Cee Lo Green Leaving 'The Voice' For Good

It looks like the dream team of coaches on "The Voice" is done for good. Of late, the original team of Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, and Blake Shelton had settled into the fall edition, with Usher and Shakira replacing Aguilera and Green for the winter cycle. Now, though, comes word that Green is leaving the show completely.

Green broke the news during a taping of "Ellen," scheduled to air on Wednesday. "I'm going to continue my relationship with NBC," he told host Ellen DeGeneres. "I have a television show development deal with them as well and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year. But yeah, I'm going to miss 'The Voice' ... I'm not coming back, guys."

He said that there are so many other things he wants to do, like complete work on his latest album. Now, it will be up to NBC to once again fill Green's chair, but this time in the fall cycle as well. Can they convince Usher or Shakira to film back-to-back seasons, or will it be a new face entirely?

The new season of "The Voice" kicks off on Monday, February 24 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
