The musical love child of Stevie Wonder, Elton John, and Run DMC, Cee Lo Green transcended genres and performed some of the biggest songs in the new millennium. A founding member of the hip-hop group Goodie Mob, Green helped pioneer the "Dirty South" musical style before reinventing himself as a solo artist. Along the way, Green teamed up with DJ and producer Danger Mouse to form Gnarls Barkley, an experimental musical duo that released the Grammy Award-winning hit "Crazy" (2006), an ode to mental illness set to a Motown-inspired melody. Green topped the charts once again in 2010 with "F**k You!" - an anthem for the heartbroken, peppered with neo-soul harmonies, candid lyrics, and the singer's no-nonsense delivery. The single spawned a spawned an equally successful cover version performed by Gwyneth Paltrow on the critically acclaimed comedy "Glee" (Fox, 2009- ). Fusing retro cool with the avant-garde, Green was always one step ahead of the game, so it was no surprise he was asked to mentor aspiring singers on "The Voice" (NBC, 2011- ), a reality competition series that sought out music's next star. Armed with loads of talent, a flair for showmanship, and a creative streak, Green redefined pop music and ended up as one of his generation's most original artists.
