Cee Lo Green Confirms 'The Voice' Season 5 Return, Says Nicholas David Should Have Won (VIDEO)

Two days after the Season 3 finale of "The Voice," Cee Lo Green stopped by "Today" to confirm that he'll back as a judge for Season 5 after skipping the show's next cycle.

"Let's be straight about this ladies and gentlemen: I'm not leaving 'The Voice.' I'll be back for Season 5. I'm going on hiatus. I'm doing a Las Vegas residency next year," he explained. Shakira and Usher will be stepping in for Cee Lo and Christina Aguilera for Season 4.

Green also stuck up for his team-member Nicholas David, who lost to Cassadee Pope from Blake Shelton's team on Tuesday night's finale. "I really did think that my Nicholas did have a really strong chance and I do believe he should have won," Green maintained.
