Last week, we learned that Cee-Lo Green and Maroon 5's Adam Levine were in talks to join NBC/Mark Burnett's singing competition series The Voice, which is based on the top-rated series from the Netherlands, The Voice of Holland.
Now, we've learned that Cee-Lo and Adam have officially signed on for the show!
Here's what Burnett had to say about it:
“I am so happy that Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green have joined the coach panel for The Voice. Aside from being incredible voices, they bring years of experience in the music industry and a really cool vibe that has never been seen before on a music competition series.”
As a reminder, The Voice's format consists of four coaches who listen to, but don't watch singers, and if they like the singer, they push a button that sends them to the next round, to be claimed as one of their "students."
If the singer is liked by more than one judge/coach, the singer is allowed to choose which one will coach them, and then coaches will have teams go head-to-head against each other.
The show premieres on Tuesday, April 26, and one judge/coach seat is still vacant. Guess we'll see if they choose Christina Aguilera, who is still in talks to join the show.
…If things don't work out with Xtina, they can always call us! As we said before, Perez would be a FANTASTIC judge/coach! Ha!
Are U happy that Cee-Lo Green and Adam Levine were chosen as judges? Do U want to see Xtina as the third judge?
