In the wake of his surprise hit “Forget You,” Atlanta’s Cee Lo Green over the past year has been nabbing plenty of big gigs. Wearing a peacock outfit on the Grammys. Being a judge on NBC’s surprise hit “The Voice.” Changing the lyrics of “Imagine” on Times Square New Year’s Eve.
And now he is set to be on the biggest platform of them all: the Super Bowl half-time show.
Though the news is not “official,” multiple outlets say he will join Madonna on stage in Indianapolis. What will he do? We don’t know yet. But he’ll surely wear something outrageous. And we can only hope he doesn’t pull a Janet Jackson. (Others scheduled to be joining Madonna are LMFAO, Nicki Minaj and MIA.)
Not coincidentally, NBC is airing the second season debut of “The Voice” after the Super Bowl ends so Cee Lo will show up again with his judge cohorts Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera.
In an emailed press release which acknowledges Green’s pending appearance on the half-time show, AllState said it has sponsored a live online concert with Cee Lo at 8 p.m. on Saturday before the Super Bowl.
