What will Cee Lo wear on The Voice live playoffs tonight?

The Voice returns tonight for a two-hour live show. Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera's teams of five will perform and give America the chance to vote for their favorites.

On Monday night's The Voice, singers on Team Adam and Team Blake performed and public voting began. Watch video of some of the best from each team, here.

After tonight's show, Americans will once again vote for their favorites, this time on Team Cee Lo and Team Xtina. The results will be announced by host Carson Daly, during tomorrow's third live show of the week.

NBC's The Voice continues to outperform its competition in its regular time-slot on Monday nights.

This week's show, the first in the live playoffs, continued its strong pattern. According to the latest ratings report, carried by TV website Futon Critic:

"NBC ranks #1 on Monday night among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-49 for a ninth week in a row, last night winning six of six half-hours among those networks.From 8-10:01 p.m. ET, "The Voice" (4.5 rating, 11 share in adults 18-49, 12.2 million viewers overall) delivered the #1 results of the night."

One of the big questions surrounding tonight's program is: What will Cee Lo look like? Update: Cee Lo went all patriotic on last night's show. He donned a crocheted poncho and beret in red, white and blue. And yes, he was coherent. Read: It's all about Trevin Hunte on Team Cee Lo

Monday, Green wore a wig of tight, gelled curls that fell onto his forehead and over his ears. Adam Levine remarked, "You look like the love child of Prince and Rick James."

All in good fun of course, but Cee Lo didn't seem to be in his usual fine form that night. He seemed inattentive and it was clear that Carson Daly noticed.

After singers performed, Green was rarely chosen to provide comments after passing on a chance to do so, with his attention turned elsewhere.

When he did speak, Cee Lo was tentative and sounded spacey. It was his first time in front of a live audience since last week's accusations of criminal sexual assault. Read about that, here.

With his team being front and center tonight, Cee Lo will presumably be more alert and ready to contribute. But what will he be wearing? It's always a kick to contemplate.

As we've seen throughout the three seasons of The Voice Green appreciates a performer who doesn't ignore sartorial splendor in his or her act.

Most recently, on Monday night's live show, 16 year-old Michaela Paige earned kudos from Cee Lo on her overall look, which included a Mohawk hair style of two colors, with some leopard spots inserted for an extra jolt.

We'll know in just a few hours but in anticipation of that, enjoy the video posted below from season one of The Voice, as Cee Lo gets on his best impression of Sly and the Family Stone.
