CeeLo Green has officially left “The Voice”  to pursue other television opportunities including a reality show and possibly a talk show. The president of NBC released a statement about CeeLo’s exit:

“CeeLo Green has been an instrumental part of the success of ‘The Voice’ and we deeply appreciate all his contributions. We’re looking forward to working with him on other upcoming projects that will tap into both his musical and entertainment expertise.”

TBS is already set to air Green’s own reality show “The CeeLo life” later this year. He will also be joining Lionel Richie on an upcoming tour and finishing his new album.

“The Voice” kicked off the sixth season without Green and country star Blake Sheldon, bringing back Shakira and Usher to replace them.
