NBC’s ‘The Voice’ season 5: Some Cee Lo Green silliness (video)

Take a look -We all know that Cee Lo Green is quite a character on “The Voice,” and over the years he’s developed a habit of being the only coach with a recurring sidekick. On the show’s second season, it was Purrfect the Cat who was spotted with him from time to time, and he followed that up with a bird. As for this season, rumor has it that he actually had a boa constrictor that he tried to use for some spots, but it wasn’t quite so cute and cuddly and it may not be shown at all.

However, let’s go back to the origins of Purrfect during season 2. Was she the only animal that “auditioned” for the part? The video below is both completely silly and also kind of funny, since it features a variety of different creatures “trying out” to land the part of Cee Lo’s coveted sidekick on the show. There is a rather enormous dog, a snake named “Banana,” a bunch of assorted canines, and of course Purrfect who all tried to find a spot on the show, but only one ended up making the cut.

Cee Lo seems to understand that part of what makes “The Voice” successful is actually that there are some silly / funny moments that take place. Not everything has to be taken a thousand-percent seriously, and it’s ultimately okay to let loose and have a little bit of fun sometimes. This is entertainment, and that is why the ratings here are much higher than other singing shows.

What do you think about this video, and are you excited to see some more of what Cee Lo has up his sleeve on “The Voice” this season? Click here if you want to read about some more highlights of the year when it comes to contestants, and we will have some more to share soon.
