The Voice UK: Will.i.am carried the Olympic torch in honour of Michael Jackson
The Voice coach Will.i.am ran for one mile through Taunton this weekend while carrying the Olympic torch, and during his run, he moonwalked in honour of his friend, the late pop legend Michael Jackson.
Will, the 109th runner in the 70-day 8,000 mile torch relay, tweeted throughout the day beginning with one message which read, “Its nuts here in taunton…so much excitement.”
Later, he tweeted, “Crazy energy in the UK. 1nce in a life time experience #runningthetorch in the uK…”
Will also explained that he’s known for over a year that he would carry the iconic torch, but he’d been sworn to secrecy.
Of that he said, “I knew for almost a year now but I was told not to tweet about it. I tweet a lot, so I really had to keep my tweet shut. I can control certain tweets…
“There are some secrets that are coming in the near future that I can’t tweet about or say.”
And of his tribute to Michael Jackson during the run, Will said, “I moonwalked on the torch run. I was thinking ‘me and Michael’ …
“Me and Mike were really close and he would have been proud that I ran the torch, so I thought why not moonwalk it a couple of steps while running with the torch.”
And finally, Will added, “I had some video cameras that were recording me running the torch, so I am going to do a video to my moonwalk moment.
“So I am thinking about doing a little Olympic mash-up.”
