will.i.am has been a superstar ambassador of The Voice UK brand since he joined in 2012. 

After taking part every year in the adult version of ITV’s hit talent show, the Black Eyed Peas front man, 43, decided to find the next generation of talented children to take the world by storm.

And after the success of last year’s search for a star, Will is back with Pixie Lott and Danny Jones, 32, as the coaches. 

At the launch last night however, Emma Willis and the coaches opened up on their fears of returning to The Voice Kids UK. 

The presenter, 42, opened: “I obviously ran back to the show because I loved it so much.

“But I did in the back of my head think, ‘Can we really find kids as talented as we had last year,’ because they were so incredible. 

“I remember Will saying when we did the kids last year they knocked the socks off the adults we had.

I was a little worried we wouldn’t get that because how many talented kids can there be in this country?”

Danny Jones confessed: “I reckon the last series has inspired them all to come out. 

“It’s those kids who saw the show last year planned on doing it. 

“I actually think that this series is definitely better - it’s so good and the characters… I’m buzzing about it.”

Pixie Lott, 27, added: “That was the same worry I had. 

“It must have been that they inspired other kids to think, ‘Hey, I can do that as well’. 

“And for a lot of them it’s the first time they’ve ever performed in front of a big audience.”

Will continued: “It’s not about money, fame or a last chance. This is as pure as it gets, there’s no jadedness. 

“To call it ‘The Voice Kids’ kind of belittles the talent because these kids are better than the adults in my opinion. 

“I enjoy filming The Voice Kids more than The Voice Adults.”

The Black Eyed Peas hitmaker went on to insist how he does love the normal version of the show, but admitted he liked not being “hustled” in the hallway by some children. 

Will continued: What really gets my heart the most is that the kids are stronger than the parents.”

The Emma-fronted show will see kids compete from across the UK for a once-in-a-lifetime prize. 

The lucky winner will bag an impressive £30,000 towards their musical education and an amazing trip to Disneyland Paris. 

But who will have the edge as the show comes to screens?

Tonight’s show sees a whole range of talented children, aged seven to 15 all compete for the big prize.

First up is little Shaney-Lee from “near Bristol Airport” and at just seven, he is one of the show’s tiniest competitors. 

It seems the youngster won the hearts of all the coaches, as well as host Emma. 

At the launch, the presenter admitted: “Wasn’t he the cutest little thing?”

Fans will have to wait until tomorrow night’s debut to see if little Shaney-Lee makes it through.

The Voice Kids UK launches on ITV tomorrow at 7.30pm.
