Now that he’s off “The Voice,” Adam Levine had time to squeeze in a quick bat mitzvah gig over the weekend.

The Maroon 5 frontman performed at the bat mitzvah of Adam Sandler’s daughter Sadie on Saturday night, the comedian dished on Thursday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

Sandler, appearing shocked that Levine agreed to perform at the celebration, said he reached out to the singer because he wanted to “do something special” for 13-year-old Sadie’s big day.

“I start texting Adam Levine, who’s a great guy,” Sandler said of his conversation just days before the Jewish coming-of-age ritual. “I say, ‘I’m sorry to do this to you, but my kid’s getting bat mitzvah’d Saturday night. Would you mind coming and singing a few tunes? It would be incredible.’”

Levine, 40, agreed and performed three songs with his band’s lead guitarist, James Valentine.

Sandler, 52, said the bat mitzvah venue was actually familiar to Levine. “He goes, ‘I used to go there growing up. I went to a bunch of bar mitzvahs when I was a kid,” Sandler said of their texts.

Sandler said his longtime pal Jennifer Aniston, who appeared alongside him during the “Jimmy Kimmel” interview to promote their Netflix movie “Murder Mystery,” was invited to Sadie’s bat mitzvah but couldn’t attend because she “had stuff going on.”

He then joked, “So she sent a gift, one of the best gifts Sadie received out of everybody …. $1.8 million. We couldn’t believe it. And Sadie blew it … [on] a lot of cupcakes.”
