Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am has signed on to coach and judge wannabe stars on U.K. talent show The Voice.
The I Gotta Feeling hitmaker recently announced his group is planning a hiatus, so each band member could take time to concentrate on solo ventures - and it appears will.i.am is already gearing up for his next project.
He'll be joining singer Jessie J as one of the four advisors on the TV talent show when it launches in Britain next spring (12).
He tells the BBC, "IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m proud to be doing The Voice U.K. because the U.K. was the first place I saw success. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the place IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m the most creative outside of home."
