"We are extremely honored to be working with the infinitely talented will.i.am on this exciting ET milestone."

The ET theme song was originally composed by Michael Mark in 1981 and was re-orchestrated in 1990 and 1994 by former ET host and musician John Tesh.

In addition to his multiple Grammy Awards and an Emmy Award, will.i.am is the recipient of two NAACP Image Awards, the BMI President's Award and a 2008 Webby Award.
