*Cee-Lo Green was inevitably asked what he thought of Gwyneth Paltrow’s performance of his tune “F*** You” on “Glee” Tuesday:

“I think she did awesome,” he told UsMagazine.com Wednesday at the ABSOLUT Glimmer event in NYC.

Paltrow, 38, who sang a clean version of the hit, “was great,” he added. “I didn’t really realize how accomplished she was as a vocalist. She sounded great. She sounded better than me!”

The actress also performed a mash-up of “Singing in the Rain” and Rihanna’s “Umbrella.” Watch/listen to both renditions below.
