Will.i.amBlack Eyed Peas star has signed on to coach and judge wannabe stars on U.K. talent show The Voice.

The I Gotta Feeling hit-maker recently announced his group is planning a hiatus, so each band member could take time to concentrate on solo ventures - and it appears 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.

He tells the 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."
