Cee Lo Green doesn't hold back when talking about American Idol

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES. HOLLYWOODTV - Cee Lo Green is a judge on "The Voice", NBC's latest reality show in which judges like Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton will find the next big musical star by simply listening to their singing voices. The concept of "blind auditioning" is really what sets this show apart from others. Cee Lo Green says he thinks his show will debut strong and blow it's competition out of the water. Cee Lo, feels so strongly that "The Voice" will succeed that he turned down an offer from Simon Cowell to judge "The X Factor". Cee Lo explains that he was "unfamiliar with the concept of The X Factor" and found the platform of "The Voice" more appealing. Cee Lo then goes on to say that "I knew the name I knew the parties involved, but as an enterprise, I didn't know what made it distinctive enough. Quite honestly, I felt like 'American Idon' and these other entities had run their course."
