Cee Lo Green: The X Factor Should Worry About The Voice

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Prime Time, Reality, Gossip,

Cee Lo GreenCee Lo Green thinks X Factor bosses should be "concerned" about The Voice.

The "Bright Lights Bigger City" hitmaker - who sits alongside Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton on the panel of the NBC talent show - isn't worried about the rival singing program going up against the series because he believes they are "completely different."

"The premises of each show are just completely different. I think if anybody should be concerned, it's them," he said when speaking on The Tonight Show.

Earlier in the current series of The Voice, the 37-year-old singer broke down in tears three times in an episode of the talent show during the emotional Battle round. Cee Lo was crushed while struggling to choose who to send through to the next round out of hopefuls Justin Hopkins and Tony Vincent, and he was also cried during rehearsal when one wannabe sang Cindy Lauper's "True Colors."

"This song moves people, that's what this song is doing right here. That song made me cry, man. I'm proud of you all, man. Wow, dude. OK man, OK I surrender. I don't sing like that. I can't help but be humbled by it. Final words of advice, live it, love it and just be in the moment," he said after the performance.

Kelly Clarkson to Judge New TV Talent Show

Kelly ClarksonKelly Clarkson has joined the judging panel of new TV talent show Duets.

The "Stronger" hitmaker - who found fame on the first series of American Idol - will join forces with music legend Lionel Richie, as well as Jennifer Nettles and Robin Thicke on the upcoming ABC series, which is set to debut this summer.

After scouring the US for undiscovered talent, Duets will see the celebrity mentors paired with aspiring vocalists for a live performance in front of a studio audience each week, with the eventual winner bagging a recording contract with Hollywood Records.

"The simple fact that I get to go out and find two people that I believe in, sing with them every week, and help them accomplish their dream is an amazing thing that I can't wait to be a part of," Kelly said in a statement.

The 29-year-old singer - who worked as a guest mentor on The Voice last year - has previously admitted she has been given a "hard time" because she found success on a TV talent show: "People have given me such a hard time. I came from a singing show, so I like singing shows, obviously. What was the big shocker there?"

Adam LevineAdam Levine would love to see Kanye West guest star on The Voice.

The Maroon 5 singer and mentor on the reality show thinks the outspoken rapper - famed for interrupting award shows to give his opinions - would be a great person to appear alongside the panel, although he's not sure if network NBC would be so keen.

Speaking on Anderson, he said he'd pick Kanye "just because he's such a firecracker. I'm sure that terrifies NBC, but that would be fun. I love Kanye, I love what he does."

Adam - who judges the show alongside Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton - also addressed rumors the mentors don't get on, saying their arguments are just for the camera: "It's fine. Everyone's so funny. They take one little thing. We bicker, like brother and sister kind of thing, but it's all in good fun. No one's carrying it with them anywhere other than the stage."
