Will.i.am Black Eyed Peas

Will.i.am was hosting a free solo show at London's Royal Albert Hall when he brought his bandmates on stage to perform their hits, including I Gotta Feeling and Where Is The Love? for the first time since 2011, when they went on hiatus.

Fergie was not in attendance and her parts were sung by Lydia Lucy, who Will.i.am mentored on the most recent season of U.K. talent show The Voice. Fergie's absence has sparked speculation she has gone solo permanently and won't be returning to the band.

Will.i.am told the crowd, "I wanted to give you guys a snap shot of this. Three years ago I did The O2 by myself, it was great but that s**t was boring cause these guys weren't there... I love you motherf**kers. This feels really good to be here with the people who were the seed of everything."

The Black Eyed Peas star has spent at least 10 days every month between October and March in London since 2012 for his job as a judge on the U.K. version of The Voice and he likes the country so much he wants to start a family there.

"Because the UK is right bang slap in the middle of the world, and there’s people from Romania, the Middle East, Nigeria, Spain, Germany, everyone goes to the UK. I feel at home there," he tells Britain's Telegraph magazine. "When I do have a family, I would like to live there and raise a family there."

He says he isn't interested in living in the capital and would prefer neighbouring county Surrey because he likes "the idea of grass and land", but he admits the prospect of family is not in his immediate future because he is currently single.
