Pharrell Williams will coach The Voice for season 7

The Voice just announced that Pharrell Williams will coach season seven of the NBC competition series, replacing Cee Lo Green, who recently quit the show.

Once again, the show has been able to secure a major, current singer to serve as a coach; Williams’ record “Girl” is currently #6 on the Billboard 200. As a bonus, he wears large and sometimes absurd hats.

If the same schedule holds, the other coaches would be Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, and Blake Shelton. NBC said in a press release that “[t]he rest of the coach line-up will be confirmed at a later date.”
