Cee Lo Green and NBC are teaming up to add some more green to each of their pockets, Christmas-style. Almost 20 of Green's former team members on The Voice will assist with his Christmas TV special, designed to help publicize his forthcoming holiday album.
"I have truly kept my word and remained committed to everyone," Green said. "I'm actually doing a Christmas special -- next week I'm filming. And so I've invited about, I think it's going to be 19 in total. All of my people are coming from Season 3 as we stand, and I'm going back to season 1, getting Nakia, Nicci, Vicci, Jamar, Cheesa."
Green talked about what it takes to build his team on The Voice, highlighting the blind auditions and the new "steal" portion where coaches can add disqualified singers to their tea.
"I think that's the only thing that has changed is we've grown and we've evolved over a period of time," Green said. "It is so well executed and so well-articulated. And even with the new additions that we've made to the system and how it runs, we even adjusted to those because they were very exciting and it kind of revitalized something that could become routine.
"Network television has a status quo that must be met at all times. So sometimes it can feel like a box to be in. But here, it's very lively and energetic and very liberal in the way that they allow us to be alive and advocate that organic energy there," he continued.
