Cee Lo Green And Adam Levine Join NBC’s ‘The Voice’—Is Christina Aguilera Next?
As mentioned earlier this month, NBC is launching a new televised singing talent competition this spring called The Voice, which will be hosted by Carson Daly. (Actually, it’s an adaptation of a Dutch program, where hopefuls audition while the judges are turned away and can’t actually see them.) And now The Voice has two high-profile voices on the judging panel, in the forms of Grammy winners Cee Lo Green and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, reports Entertainment Weekly. “I was absolutely thrilled to be invited by Mark Burnett to join The Voice as a coach,” said a statement from Adam Levine. “I look forward to working with these singers and helping them push forward throughout the competition to make their musical dreams become a reality.”
Likewise, Cee Lo, who hit up the special Oscar night episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live , sounded equally as enthused. “It’s an honor for me to be able to help mold a malleable and new talent in such a fashion as The Voice,” said Cee Lo Green in a statement. “Being a coach on The Voice is a substantial responsibility, and I take it with sincerity and distinction.”
We just wonder if there’s enough room on television for yet another singing competition?
