Cee Lo Green has confirmed he'll be back in the spinning chair for the fifth season of U.S. Tv talent show The Voice after a successful residency in Las Vegas.

The Forget You hitmaker stepped down as a judge/mentor on the show so he could concentrate on his music career and fans were worried he wouldn't be back when his Sin City spectacular at the Planet Hollywood resort took off last month (Mar13).

But Green insists he's hoping to do the two shows side by side later this year (13) after Planet Hollywood bosses asked him to extend his Loberace residency.

He says, "It was a seven-week run at Planet Hollywood and it was a success and it went so well that they've already offered to extend the stay, so we may come later on in the year, like October.

"But I start back for season five for The Voice in June."

R&B star Usher replaced Green on the show for its fourth season.
