Cee Lo Green Previews His 'Monumentous' Vegas Show, Performs on 'Today' (VIDEO)

Matt Lauer talks to Cee Lo Green about Las Vegas on 'Today'Cee Lo Green is gearing up for a run in Las Vegas, which earned him the nickname 'Lo-berace' from Matt Lauer Friday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC). Green, a hit-making singer and judge on the singing contest show 'The Voice,' is hoping the run will be a big deal for fans who might not be too familiar with the city's big shows.

"I wanted to do something new and fresh for this generation," Green told Lauer. "I don't think anybody from our generation has got the opportunity to do something monumentous like that. And so I would like to do something exceptional, you know. The way that I feel about myself and the way that my career is going, it makes sense."

Green's penchant for strange costumes and theatrical stagings, and his band of what appear to be supermodels, should be a good fit for Vegas. Perhaps as a tribute to Sin City, Green performed 'Bright Lights Bigger City,' though he did change the words to "bright lights in New York City."

Hello Gerri

I don't get Cee Lo. How did this man ever get famous. HE CAN'T SING. Everytime I have come across him singing live on TV, he sounds terrible and can never reach his high notes. I JUST DON'T GET IT. Well, in this day and age, younger generations do not know REAL MUSIC because look at what they grew up on.

What is "Real Music" - just what YOU like? CeeLo isn't just a singer, he's a great producer, as well. And as for not hitting his 'high notes,' he's an intelligent man - he doesn't utlilize high notes - he knows his limitations. He's trying to bring back entertainment from an earlier generation...no, you 'just don't get it!'
