Former coach CeeLo Green will be back on The Voice for the Season 10 finale. Green acted as a coach in The Voice from Seasons 1 to 3 and Season 5; he also came back in Season 8 as a mentor to coach Blake Shelton’s team and again in 2015. Now, as Us Weekly reports, CeeLo will be back, this time onstage to sing his 2006 song “Crazy” with Team Pharrell’s remaining contestant, Hannah Huston.

Other big celebrities will also be present in The Voice finale to sing duets with the other contestants. According to the same Us Weekly report, Alison Krauss will be performing “Willin” with Adam Wakefield from Team Blake, Joe Walsh will be performing “Rocky Mountain Way” with Team Adam’s Laith Al-Saadi, and Jennifer Nettles will be singing “Unlove You” with Team Christina’s Alisan Porter.
CeeLo Green allegedly left The Voice because of a felony drug case in 2014. In 2012, the singer allegedly gave his date ecstasy during their dinner. CeeLo pleaded no contest and was ordered by a judge to serve 45 days of community service, 3 years probation, and 52 alcohol and drug counseling sessions. According to a Daily Mail report, the judge ordered the removal of CeeLo Green’s supervised probation a month ago. According to reports, CeeLo has already completed the required number of hours for his community service, and he has been fully cooperative.
In an interview last year, CeeLo Green stated his desire to go back to The Voice as a coach.
“I’ve talked very possibly about doing The Voice again. So I just kind of put that out there, wishful thinking, kind of willing it. Because I would love to do it again.”
There is no news stating whether CeeLo will return to The Voice as a coach, but if he does, it would definitely not be during the next season. According to several reports, next season’s coaches will include Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys, along with Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. Shelton and Levine have been present in all seasons of The Voice since the show started in 2011.
In addition to making an appearance on The Voice, CeeLo Green will also appear in this week’s Lip Sync Battle channeling his inner rockstar, as InStyle has reported. CeeLo will sing “Rock and Roll All Nite” by KISS and will come out onstage donning a black vest with studs, a curly wig, and Gene Simmons’ signature black and white makeup. He will be going head-to-head against Russell Peters. Check out a sneak peek of the episode below.
Aside from his TV appearances, CeeLo Green will also have his hands full with his Love Train Tour Pt. 2, which will kick off in London, U.K., on May 26 and will end in Brooklyn, New York, on August 27. Tickets for his tour are on sale on his official website, where fans can purchase a VIP package that includes a meet-and-greet with CeeLo, a photo with CeeLo, and other goods such as a commemorative tour laminate, a cinch bag, and an autographed photo.
