Pharrell arrived at the Dolby Theatre, in Hollywood, CA, sporting his famous "Smokey the Bear" hat to rehearse his hit song "Happy."

The infectious song continues to have the world feeling "Happy". Actress Kate Hudson, actor/comedian Jamie Fox and his daughter attended the rehearsal and couldn’t help but get out of their seats and dance enthusiastically up and down the aisles.

The song is nominated for Best Original Song for the film "Despicable Me 2." The winner of this award will be announced March 2 at the 86th Academy Awards ceremony.

Pharrell has had several number-one hits on the Hot 100 charts, but "Happy" is the first for him as a solo artist. To top it off, the super-producer launched a 24-hour music video on 24hoursofhappy.com which features several celebrity cameos from Steve Carell to Jimmy Kimmel.
