Pharrell Williams is coming to “The Voice,” Season 7, and he already has big fans among the coaches.
“Pharrell [is] very exciting to be working with,” Blake Shelton told Access Hollywood’s Liz Hernandez on Thursday night.
But, Blake couldn’t miss getting in a little quip about Pharrell’s recent red carpet and award show look.
“I love his music and his hat,” Blake said.
“I love everything about him,” Adam Levine, who paired up with Blake for the interview, chimed in. “He’s a wonderful man”
Host Carson Daly had his own thoughts on Pharrell joining.
“I’m hoping [for] free Arby’s,” Carson said, making reference to the restaurant chain that had fun with Pharrell on Twitter when he first debuted his hat at the 2014 Grammys, and later bought his hat in a charity auction.
“I think it doesn’t get better than that,” Carson continued, on a serious note. “I mean what a year — just when you thought Robin Thicke was having a great year.”
“The Voice” host said Pharrell is a perfect fit for the NBC show.
“He’s the man and as great as he is a musician, I mean, he’ll be a perfect fit with our family,” Carson said. “It’s just not anybody who’s big in music works well in ‘The Voice.’ It’s the right type of person and he fits,” Carson said. “He’s fits our mold perfectly. We’re so excited.”
