WILL.I.AM Signs On To UK 'The Voice'

 

03 December 2011

Black Eyed Peas performer will.i.am has signed on to act as a coach and judge for wannabe stars on UK talent show 'The Voice'.

Will.i.am recently announced that the group were taking a hiatus so that each band member could take time to concentrate on solo ventures- with will.i.am jumping straight into his!

The rapper will be joining UK Brit It girl Jessie J as one of four celebrity judges on the TV talent show when it launches in Britain next spring (2012).

Will.i.am told BBC, "I'm proud to be doing The Voice U.K. because the U.K. was the first place I saw success. It's the place I'm the most creative outside of home."
