FORGET YOU: Cee Lo Fans Won’t Like This
(BlackMediaScoop) Cee Lo Green is leaving his spinning judge’s chair behind. The producer and recording artist said he will not return to NBC’s The Voice, telling Ellen DeGeneres in an interview airing Wednesday, “I’m not coming back, guys.”
“I’m going to continue my relationship with NBC. I have a television show development deal with them as well and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year,” Green said in the interview. “But yeah, I’m going to miss The Voice, too.”
Cee Lo taped the interview for The Ellen DeGeneres Show alongside Lionel Richie, whom he is joining on an upcoming tour they’ve dubbed All the Hits All Night Long.
“I just want to … I don’t want to wear out my welcome there,” he continued. “You know what I’m saying? I have so many other things that I want to do. I haven’t released an album in four years. I’m almost done with my album.”
Cee Lo served as a judge on the first three seasons of The Voice, as well as season five. The music competition show returns for a sixth season starting Feb. 24 with a judging panel that includes Shakira, Usher, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.
