Black Eyed Peas frontman will join Jessie J as two of the four coaches on next spring’s The Voice UK. The seven-time Grammy winner told BBC1, which will air the music competition, “I’m proud to be doing The Voice UK because the UK was the first place I saw success. It’s the place I’m the most creative outside of home.
