Cee Lo Green confirms 'The Voice' judges will return for second season
In rather unsurprising news of the day, Cee Lo Green said it's a "safe assumption" that "The Voice's" judges roster -- Green, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine -- will remain the same when the reality competition returns for its second season.
"We've already been secured for a second season, so prepare to see a lot more of myself, Christina, Blake and Adam, and a host of great artists doing their thing," Green told Billboard.
"The Voice" turned out to be a sleeper hit when its premiere logged 11.8 million total viewers, according to the Nielsen Co. Though the show was down 4% from last week, it managed to be Tuesday's top-rated prime-time program -- beating Fox's "Glee" for a second consecutive week.
Still in it's "battle round" phase, the series will begin airing live June 7.
