Flamboyant neo-soul singer, Cee-Lo Green, and pop rock crooner, Adam Levine, couldn’t be any further from one another on the vocalist scale. However, the duo are reportedly in serious discussions to join ‘The Voice,’ NBC’s new singing competition series, as judges.

Lenny Kravitz, John Legend and Mary J. Blige were also considered for the series, and word is a major A-list female singer is being courted to join the show, which Carson Daly will host. Things are in the early stages, and nothing has been confirmed, according to ‘The Hollywood Reporter.’

Before you groan and roll your eyes over the prospect of another music competition reality series, this one is a little bit different. Reportedly, ‘The Voice’ is looking for pop stars instead of industry execs to fill the esteemed judge’s chairs, since they have name recognition along with the benefit of real-life experience.

The show is based on a Dutch series where contestants perform while the judges face the other direction, with their view of the singer obstructed, allowing the judges to consider the singer’s voice and the voice alone without regard to image, look or style. ‘The Voice’ is also featuring a cutting edge audition process, allowing any singer with a web cam to audition.
