Cee Lo Green has revealed that he won't be returning to The US Voice.

The Forget You singer made the announcement on The Ellen Degeneres Show, which is due to air on NBC later today (February 19).

Green explained to the chat show host: "I'm going to continue my relationship with NBC. I have a television show development deal with them as well and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year. But yeah, I'm going to miss The Voice too. So I'm not coming back guys."

A shocked DeGeneres replied: "Oh, you're not coming back at all? I did not know that!"

He added: "I don't want to wear out my welcome there. I have so many other things that I want to do. I haven't released an album in four years. I'm almost done with my album."

Usher and Shakira are set to fill in for Green and Christina Aguilera when the singing competition resumes next week. However, a permanent replacement for Green has not yet been revealed. 

Season six of The Voice starts on February 24 with Usher, Shakira, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on NBC.
