Cee-lo Green, Adam Levine may judge NBC's 'The Voice'




As American Idol continues its downward slide into mediocrity, NBC is ramping up its efforts for its own talent show, Mark Burnett's singing contest The Voice. And who will judge such a show? Would you believe Cee-lo Green and Maroon 5's Adam Levine?

Entertainment Weekly says the pair are in serious talks for the judging gig, although producers have also thought about Lenny Kravitz, Roger Daltrey, Mary J. Blige, John Legend and Enrique Iglesias. The inspiration for the show is a Dutch competition in which judges face the opposite direction while contestants sing, unable to see who's warbling at any given moment. Might we recommend Neil Young for that?

Another big name has been popping up, with EW saying Christina Aguilera is a real possibility for a third judge's seat. Hey, why not? It's not like she's busy now, anyway.
