Cee Lo Green will get a hand from Rod Stewart, the Muppets and other guests when he performs tracks from his upcoming holiday LP at Las Vegas' Planet Hollywood on October 10th.
Dubbed "Cee Lo and Friends," the one-night engagement will also feature past contestants from NBC's The Voice and air later on YouTube. Stewart will most likely join Green for a rendition of "Merry Christmas, Baby," the Johnny Moore-penned classic recorded by artists like B.B. King and Elvis Presley, while the Muppets will probably pop up for a performance of "All I Need Is Love," a new holiday track written by Green. Both tunes appear on Green's upcoming Christmas album Cee Lo's Magic Moment, set for release on October 30th.
"You'll really enjoy it," Green told Rolling Stone recently of the album. "It's definitely a great soulful spin on Christmas classics. I did a version of 'You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.' That says a lot. Just ponder on that." Other guests on the LP include the a cappella group Straight No Chaser, who join Green on "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch," and fellow Voice judge Christina Aguillera, for a "Baby, It's Cold Outside" duet. Green also puts his own spin on "All I Want For Christmas," "White Christmas," "Silent Night" and more.
