Pharrell Williams has found one more thing to get happy about these days. The singer has now officially been tapped as a coach for 'The Voice's seventh season, following Cee Lo Green's departure last month.
"Okay, we can OFFICIALLY say it! WE ARE SO to announce PHARRELL WILLIAMS = for SEASON 7," the NBC reality hit's official Twitter account posted earlier today to all of its followers.
And Williams wasn't too far behind with a special confirmation tweet of his own, expressing his excitement of nabbing a place in the trademark red chairs. "This is going to be so fun," he remarked. And others seem to agree.
"It's been a huge year for Pharrell, with recognition for his contribution in the world of music — the 'Despicable Me' franchise soundtracks, his Oscar-nominated song ‘Happy' and his Grammy-winning collaboration with Daft Punk on the breakout dance hit ‘Get Lucky.' His dominance in record sales in 2014, coupled with his incomparable accomplishments in the world of fashion and design, make him an irresistible addition to 'The Voice' family," NBC boss Paul Telegdy said in a statement.
He continued: "He has already made a considerable impact as a mentor, drawing on an impressive track record as both a producer and performer. It is a perfect fit for 'The Voice' as we evolve and reach for new heights with this franchise. It feels like we are welcoming an existing family member home."
However, this won't be the star's first time on the series, having served as Usher's guest mentor back in Season 4.
Meanwhile, the rest of the season's coaching panel has yet to be confirmed, though we wouldn't be surprised to see Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton sign up for another round. Or perhaps Shakira and Usher will decide to take the reigns once more. Only time will tell.
Let's just hope Williams' hat collection is ready for all this.
