Will.I.Am has praised his fellow The Voice judge Jessie J.

The Black Eyed Peas member (who seems to be everywhere at the moment) said he has been impressed with her musical achievements and talent.

"I love Jessie, she's like 1,000 volts of excitement. She's always making fun of me," he explained in an interview with British magazine Closer.

"I came in wearing these shades and she told me they looked like tea strainers. I was like, 'Thanks Jessie!'"

The Voice was launched in the US this year features Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton as judges.

It is set to go up against ITV's Britain's Got Talent, which is set for another series - with Simon Cowell back on the judging panel.

Reggie Yates and Holly Willoughby have been confirmed as the hosts for the show.
