“Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof…because I’m happy!” Pharrell Williams, the “Happy” man himself will be the new judge on the popular NBC singing competition The Voice. The new arrival of Pharrell should make the 12 million viewers and counting eager for the new season.

Pharrell, a Virginia Beach native will be replacing Cee-Lo Green for season 7, who made it clear in February that he would not be returning.

NBC tweeted confirmation on Monday that Pharrell will be joining the show as coach. “Okay, we can OFFICIALLY say it! WE ARE SO #HAPPY to announce PHARRELL WILLIAMS= #NewVoiceCoach for SEASON 7,” the tweet read.

The official announcement made many fans who have been awaiting Williams’s addition to the show. In 2013, one of the show’s coaches, Usher, brought Williams in as a guest mentor for his team and singer brought it! So much that it prompted the New York Magazine’s Vulture column to headline one of their recaps, “Pharrell should be a coach.”

This has a phenomenal 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.

“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 and existing family member home,” said Paul Telegdy of NBC Entertainment.

On Monday Williams retweeted the NBC tweet adding: “This is going to be so fun.”
