Cee Lo Green has pulled out of BBC One show 'The Voice' due to a scheduling clash with the US version of the talent show, on which he is also a judge
Cee Lo Green has pulled out of BBC One show 'The Voice'.
The 'Forget You' hitmaker currently sits on the panel of the US version of the singing competition - which sees hopefuls perform for the judges without them seeing their face - and although he had planned to take part in both, a scheduling clash has led to him choosing to stay with the US programme.
A BBC source told The Sun newspaper: "He'd have been a great signing but he has to commit to the US show."
'The Voice' has also seen former 'X Factor' stars Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue, rocker Lenny Kravitz and 'Price Tag' singer Jessie J linked with judging roles, and is due to begin later this year.
However, show bosses are reportedly keen for Adele to take part as she "embodies all that 'The Voice' represents".
A source said: "She's honest, funny and loved by millions of people of all ages. She really has 'The Voice' that can sell albums around the world so she knows what to look for.
"Her style and look is also very different to that of Cheryl Cole, so if we could get them both on board it would be fantastic."
