Cee Lo Green and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine are in talks with producer Mark Burnett to become judges on NBC’s new singing competition The Voice. Deals have not yet been struck, but according to Entertainment Weekly, NBC hopes to sign contracts with the singers later this week.
The producers are also reportedly in talks with a high-profile female singer – reportedly Christina Aguilera – to join the panel of judges.
The Voice, an American version of a Dutch singing competition series, is set to debut later this year with host Carson Daly. The main difference between The Voice and other singing competitions such as American Idol and The X-Factor is a unique audition process in which the judges cannot see the singers as they perform, allowing them to assess the contestants purely on their skill as vocalists.
