Cee Lo Green says he won't be returning to the spinning judge's seat on NBC's singing competition show "The Voice." The artist broke the news on "The Ellen DeGeneres" show, revealing his change in plans just days before "The Voice" re-emerges Monday.
"I didn't mean to drop the bomb," said Green, who appeared on the daytime talk show with touring partner Lionel Richie. Green said he has other plans in the works for NBC, including a potential talk show.
"I'm going to continue my relationship with NBC," he said. "I have a television show development deal with them as well, and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year."
When "The Voice" returns Monday, regulars Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will be joined by alternates Shakira and Usher. The latter two have sat in for Green and Christina Aguilera in the past.
