Rapper/producer Will.I.Am will join the U.K. edition of The Voice as a coach, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“I’m proud to be doing The Voice U.K. because the U.K. was the first place I saw success,” the Black Eyed Peas front man said. “It’s the place I’m the most creative outside of home.”
As an artist and a producer, Will.I.Am has won seven Grammys, sold more than 58 million singles worldwide and worked such musicians as Michael Jackson, Rihanna and Usher.
The Voice U.K. debuts on BBC1 next spring.
