One of the original judges is leaving "The Voice." 

CeeLo Green sits down with Ellen DeGeneres and Lionel Richie for Wednesday's "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," where he reveals he's leaving his coaching gig to tour with Richie. 

Check out the video above to find out why Green wants to leave the singing series "for good."

While it seems like CeeLo's departure from "The Voice" is bittersweet, it does sound like he's excited to get back to making music and touring.

"I didn’t mean to drop the bomb today," the "Forget You" crooner said about the big announcement. Richie adding, "Here's the good news. He'll be with me, on the road. Like come on!"

We'll definitely miss the eccentric singer on the NBC show -- do you think they'll have Usher or Shakira take his place or should they swap someone else in?
