Pharell Williams Tapped As Coach On 'The Voice'

Talk about news to get happy about!

Pharrell Williams has officially been tapped as a coach for The Voice's seventh season.

"Okay, we can OFFICIALLY say it! WE ARE SO  to announce PHARRELL WILLIAMS =  for SEASON 7," the NB  reality hit's official Twitter account posted on Monday. (Whether or not his infamous Grammys hit will be joining the show as well remains to be seen.)

After the news broke, Pharrell took to Twitter to confirm the casting news, writing, "This is going to be so fun."

But which three other musical superstars will be filling out season seven's other red chairs? The full coach line-up will be announced at a later date.

"It's been a huge year for Pharrell, with recognition for his contribution in the world of music — the Despicable Me franchise soundtracks, his Oscar-nominated song ‘Happy' and his Grammy-winning collaboration with Daft Punk on the breakout dance hit ‘Get Lucky.' His dominance in record sales in 2014, coupled with his incomparable accomplishments in the world of fashion and design, make him an irresistible addition to The Voice family," NBCS boss Paul Telegdy said in a statement. "He has already made a considerable impact as a mentor, drawing on an impressive track record as both a producer and performer. 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."

Pharrell isn't new to The Voice as he served as Usher's guest mentor back in season four!
