The competition between the Coaches is heating up. Tomorrow’s fourth episode will show will.i.am employing some sly tactics in a bid to secure an Artist in the brand new episode of The Voice UK. In true will.i.am style he admitted ‘I’ve picked up some tactics along the way, but I am still tic tac fresh”. But Jessie reckons Will is simply desperate to win this series….
During the performance of one Artist on Saturday night we will see will.i.am repeatedly tell the other coaches he isn’t going to be hitting the red button and turning. However with just seconds left of the performance, and after ensuring none of the other Coaches would be turning, Will pushes his button (to the surprise of all three other Coaches) for the sixth person this series.
Danny says: ‘I looked over at Will and he was like “No I’m not going, I’m not going” and then bam, straight down [hits button]. So yeah, it’s on, it’s absolutely on now.’
Will.i.am later admitted, ‘I was a bit sneaky as I told everyone ‘No’ just to see if they were gonna go.’
And it seems Will’s tactics worked a treat, because at the end of the audition Danny admitted to the Artist, ‘the only reason I didn’t turn around is because I am an idiot.’
Watch ‘sneaky willie’ in action this Saturday, 20th April at 8.20pm on BBC One.
