will.i.am was left embarrassed after he accidentally turned his chair around on 'The Voice' on Saturday night (30.01.16).
The Black Eyed Peas singer was busy doodling during 21-year-old bouncer Alaric Green's performance of 'Broken Vow' and managed to hit his button but covered up any potential awkwardness by insisting it must have been fate.
He said: "I think the Lord works in mysterious ways. I think it's like, yo, I mean, dang, if there was ever a ghost that went boo and your hand hit the button."
However, Alaric decided to choose Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson, who also turned his chair for him.
Meanwhile, former Liberty X singer Kevin Simm impressed all four couches with his rendition of Sia's 'Chandelier'.
will.i.am, Ricky, Paloma Faith and Boy George all turned their chairs, and after Kevin admitted his pop past, George said: "Oh you did that 'Just A Little' didn't you? I love that record, it's one of my guilty pleasures - I used to dance around to it when no-one else was looking."
will said: "You're fighting for something you can tell, and in a pop band you don't get a chance to be emotional. This felt like you were trapped in this box and you came out here on 'The Voice' wanting to burn the house down and you did that."
After much consideration, Kevin decided to choose Paloma as his coach.
Other hopefuls who impressed on Saturday's show included 16-year-old Heather Cameron-Hayes, who sang 'Life on Mars' by the late David Bowie and chose to join George's team.
