Cee Lo Green – Vicci Martinez is Signed – Sirius Interview

Cee-Lo Green was one of the first in-studio guests on Shade 45′s new “Sway In The Morning” show last week, and he talked about why he took himself off the Rihanna tour.

The Voice judge also reveals that Top 4 contestant, Vicci Martinez has been signed to a record contract.

So far, besides the winner Javier Colon, that’s Vicci and Xenia who are known to have contracts. Just a little tidbit in case anybody out there still cares about The Voice contestants.

This next clip has Cee Lo talking about his fellow judges, Christina Augilera, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. Now I see your interest piquing!

    14 people and still Xtina looks and acts terrible on The Voice. As one website like to say, she need a new set of gays to make her over.

    I liked Xenia. I thought she had an interesting voice though she has zero personality on stage. Vicci I did not like hr voice at all. She had a lot of the goat quality that the judges from The Voice seemed to like. Not half as much as goat girl though. I can’t remember her name. The one with the long blond hair and she sang like a goat. Vicci I had to change the channel a few times. I’m surprised Xenia and Vicci got signed before Dia Frampton. Especially Vicci

    Very glad the Vicci got a contract. I can’t wait to see what kind of music she creates.

    I never did get Dia, but I guess America did. Most likely she will be getting a contract soon. It’s hard to ignore iTunes sales.

    And we thought idol was over-populating the field while sony was at the helm. Now Universal have signed (that we know of) 5 CHR/HAC voices to compete after the ever shrinking consumer dollar. And before any of these kids can get a toe-hold, X-Factor will be adding to the mix.

    Looks like before to long the new meme will be: “yup he played small gigs and worked his butt off, he didn’t do it the old way by being on a reality show”.

    Congratulations to Vicci, this makes me happy. I like Vicci’s voice & she has a lot of spunk and personality. I’m interested to see what they come up with for her, I’ll definitely take a listen.

  • cwm

    Great for Vicci! She was one of my favorites, so I’m happy for her.

    And 14 people were around Christina to fuss with her makeup, hair, and clothes, and they couldn’t do any better than that? Oy. She needs a new team.

    Thanks for the update MJ. Glad to hear that Vicci is being signed. Even though her musical preference isn’t really my style, I always found her performances to be the most impressive. She’s a bit of a throwback to the 80s and 90s, so I hope she can find a producer that makes her more current.

    I might be in the minority here, but I’m really curious to see what happens with a lot of the performers on this show. Having a show where the judges/coaches are heavily invested in their contestants definitely influences the viewers to care about them too. But it doesn’t hurt that a lot of the contestants were very talented and appear to write a lot of their own music. I’ll definitely be looking out for Xenia, Javier, Dia, Vicci and Beverly to see what happens to them!

    My TLo boys! And yes, I always agree with them, she needs a new set of gays because she looks horrible. And those 14 people around her, need to be fired.

    But I’m happy for Vicci. She seemed cool, and I liked her voice and attitude.

    I dont think UMG realizes that of all the people theyre signing only one, most likely Scotty, is going to have a lot of success.

    theres gonna be some serious reality show fatigue with all of these shows going off at once. i think finding a succesful artist coming out of these shows is probably gonna end or has ended with Scotty. these shows have already casted all of their “types” i dont wanna see anymore of the same types running around on these shows, the originals are enough. but that might just be me.

  • sr4mjc

    I liked some of Vicci’s Pre-Voice stuff. Cool, good for her.

  • songsungblue

    I like Vicci, but I really LOVE Xenia. Still, Vicci lives locally, and a few of my friends have seen her in clubs in Seattle, and have enjoyed her sets. I think she might have been a case of not translating quite as well on TV.

  • MissMyEm

    Good for Vicci. She, Frenchy and Javier were the only finalists I enjoyed.

  • abbysee

    I can’t remember her name. The one with the long blond hair and she sang like a goat.

    Carmen Rasmussen.

    I’m always surprised when Cee Lo is so quiet and soft-spoken in interviews. His personality seems so flamboyant and over-the-top and loud that it’s such a disconnect when his voice doesn’t match.

    This is an awesome comment and you should feel awesome for making it. I always had a soft spot for her, but man, that vibrato.

    Off to Google to find out what Carmen is up to these days!
