Singer and producer Pharrell Williams will be the next coach on NBC’s “The Voice.”
Although the competition hasn’t officially named Season 7’s coaches, it can be assumed that Williams will replace CeeLo Green on Season 7 of the show’s fall cycle. NBC’s alternative and late night programming president Paul Telegdy said in a statement released today:
“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,”
“This is going to be so fun,” tweeted Pharrell.
Pharrell is expected to join returning coaches Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.
Shelton and Levine are in the midst of filming Season 6 with Shakira and Usher.
