"Will.i.am is so creative. He's kept music going. He's a large reason why music sounds the way it does today - a very innovative producer. A great guy. Great dancer," she said.

"I've heard about his work on The Voice and how he's won over the entire nation and beyond, which I think his lovely. He's a superstar."
