CeeLo Green is quitting "The Voice" on NBC, he announced Wednesday on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

"I'm going to continue my relationship with NBC," the singer and "Voice" coach told DeGeneres. "I have a television show development deal with them as well and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year. But yeah, I'm going to miss 'The Voice,' too. I'm not coming back, guys."

A surprised Degeneres then asked: "Oh, you're not coming back at all?"

"I'm not coming back at all," Green confirmed. "I just don't want to wear out my welcome there, you know what I'm saying? I have so many other things that I want to do. I haven't released an album in four years. I'm almost done with my album."

In addition a new album, the 39-year-old Green is preparing to go on tour with Lionel Richie.

Green was one of the four original coaches, alongside Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton. He and Aguilera both sat out Season 4 and Season 6, with Usher and Shakira subbing. Green hasn't coached a winning singer during his run on the show.

"The Voice" returns Feb. 24.

"CeeLo Green has been an instrumental part of the success of 'The Voice' and we deeply appreciate all his contributions," Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming at NBC said in a statement, according to People. "We're looking forward to working with him on other upcoming projects that will tap into both his musical and entertainment expertise."
