On New Year's Eve, Cee Lo Green rang in 2012 by visiting Times Square, hanging out with Carson Daly, and then brutalizing John Lennon's "Imagine" before a TV audience of millions.
It was a disaster. So the next day, he fled south to Miami Beach for the Orange Drive Music Festival where he (thankfully) did not reprise Lennon's classic song.
He just threw on a purple track suit, smiled wide, and put on a "Crazy" show alongside Cobra Starship and Samantha Ronson.
