Pharrell is one 0f 2013/2014s biggest stars thanks to his work with Daft Punk, the film Frozen, and his masterful pop album G I R L. So how does one parlay all that success into a next step?

By appearing on The Voice. (Cue tuba music)

There used to be a time, a wonderful, magical time, when reality TV and singing competitions were for washed up stars, because the relevant, talented ones were focusing on honing their craft and making music.

But that was...a long time ago.

Pharrell is the first person to commit to one of those spin-y chairs for next year. The other three coaches will be announced later on.  It could still be Levine and Shelton, but it could be someone new. Maybe they'll get LeBron James or someone else in the prime of their career.
