will.i.am accidently presses the button on The Voice - watch the hilarious video

The Voice UK coach will.i.am will be left in an awkward position on Saturday night's episode. Viewers will see the Black Eyed Peas musician press his button by accident during a blind audition. Clearly feeling confident, the American star is seen doodling on his buzzer with a black marker pen as he listens to a singer perform. However, when he tries to wipe it off, will.i.am presses the button by mistake.

It was only last week when the popular coach revealed to his fellow coaches that he "peeked" at a singer from his chair. He told them: "I peeked once. I was asked to not peek." To which a surprised Jennifer Hudson remarked: "You can't peek though. That's not how it goes… I'm not ever tempted to peek, because I want to hear the voice."

Meanwhile, will.i.am also failed to turn around for an artist he'd unknowingly worked with before. Tanya Lucey co-wrote will.i.am's tune THE (The Hardest Ever), but she revealed she had never actually met him until she auditioned for the show. "It was funny, it's such an unusual situation to be in," she told Digital Spy. "This industry, a lot of the time the writers don't meet the artists they collaborate with."
