Cee Lo on 'The Voice': 'I'm not coming back, guys'

Fans of The Voice, you may want to sit down for this: Cee Lo Green is leaving the show.

The musician appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in an episode airing Wednesday to talk about joining Lionel Richie on tour, and when DeGeneres asked him what he’s up to now, he revealed he’s leaving The Voice for good.

“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. But yeah, I’m going to miss The Voice too,” he said before turning to the audience and saying, “I’m not coming back, guys.”

This was news to DeGeneres, who thought he was just taking a leave from the show to go on tour. “I don’t want to wear out my welcome there. I have so many other things I want to do, I haven’t released an album in four years,” Green said. 

So Green is getting back to music, which is great news for fans of his catchy tunes. His tour with Richie, dubbed “All the Hits All Night Long” kicks off in May.

Christina Aguilera returning to 'The Voice'

Apparently, what a girl wants is an NBC homecoming. Original Voice judge Christina Aguilera will return for the fifth season of the peacock’s reality hit, sources confirm to EW. (TheWrap first reported the news.)

Aguilera and fellow original judge Cee Lo Green exited the series last winter at the end of season 3 to focus on their own music careers. Aguilera has been promoting her Lotus album and tour, while Green is working on his solo album Girl Power, as well as a reality show for TBS. They were replaced by Usher and Shakira for The Voice‘s spring edition, though NBC always expected both musicians to be back for the fall of 2013. And though Green has yet to sign a contract, he is reportedly also nearing a deal to return to the singing competition.

Sources say that Aguilera’s own contract is for about $12 million, a number exceeded by the paydays given to one-season wonders such as American Idol‘s Mariah Carey (widely reported to be $18 million) and The X Factor‘s Britney Spears ($15 million).

Lady Antebellum, Rod Stewart, and more to perform on 'The Voice'

The Voice will welcome an influx of celebrities in the next few weeks: Rod Stewart, Cee Lo Green, Lady Antebellum, Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and T.I. will all appear on the show, NBC announced today.

Stewart and Green will perform Wednesday, May 8; Lady Antebellum, along with Thicke, Williams and T.I., will hit the stage Tuesday ,May 14. For many of the artists, this isn’t their first tango with the spinning chairs. Williams was previously an adviser to Team Usher; Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum served as an adviser to Team Adam earlier this season. Thicke dropped by the show last year, and of course, Green was previously a judge on the program.

The Voice has continued to perform well despite a recent ratings dip. Last Tuesday, the show had 12.4 million viewers and a 4.0 adults 18-49 rating.

'The Voice' winner Cassadee Pope talks Blake, her upcoming album, and dealing with haters

Ready for your mind to be blown? According to 23-year-old Cassadee Pope — newly crowned winner of NBC’s The Voice — the ever-eccentric Cee Lo Green is actually “really normal” in person. “You can sit down and have a conversation with him and it’s not weird,” she explained yesterday during a visit to EW’s offices in New York City. “He’s very intellectual.”

Cassadee’s insight about Cee Lo is much more surprising than her recent win, which seemed foretold as soon as her cover of Blake Shelton’s “Over You” shot to No. 1 on iTunes’s singles chart. While the singer says she never thought of herself as season 3′s frontrunner — “I knew that stuff can happen in this show and not be lasting” — she will admit that her iTunes sales made her “very optimistic” before Tuesday’s finale. And though Cassadee feels like her victory still hasn’t really sunk in, she also can’t wait to get back to the recording studio in January and start work on a debut album that combines pop, rock, and country — sort of like “an edgier Taylor Swift [record], not as country, with more mature lyrics and more challenging vocals and melodies.”

Intrigued? Read on for more about Cassadee’s time on the show, her relationship with mentor Blake Shelton — and her near miss with the Muppets.

Backstage at 'The Voice,' the coaches snipe, snark, flirt, and reminisce -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

Reunited, and it feels so good!

On the first day of Season 3′s Blind Auditions, The Voice coaches Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton, and Christina Aguilera gathered backstage to discuss the season ahead. Social media correspondent Christina Milian got the ball rolling by asking the coaches to name who they see as their biggest competition — which led to Aguilera calling Levine “a sensitive, tender lover,” then imitating Shelton’s big-hearted Santa laugh, then giggling as Levine quoted a famously profane moment from Half Baked (NSFW).

Watch their chummy camaraderie below — before the claws come out on tonight’s episode:

'How To Rock' star Cymphonique Miller spills on Cee Lo, Demi Lovato, and her famous family

The Voice‘s zaniest coach Cee Lo Green is given to rocking jumpsuits that look like they’re made of Muppets and stroking his stuffed cat Purrfect. Does that make him crazy? Possibly. But when Green showed up for a guest stint on Nick’s How to Rock (airing tonight at 8 p.m. ET), he was surprisingly understated, donning a plain black T-shirt and relatively few flashes of bling. “I’m used to seeing him in big, colorful feathers and all these crazy outfits,” laughs the show’s 15-year-old star Cymphonique Miller, “and he was really down-to-earth with his outfits when he came on set.”

Green’s no-nonsense air didn’t end with his ensemble, says Miller. “Whenever I work with an artist or someone from the music industry [who comes] into the acting world, it’s always interesting to see if they memorize lines or take the acting seriously,” she notes, adding happily that Green was “really cool and professional…. He really brought his own flavor to the role.” Green also brought his family, a fact Miller appreciated given her own famous pedigree — she’s the daughter of Master P and sister to the artist formerly known as Lil’ Romeo. Below, Miller dishes on what exactly she is doing on stage with Green, another exciting star cameo to come, and the best advice she got from upcoming X Factor judge Demi Lovato.

Cee Lo Green to guest on TV Land's 'Soul Man' as rival pastor to Cedric the Entertainer -- EXCLUSIVE

Cee Lo Green is busy coaching on NBC’s The Voice, writing a memoir, working on multiple albums, and prepping a residency in Las Vegas. But he isn’t stopping there: EW has exclusively learned that Green is taping a guest spot on TV Land’s new sitcom The Soul Man this week.

The TV Land comedy stars Cedric the Entertainer as Reverend Boyce, a former R&B star, and Niecy Nash as his wife, Lolli. Green is set to appear as — what else? — a flashy rival preacher who’s stealing congregation members from Boyce’s church.

The Soul Man premieres on TV Land June 20 at 10 p.m. and follows Boyce as he moves home to St. Louis with his family to preach at his father’s church where his clan has to adjust to their new, humble life. The show was originally a spin-off of TV Land’s successful comedy Hot in Cleveland, which featured Boyce in the Aug. 24, 2011, episode “Bridezelka” alongside series stars Betty White, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick, and Valerie Bertinelli. Soul Man producers include Cleveland producers Suzanne Martin, Todd Milliner, and Sean Hayes, along with Soul Man star Cedric the Entertainer and showrunner Phoef Sutton.

the-voice

Week one of battle rounds may be over, but that doesn’t mean that the remaining artists left on NBC’s The Voice can rest easy. In fact, the pressure is higher than ever, and three of this season’s contestants dropped by EW to talk about just that.

Charlotte Sometimes (Team Blake), Jermaine Paul (Team Blake) and Tony Vincent (Team Cee Lo) — all New York locals — swung by the EW office last week to answer some of the more pressing questions we had (that host Carson Daly doesn’t already answer for us!). How does it feel to be a Twitter trending topic? What’s life like in Cee Lo Land? And have they ever gotten the pleasure – nay, privilege – of encountering Purrfect the cat?
