The Black Eyed Peas rapper has said he would be up for judging on the sixth series and beyond, but only if the original UK judging line-up also make a return.
This year, will.i.am is joined by newcomers Paloma Faith and Boy George, as well as returning judge Ricky Wilson, who has previously said the current series will be his last.
Boy George’s appointment on the panel was particularly controversial, as he replaced original judge Sir Tom Jones, who publicly blasted the show, after only learning from producers that he wouldn’t be returning to ‘The Voice’ with 48 hours’ notice.
However, it was recently suggested that when the singing contest gets its new home on ITV in 2017, Sir Tom could be making a return to the panel.
Paloma Faith recently hit out at the show for its gender imbalance, as over its five series it has never had more than one woman among its team of four judges.
