The 'Forget You' hitmaker was taken to see the singing siblings - formed by late King of Pop Michael Jackson - when he was a child and can remember the show clearly.
He said: "My first gig was The Jacksons in 1984. I must've been five or six and I was completely inspired, blown away. They were such a powerful unit of performers, they were dazzling.
Cee Lo is also a huge fan of Iggy Pop, who he believes to be the "ultimate American icon".
He explained: "Iggy Pop is the ultimate American icon, like the anti-working class hero, this drugged-up rebel kid with too much energy who's thumbing his nose at the world.
"I love Iggy Pop. Everything he's ever done."
