'The Voice's Jaz Ellington could have a "huge career", his mentor will.i.am believes.
The singer - who last week made it through the first live show - is being flooded with offers since his first audition, and will is keen to talk him up to his pals in the US.
A source told The Sun: "There is a huge buzz around Jaz both here and in America. Everyone wants him. He has a unique voice and a huge career ahead of him.
"will is always working non-stop and he really thinks Jaz could have a huge career."
However, his backstage behaviour is believed to have irritated others on the show who think he has to put in the hard work before he succumbs to his own hype.
A source added: "Jaz has already become a bit of a diva. He needs to learn that the way to become a big star is hard work - not acting like one."
Following last week's battle between will.i.am's acts and Sir Tom Jones', Danny O'Donoghue and Jessie J will be the focus of next weekend's programme.
