Cee Lo Green Sings 'Piece of My Heart' on Parenthood

'The Voice' judge sings 'Piece of My Heart'

Rolling Stone

Cee Lo Green guest starred as himself on last night's Parenthood as the first big name act to record in the studio recently purchased by two of the show's characters, brothers Adam and Crosby Braverman. The catch: The Luncheonette wasn't quite ready for business, but that didn't matter to Cee Lo, who wanted to record in the same part of the studio once used by Janis Joplin. "That's that fire right there," The Voice judge explained. After nearly 30 frustrating attempts at Joplin's version of "Piece of My Heart" in one day, Cee Lo shows up on day two with a plan to use Erma Franklin's original, more soulful arrangement of the song – and nails it.
