Deezer’s streaming data revealed that Will.I.Am is the most streamed judge of all the UK reality shows with 80% more streams than fellow judge Sir Tom Jones and talent show rival Gary Barlow.

However, Will.I.Am’s streaming success seems to be limited to his solo career as the data showed that Take That pipped Black Eyed Peas to the post with 3% more streams overall.

Comparing the line-up of judges from all six seasons of The Voice UK and across all thirteen series of the X Factor UK, Deezer identified Brit Award winner Paloma Faith from The Voice as the most streamed female judge, with 11% more streams than chart topper Jessie J and 41% more streams than The X Factor’s most streamed judge Rita Ora.

Rita Ora came out on top when pitted against her fellow X Factor judges, beating former Destiny’s Child star and ex panellist Kelly Rowland, with nearly three times as many streams. Favourites Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl came in third and fourth place respectively, leaving Gary Barlow trailing behind and just making it into the top five.

Showing these posts are as beneficial to the judges as the contestants, with streams of The Voice UK judging newcomer Gavin Rossdale more than trebling this weekend following his Saturday night debut on the show.
