“The Voice” fans have another reason to be happy now that Pharrell Williams has been announced as the new coach on the popular singing competition.
The show’s official Twitter handle dropped the first hint on Monday (March 31) when show reps posted a pic of four empty coach chairs, with Williams’ famous buffalo hat sitting atop one of the chairs. A few minutes later, they spilled the beans. (Not to brag, but MTV News called it last month.)

“Okay, we can OFFICIALLY say it! WE ARE SO #HAPPY to announce PHARRELL WILLIAMS = #NewVoiceCoach for SEASON 7,” read a tweet from @NBCTheVoice.
“This is going to be so fun,” the “Happy” singer and hit producer responded.
Williams will fill the seat left open by original show coach Cee Lo Green, who announced he will not return to the show in February. P will join Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine, who was the first to welcome Williams to the family.
“@Pharrell Welcome to the circus dude,” the Maroon 5 singer tweeted.
@Pharrell Welcome to the circus dude!
