Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green Duet Pending
This season of ‘The Voice‘ is heating up with just one contestant remaining for each of the four music judges, but the stiff competition between country superstar Blake Shelton and R&B crooner Cee Lo Green hasn’t kept the two from entertaining the idea of collaborating after the winner has been announced.
“I have a song for Blake Shelton that I gave to him. And I’d like to do it alongside him,” Green tells the Associated Press. “I’d like for it to be a duet.”
Judging by the success Maroon 5′s frontman Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera 2010 pop smash, ‘Moves Like Jagger,’ a possible duet for the remaining two judges could be a lucrative career move. ‘Moves Like Jagger’ spent multiple weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart, selling more than four million single song downloads. Shelton scored his highest position as a solo artist on the all-genre chart last year, reaching No. 13 with ‘Honey Bee’ on the strength of his popular television gig.
Green’s recent revelation isn’t the first speculation of collaborations with the ‘Drink on It’ singer. Just last month, Aguilera tackled Shelton’s No. 1 hit ‘Hillbilly Bone’ with her team on the show, coyly hinting at working with the country singer after her performance. Blake responded back, saying, “Well you know it’s an understatement to say that I’m open to singing a duet with Christina Aguilera. More like I would pay her, I would beg her, I’ll wash her car, I’ll clean her house, I’ll babysit her kid.”
It seems the judges are happy to work together outside of their red chairs, but on the show, it’s every man for himself.Will Jermaine Paul and Team Shelton take home the supreme title this season on ‘The Voice’?
