Cee Lo Green Has Quit "The Voice"

The sixth season of "The Voice" premieres on Monday and, for the second time, CEE LO GREEN and CHRISTINA AGUILERA are being subbed out for SHAKIRA and USHER


But this time, Cee Lo is NOT planning on coming back as a judge, EVER.


On yesterday's "Ellen", he surprised her by saying, "I'm going to miss 'The Voice'.  I'm not coming back at all." Cee Lo adds that it's time to focus on his own music.  "I don't want to wear out my welcome there, but I have so many other things I want to do.  I haven't released an album in four years."


He's going to start by going out on tour with LIONEL RICHIE.  Cee Lo also has a development deal with NBC, and wants to pursue other, "talk show opportunities."  (Here's video.)
