Cee Lo reunites with the Muppets on his upcoming holiday album, titled Cee Lo’s Magic Moment. For those who already forgot, The Voice coach partnered up with the colorful, fuzzy creatures at the 2011 Grammys singing his hit “Forget You” alongside Gwenyth Paltrow. For the Christmas album, Cee Lo and his furry friends team up for the cheerful single “All I Need Is Love.” Most of the tunes on the holiday album are reworked classics like Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas,” Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas” and Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas.” Also making guest appearances on Cee Lo’s Magic Moment are fellow Voice coach Christina Aguilera and “Forver Young” crooner Rod Stewart. Cee Lo’s new music will get its own special and he’ll be bringing back his Voice contestants to help him out for it. “I’m actually doing a Christmas special — next week I’m filming,” Cee Lo told Billboard. “And so I’ve invited about, I think it’s going to be 19 in total. All of my people are coming from Season 3 as we stand, and I’m going back to Season 1, getting Nakia, Nicci, Vicci, Jamar, Cheesa.” Listen to a snippet of the Cee Lo and Christina Aguilera’s “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” The full Cee Lo’s Magic Moment tracklist follows the video.
