Pharrell joins The Voice US panel

Pharrell Williams has signed up to be a coach on the new series of The Voice in the US.

NBC has announced the Happy singer will be joining the singing talent show for its seventh season.

Pharrell tweeted: "This is going to be so fun."

Voice coach Adam Levine tweeted Pharrell to say: "Welcome to the circus dude!"

Last year saw Shakira and Usher replace Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera on the judging panel, alongside Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

Cee Lo and Christina were thought to be taking a break from the show, as they did during the fourth season, but Cee Lo recently announced he will not return to the panel as he wants to focus on his own music.

Pharrell was an adviser to team Usher on season four of The Voice, and performed the song Blurred Lines with Robin Thicke on the show last May.

NBC said it would announce the rest of the coaching line-up for the show at a later date.
