Cee Lo’s Vegas Residency Is Really Happening

LAS VEGAS, NV - FEBRUARY 18:  (EXCLUSIVE COVERAGE)  Recording artist Cee Lo Green (L) performs with a showgirl from the Jubilee! production show at the Keep Memory Alive foundation's "Power of Love Gala" celebrating Muhammad Ali's 70th birthday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena February 18, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

If you read about the possibility of a Cee Lo Vegas residency back in December and have been avoiding the story ever since, for fear that the magic wouldn't happen, then you are in luck: "Cee Lo Green Presents Loberace" (not a typo) is now official!  It'll kick off August 29 at Planet Hollywood, at least 28 shows are planned, and they will reportedly feature “mind-twisting magic and sexified showgirls.” Presumably, a piano and some music will also be involved, since this is a Vegas residency featuring Cee Lo. And Vulture would bet a significant number of Internet points (or chips, if we had them) that his sequined Super Bowl robe will make an appearance. Recycling! Sequins don't grow on trees.
