Cee Lo Green Ascends To The Top.

Elektra recording artist Cee Lo Green has reached to the top with his hit single, "Fool For You (Feat. Melanie Fiona)."  The track – featured on Green's blockbuster solo album, "THE LADY KILLER" – is currently #1 at Urban AC radio outlets nationwide.  Remarkably, the ascension of "Fool For You" comes more than 9 months after its arrival at the format.


The single's stunning success marks the latest accomplishment in what is shaping up as a truly triumphant year for Green.  The Grammy Award-winning superstar will celebrate with an array of high-profile TV appearances, kicking off with a performance at the 85th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, airing Thursday, November 24th on NBC from 9 am to 12 pm EST (check local listings). Tuesday, November 29th will see Green joining the star-studded musical line-up performing on CBS's 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, slated for broadcast at 10 pm ET.  The following evening, Cee Lo will be among the revelers at the 2011 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting, scheduled to air Wednesday, November 30th as part of NBC's annual Christmas In Rockefeller Center festivities (check local listings).  Last, but very certainly not least, Season 2 of NBC's smash vocal competition series, The Voice, will premiere on February 5th, immediately following Super Bowl XLVI.


In addition to his many TV appearances, Cee Lo will light up the big screen in one of 2012's most anticipated films, Sparkle.  The film – a remake of the 1976 classic – co-stars Green alongside a star-studded cast that also features Whitney Houston, Jordin Sparks, Mike Epps, and Derek Luke.  The Sony Pictures Entertainment film is currently in production with release information to be announced shortly.

The upcoming slate of TV appearances comes hot on the heels of Green's recent guest roles on both NBC's Parenthood and the Season 7 premiere of the Fox animated series, American Dad.  Green has also performed on a wide range of TV series and specials in the months following the release of "THE LADY KILLER," including NBC's Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CBS' Late Show with David Letterman, Comedy Central's The Colbert Report, ABC's Good Morning America, WWE's SummerSlam, the nationally syndicated Oprah Winfrey Show and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, E's Chelsea Lately, MTV's The Seven, and VH1's Jump Start Live, among others. 


In addition, Cee Lo was among the performers on such awards spectaculars as the 2010 Soul Train Awards, the 2011 Billboard Music Awards, and of course, the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, where he received the "Best Urban/Alternative Performance" Grammy honoring his groundbreaking hit single, "F**k You."  What's more, Green also stole the show with his multi-colored performance of the Grammy-winning song, featuring special guests Gwyneth Paltrow and the Jim Henson Company Puppets.
