Cee Lo Green wants to make the first big star of "The Voice"

Cee Lo Green - The Voice - Season 5

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - "The Voice" is a ratings success for NBC, but judge Cee Lo Green says it has one more mountain to climb.

Green said Friday that "The Voice" has yet to mint a new music star from its contestants, and he'd like to be a part of changing that.

As a contrast, Fox's "American Idol" has developed stars like Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood.

Green has alternated with Usher as a judge on "The Voice." He says he'd like to continue but he has other ambitions that might someday pull him away.

Green is starring in a TBS comedy series with his colleagues in the rap group Goodie Mob that is due to air later this year.

I would rather have Usher than C Lo be on the voice. Usher can sing and dance awesome, whereas, C Lo is better at dressing like a clown and singing like he sucks on helium all the time.

CeeLo adds so little to the show- Usher is a far better coach TENFOLD. CeeLo's song choices for his 'team' are often ones that don't show their best.. This year he let Cole go - Blake stole him and he became a fan favorite. Cole did a great rendition of Hall & Oates btw!!

The country performers are becoming the 'real' stars so far (not a country fan!). I liked Adam's 2 'wins' - Javier Colon and Tessanne Chin. We haven't heard much from Javier (season 1) - Tessanne just won so let's see how her 'star' emerges. Matt Schuler (from Chistina's team this season) should have gone further. He was incredible, hopefully he'll be the Jennifer Hudson or Chris Daughtry of 'The Voice'.

Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood became stars AFTER they got out from under the thumb of their American Idol contracts...as long as The Voice tells the winner what to sing when to sing it and how to sing it there will never be a star from the show especially witth the mediocre material they make them sing

Yeah, and Green wants to be six-four and 180 pounds of solid muscle. But that isn't going to happen either.

I'm sure one day Cee Lo might be real star himself.

Green is a freak and not a very good role model to anyone. Likes his drugs.

You have to Sign In first to leave a comment.Muleskinner07 you are a fool that I guess has no talent. It takes some skill to be a rap star or the entire world would be rich. You sound like a talentless hater who better hope that you keep your skill-less job.
