Pharrell Williams will replace Cee Lo Green on The Voice
NBC has made the decision that Pharrell Williams will be the new coach on ‘The Voice’. Williams will be replacing Cee Lo Green as the reality-series enters into its seventh season on the network.
Pharrell Williams kicked off 2014 with a bang, his latest Oscar-nominated song “Happy,” was very well received, and his collaboration with Daft Punk helped the album ‘Get Lucky’ win a Grammy.
This isn’t the artist’s first time on the competition series, he was a guest mentor for Usher during the show’s fourth season.
“He has already made a considerable impact as a mentor, drawing on an impressive track record as both a producer and performer,” said Paul Telegdy, the president of alternative and late night programming for NBC Entertainment. “It is a perfect fit for The Voice as we evolve and reach for new heights with this franchise. It feels like we are welcoming an existing family member home.”
