Whoa! Huge Plans For Pharrell Williams!
From Singing, fashion and producing, Pharrell Williams can easily be called one of Hollywood’s top triple threats. And now, the star is adding even more to his already extensive resume.
On Monday morning, NBC’s The Voice confirmed via Twitter that the “Happy” singer will be joining Season 7 of the hit singing competition show.
“Okay, we can OFFICIALLY say it! WE ARE SO #HAPPY to announce PHARRELL WILLIAMS = #NewVoiceCoach for SEASON 7,” they wrote.
Following the announcement, the 40-year-old tweeted:
“This is going to be so fun,” Williams wrote.
Voice coach Adam Levine also writing, “Welcome to the circus dude!”
Pharrell garnered a lot of attention last year after he released the hot track for Despicable Me 2. The song went on to be nominated for an Oscar, but was beat out by Frozen’s “Let It Go.”
The Voice’s executive producer Mark Burnett also responded to the news, “I am thrilled to have Pharrell come back to The Voice family, and this time…as a coach. Continuing in The Voice tradition of having the biggest and most current music stars as coaches, Pharrell fits perfectly.”
Former coach CeeLo Green announced back in February that he was not going to be returning to the show. “I’m going to continue my relationship with NBC. I have a television show development deal with them and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year,” Green said during the Ellen DeGeneres Show. “But yeah, I’m going to miss The Voice, too. I’m not coming back, guys.”
It’s unsure what other shake ups will happen but according to reports, new names will be released sooner than later.
