CeeLo Green may be leaving NBC's The Voice, but the singer has plenty of things on his plate to keep him busy.
He will be joining Lionel Richie on tour for a slew of summer dates starting in May. He'll also be making his movie debut in the upcoming film Can A Song Save Your Life. And Green says he'll also be juggling several projects for NBC.
"NBC and I plan to continue our relationship with several new co-ventures including a new music show, while we also explore our ideas for me to create and host a new show of my own," Green told Ellen DeGeneres after announcing his departure from The Voice. "I will not go quietly into the night ... expect more great music and entertainment done in my own unique unmistakable and undeniable way."

Sayonara, Cee Lo Green!
It was a bummer of a day for fans of The Voice Wednesday when, after four years of being a coach on the singing competition, Cee Lo Green announced that he was stepping away from the chair for good.
But fear not, Cee Lo fans: The musician isn't fully leaving the spotlight. "I'm going to continue my relationship with NBC," he said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "I have a television development deal with them as well, and hopefully some other talk-show opportunities later in the year." He also plans to work on his music again, starting with a tour with Lionel Richie.
While we wish him luck, the looming question is, who on earth could possibly fill his (fabulous) shoes? Take our poll and let us know what you think the producers should do next season!

The Voice closed out its fifth season in star-studded fashion Tuesday, but even performances from the likes of Céline Dion and Lady Gaga – who dueted with coach Christina Aguilera for the first time – could not outshine the real star of the night: winner Tessanne Chin.
Tessanne Chin and Will Champlin of Team Adam Levine and Jacquie Lee of Team Christina made the coaches' chairs swivel during their blind auditions, then never failed to out-belt their competitors to win the hearts of their coaches, and the votes of America to earn a spot in the finals.
But only one could walk away with The Voice title.

Ladies and gentlemen, The Voice officially has its finalists.

So who did America vote through to the finals, and who ended their musical journey?

As any Hallmark card can tell you, the holidays are about bringing people together. For some of us, that means reuniting with grown-up children, or welcoming long-lost cousins into our homes. But for musicians, it means something else: seasonal duets, often performed with the oddest of partners.
From reality-show novelty songs to stocking-stuffer EPs, Christmas isn't Christmas until two people who have no business being in the same room have crowded in front of the mic to sing a holiday classic. Why do they do this? You should just as soon ask Black Friday shoppers why they camp out for hours in front of big-box stores. Holiday magic is a compelling thing.

Tessanne Chin's coach, Adam Levine, alluded to a personal and private burden she'd been carrying this week, but she channeled those raw emotions into her performance on The Voice on Monday, with a searing version of Simon and Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" that had the audience on its feet cheering.
Pouring out her heart, the Jamaican power vocalist ended her song with a sustained note that showcased her strength and likely cemented her place in the show's final as the last five contestants battled in the live semifinals round.
"That was crazy what just happened," Levine said. "The sheer talent is just … I think that is probably the most flawless and graceful performance I've ever heard on this show."

Team Sexy continued Tuesday – but this week it was a close one.
The Voice results show had a little bit of everything this week: a live performance from an expectant Kelly Clarkson, coaches Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera sporting some funky hats, and nail-biting drama, courtesy of the Twitter instant save, which determined who would be sent home.
The show kicked off with a holiday performance of "Underneath the Christmas Tree" by a still-queasy Clarkson, who didn't move around much onstage, and told host Carson Daly, "I've felt better. I'm looking forward to the second trimester."

It's one thing to perform one of your coach's career-defining songs; it's yet another to do it powerfully and earn her full blessing.
That's what New Jersey teen Jacquie Lee did Monday night on The Voice when she tackled Christina Aguilera's coming-of-age ballad "The Voice Within" with a vocal range rivaling her own coach, who was feeling their connection.
"I do find so many similarities in you, not only as a vocalist but as a person," a beaming Aguilera told Lee. "It's a struggle to find yourself, so young, in this business … I wrote this song when I was 20, 21, and it was a time in my life when you're being pushed and pulled in so many directions."

Adam Levine's winning streak continues.
For the third week in a row, The Voice coach – and PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive – not only kept his team of three intact, but avoided the dreaded bottom three, which this week featured one contestant representing each of his fellow coaches.
Team Adam's Tessanne Chin, 28, Will Champlin, 30, and James Wolpert, 22, were all saved, along with Jacquie Lee, 16, of Team Christina Aguilera and Cole Vosbury, 22, of Team Blake Shelton.
