But THEN it was confirmed today that none other than Cee Lo Green will serve as a judge on the show! This changes everything!
Oh yeah, Maroon 5's Adam Levine will be one of the other judges. That's nice. But did I mention CEE LO is involved? Huzzah!
"These amazing artists are the perfect inspiration for our contestants to look up to as they begin their journeys from 'voices' to true artists--and any hopeful singer would be incredibly lucky to have either one as their coach," NBC exec Paul Telegdy said in a statement.
"Being a coach on 'The Voice' is a substantial responsibility, and I take it with sincerity and distinction," Cee Lo also said, in an all-too-politely worded statement, today.
Man, I hope that by "taking it with sincerity and distinction," Cee Lo means "wearing Elton John rainbow-feathers, performing with Muppets, and acting crazier than an off-the-wagon Steven Tyler." Because Cee Lo has a "substantial responsibility" to entertain here--and I know he'll deliver, as long as the NBC censors don't get too skittish.
"The Voice" premieres Tuesday, April 26 at 9pm on NBC. Set your DVRs now.
