Cee Lo Green Dishes About 'The Voice' Contestants & Fellow Mentors: "We Are Like a Family"
Last night after Erin Martin and Tony Vincent were sent packing on The Voice, Cee Lo Green opened up to reporters about what he'll miss most about mentoring them.
He explained, "Erin makes me laugh. She is so unique and so wonderfully strange like me. I'll miss having that side of myself around, you know what I'm saying?"
As for Tony, Cee Lo said he felt "connected to him like a brother." Plus, they celebrated the birth of his new baby and were "just really good friends."
In fact, Cee Lo sings the highest of praises for Tony. "I am humbled by his ability. I am humbled by his experience, his wisdom, and his veteran-ism. He has accomplished something in the arts that I have not. He has conquered Broadway and made himself worthy to be here and get to this point."
Cee Lo also opened up about working with his fellow mentors, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Christina Aguilera. Actually, he refers to them like a family! "I mean," he explained, "we kind of opened up to each other so immediately."
He added, "We basically live together. It's called 'trailer land' or something. Like, all of our trailers are next door, so I may come out and do a little dance... so like we're family. When my kids are out or Carson or Christina's kids are here, there's a PlayStation in an area for them. So we are like family, man. Don't let the banter and all of that fool you because it's definitely for the sake of good television. We are definitely good friends."
