Yes, we're talking about you – Rita Ora and will.i.am.

“Rita talks mostly to Will because I think they talk a lot about music and they work together as well so they have a working relationship as well,” Tom told heat backstage at the BBC Music Awards.

“And they're doing a lot of this [starts typing on an imaginary phone] and Ricky [Wilson] and I aren't doing a lot of that, we're concentrating on what is going on the stage.”

Maybe Rita's making notes about the acts?

But Tom admitted* the Voice* producers are pretty laid back and that any tellings off are few and far between, adding:

“I think Will gets ticked off about it from time to time but Will thinks about a lot of things at once I think he has this back of doing that. I don't think I could do that, I have to concentrate on what I'm doing at the moment.”
