It seems that Cee Lo Green is absolutely sure that he will not be returning at The Voice. At least, this is what the singer said during his appearance in the latest edition of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Naturally, everyone was quite surprised with Cee Lo Green’s statement. Even Ellen. “I’m not coming back at all,” the star told the famous television show host. The decision is quite curious having under consideration the fact that the star has been a coach on the show for no less than 5 seasons.
Season 6 of The Voice will start on Monday, naturally without Cee Lo Green. However, he is not the only The Voice coach who will not be returning on the show for this new season. Christina Aguilera also decided to departure from The Voice.
This means that the four coaches on The Voice for its latest season are going to be Adam Levine, Black Shelton, Shakira and Usher.
Still, the departure from the show does not mean that Cee Lo Green will end his relationship with NBC. In fact, the star told Ellen that his intentions are far from that. “I have a television show development deal with them as well and hopefully some other talk show opportunities. I don’t want to wear out my welcome (at The Voice),” the star said.
The singer also claimed that it wasn’t his intention to make the official announcement on the show. However, he said that his decision is linked to the fact that he wants to have more time to focus on other projects.
“I have so many other things I want to do… I haven’t released an album in four years,” Green told during his appearance at The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The famous rapper also added that he has almost done working at a new album.
NBC soon confirmed the news, saying in a statement that they are looking forward to seen Green in other projects that are now in development.
Green also announced in the show that this summer he can be seen in the upcoming tour of Lionel Richie. Initially, it was speculated that Cee Lo Green will just take a small break from the show to return for its seventh season. Now, it seems that the star will not be returning.
