The Voice 2014 judges: Will.i.am is on the attack tonight!

Will.i.am (The Voice 2014)

Will.i.am goes on the attack on The Voice 2014 tonight.

It's the penultimate audition show and Will is on his buzzer more than usual this evening as he stops being so laid back and picks up artist after artist.

Up until now the Black Eyed Peas star has been playing the slow game but that all changes and his other coaches are quick to notice.

"I'm watching him and he's putting a good team together," Kylie Minogue remarks.

"He really knows what he's doing," adds Ricky Wilson.

Explaining his latest tactics, Will says: "I have a new formula, before I was just holding back, right now I'm attacking. It's like 'What? Where did that come from?'"

Meanwhile tricky Ricky finds the going tough tonight as he says no to one act after another.

"It's really hard when I don't want on them, it's not fun facing them saying why you think they're no good… but that's why I'm here," he tells cameras.

Speaking before the series aired, Ricky confessed that he found filming hard at some points.

The Kaiser Chiefs frontman explained: "When you get to know them, learn about their story and you see stuff in them that you recognise in yourself, it can get tough.

"I had my big break 10 years ago but I still recognise their drive and determination."

The Voice 2014 blind auditions air tonight from 7:10PM on BBC One.
