Holy shiz! We certainly didn't see THIS little stunt coming! LOLz!
Check out Cee-Lo Green's piano-flipping medley of Gnarls Barkley's Crazy, Bright Lights Bigger City, and
Fuck Forget You at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards (above)!
He sounds amazing, as always, but if we're going to be honest, we just wished he would have played that flying piano a little bit more before he did a flip with it!
But either way, well done!

It sure didn't take long for Bruno Mars and Cee Lo to pen
F**k You Forget You!
Bruno recently talked about what it was like working with Cee Lo and says the two got along so swimmingly, they wrote the hit single in two hours.
"We were just jamming. I was on piano and kept on repeating 'f**k you'. Within an hour or two we'd written the whole song with us going back and forth.
I was a big fan of Cee Lo and wanted to work with him for a long time. He was on Travie (McCoy)'s album, which I produced; he's on my album. We became so comfortable that every time we were in the studio [together] it was like 'The Comedy Store', we'd just be laughing, writing songs.
I should have kept the damn song."
Ha! Sounds like they had a fun time in the studio together! They made a huge hit - we think they should do some more collaborations together!

Not surprising. We know our favorites made the list!
With Glee up for two Grammys in two weeks, The Hollywood Reporter went ahead and listed the top 5 biggest selling Glee renditions to date. And they are:
# 1 Don't Stop Believin' - 1.1 million downloads
# 2 Forget You - 466,000
# 3 Teenage Dream - 407,000
# 4 Halo/Walking On Sunshine - 332,000
# 5 Somebody To Love - 331,000
We actually thought Don't Stop sold a lot more than that, but the numbers are still very impressive.
Wonder how well Thriller/Heads Will Roll will fair come this weekend!

Cee-Lo Green expects his new version of Forget You featuring Gwyneth Paltrow will be released for the fans. Although he doesn't know all the deets quite yet!
"We went to the studio in New York and we did our own specialized version of 'Forget You' together and I'm not sure how they're gonna release [it], but it's probably another cool little treat for people to have and enjoy.
We've been doing so great together. I mean, we're everywhere together right now, so they may just release it in conjunction with everything else that we're doing.
I just really got a chance to see her be the consummate professional. She's very kind to me, very sweet, very well read about my history and my career and accomplishments and all of that, and, of course, the feeling was mutual. She came in, she knocked her part out very easily, very successful. I was impressed."
Awww. Glad they got along so well!

It seems that Cee Lo loved Gwyneth Paltrow's version of his song Forget You on Glee - and now they're recording a duet!
"She sings like a natural," said Cee Lo.
The two were at studio MSR in NYC over the weekend and on Monday afternoon recording a new version of the song.
And they will reunite on January 15th when Gwyneth hosts SNL and Cee Lo performs.
Wonder if there are any live duets in the near future! Can't wait!
