Pharrell Williams joins 'The Voice' as coach in season 7

Posted on


As if it hasn’t already been clear that Pharrell Williams is everywhere this year, here’s further proof.

The Grammy winner and Oscar-nominated musician has signed on to coach the seventh cycle of NBC’s high-rated reality competition The Voice. The rest of the coaching line-up (which in season six includes mainstays Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, and sophomores Shakira and Usher) will be announced later.

Pharrell has appeared on The Voice before, serving as an adviser to Usher’s team during season 4. He also performed his song “Blurred Lines” (ever heard it?) on an episode last year alongside Robin Thicke, also a former adviser on the show.

Pharrell is the first confirmed coach for the seventh cycle, due to air this fall (season six ends on May 20). Earlier this year, coach Cee Lo Green confirmed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that he would not be returning to his rotating chair for another round.
