Will.i.am joined the Olympic torch relay on Monday, in Taunton UK.
He's now the 109th Olympic torch bearer,
and he tweeted about his experience while he walked the relay.

Black Eyed Peas singer Will.i.am joined the Olympic torch relay across the UK on Monday (May 21). Carrying the Olympic flame through Taunton, Somerset, to the delight of onlookers.

Will.i.am became the 109th torchbearer, and made the most of the opportunity. During the walk Will.i.am tweeted about the experience with one hand while holding the torch in the other. He even performed a brief moonwalk in honor of Michael Jackson.

Afterwards he spoke of how happy he was to take part, and his personal connection to the Olympics.

[Will.i.am, Black Eyed Peas Singer]:
"That was like, a surreal moment. You know I remember in 1984, the Olympics in Los Angeles, and me being a little Will, watching it on TV, wishing I could be at the Olympic Games, and I had that flashback when they handed me the torch to run through Taunton, so it's like a blessed moment, and a surreal moment, and a I-can't-believe-it moment all at the same time."

The Olympic torch is currently on a 70-day tour of the UK, before arriving back in London for the start of the Games.
