NBC confirmed via TWITTER last night that PHARRELL WILLIAMS has been added as a coach for Season 7 of the reality singing competition.
"Okay, we can OFFICIALLY say it! WE ARE SO #HAPPY to announce PHARRELL WILLIAMS = #NewVoiceCoach for SEASON 7," the tweet read.
"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," said NBC Exec PAUL TELEGDY, adding "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."
