"It's an honor for me to be able to help mold a malleable and new talent in such a fashion as 'The Voice'," Cee Lo said in a statement. "Being a coach on 'The Voice' is a substantial responsibility, and I take it with sincerity and distinction."

A total of four coaches will be a part of the "The Voice," a reality singing competition which will feature mentors picking singers during blind auditions. Once the coaches have their teams, they will bring in their own songwriters, producers and industry pals to help their teams evolve, NBC announced.
