Pharrell Williams is set to take control of one of the rotating judges’ chairs when The Voice returns for season 7, but the “Happy” singer is no stranger to NBC’s singing competition.

If you’ve found yourself wondering just what kind of judge the Grammy-winning producer will prove to be when the show returns in the fall, the answer may lie in some old footage from Pharrell’s time as an adviser on Team Usher. Check out two clips from season 4 below:

Judging by his style as an adviser, it seems like Pharrell will make for a no-nonsense judge. What remains to be seen is which voices will inspire the singer to turn his chair around — guess we’ll all just have to wait for season 7 to find out what kind of contestants Pharrell is looking for.

The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
