maroon 5 will guest star on Top Chef Masters on May 11. The challenge: "a feast fit for a rock star." The execution? "Not as easy as it seems," reads a statement issued on Monday.

In fact, like the Foos episode, which challenged the contestants to work in an outdoor kitchen at a tour stop in Rochester, New York (with no refrigerators, freezers or stoves, only prep tables, microwaves and toaster ovens), Maroon 5 also plans to take the remaining eight chefs "out of the kitchen to a surprise location," where they will prepare their culinary masterpiece.

Top Chef Masters' current lineup includes George Mendes, of New York's Aldeas, Traci Des Jardins, of San Francisco's Jardiniére, and Mary Sue Milliken, representing LA's Border Grill restaurants and truck.

And it seems Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine has found a cozy home a NBC, parent company of the Bravo network, which airs the popular series. He also has a permanent seat on The Voice, the network's singing reality show which premiered last week with over 11 million viewers tuning in.
