Pharrell Williams seems to just keep on winning! He's landed himself in the headlines as the newest edition to "The Voice" family. Although it is bittersweet to see CeeLo Green go, how "Happy" are we to see Pharrell step right on in and fill his seat. E Online reported the story on Monday March 31 that Pharrell Williams is officially the new voice coach on the NBC reality hit.
It was back in February that CeeLo Green made the announcement during an interview on The Ellen Degeneres show that after four seasons with the NBC voice competition show he would not be returning. He stated that although he will not be returning to the show, he and NBC have some other arrangements and plans up their sleeve.
"I have a television show development deal with them and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year,"stated Green.
But even with Green gone, the show must go on and as of right now, it is continuing on with Adam Levine, Usher, Blake Shelton and Shakira. Levine took a moment to congratulate and welcome Pharrell via Twitter, "welcome to the circus dude," he tweeted.
Now, not only is he an Oscar-nominated artist for his song "Happy" off the 'Despicable Me' soundtrack, a Grammy award winning artist for his song "Get Lucky" with band 'Daft Punk,' and top-charter for his recent album release G I R L, now he can also add voice coach for "The Voice." Winning!
