Ellen: Cee Lo Green The Voice & Hiatus
Ellen asked Cee Lo if she even needed to ask him who he was rooting for on The Voice tonight. He said she didn’t. Nicolas, from Team Cee Lo, is one of two last artists standing.
“Nicolas is like a noun: he’s a person, place and thing,” Cee Lo said. Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera are both taking a one-year hiatus from The Voice. Shakira and Usher are both sitting in for the year to replace them. Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will both still be there.
“It’s very difficult,” Cee Lo Green said. “You have to understand that we are trying to multi-task very dynamic careers. I’m still in music. I don’t do television for a living. I’m a musician.” He said he’s going to go back to the studio and he’s going on tour. He said he loved the show and that NBC was very gracious to allow him and Christina to have a hiatus.
