Pharrell Williams has been tapped as a coach for The Voice Season 7 on NBC, the network announced with an appropriately #happy Tweet today.

Pharrell: New Voice Coach!

NBC posted: "Okay, we can OFFICIALLY say it! WE ARE SO #HAPPY to announce PHARRELL WILLIAMS = #NewVoiceCoach for SEASON 7."

Pharrell added, "This is going to be so fun." Adam Levine, who has been a coach on all six seasons thus far, replied "Welcome to the circus dude!"

NBC boss Paul Telegdy added that "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."

Executive producer Mark Burnett also chimed in on the hit show's latest hire, writing, "I am thrilled to have Pharrell come back to The Voice family."

"This time, as a coach. Continuing in The Voice tradition of having the biggest and most current music stars as coaches, Pharrell fits perfectly."

Pharrell served as Usher's guest mentor back in Season 4, but will likely fill in full-time for Cee Lo Green, who will not return to the show next season.

The Voice's seventh season will debut in the fall, while the sixth season is currently underway, with coaches Levine, Blake Shelton, Shakira and Usher.

Are you #happy Pharrell is coming on board?
