We’ve known for a while now that CeeLo Green is not returning to The Voice for Season 7, and now we know Pharrell Williams will be filling the spot in his red chair. We can’t wait to see the Happy singer push his button, and we’ve got to wonder, will a new judge also be sitting in Christina Aguilera‘s seat?
Pharrell To Replace CeeLo on ‘The Voice’ Season 7
CeeLo out, Pharrell in!
Everyone is buzzing about Chris Martin joining The Voice tonight, March 31, as the new key advisor, but now, we have even more reason to be happy — Pharrell Williams will be taking a permanent seat on the Season 7 judges’ panel!
NBC teased its followers on March 31 with silly tweets leading up to the big announcement, finally tweeting the big news, with the hashtag #NewVoiceCoach.

The announcement comes on the day of the second round of battles, which is a switch-up from past seasons. We love all of these new and exciting changes on The Voice!
Will Christina Aguilera Also Be Replaced?
No official announcement has been made by Christina’s camp or NBC, but here’s what we do know: the singer is pregnant and engaged so she might just want to take some time off.
At the offset of Season 6, HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY reported that The Voice producers are planning on replacing Christina Aguilera. “They will have to replace Christina,” our source EXCLUSIVELY told us. “She will be focused on her upcoming child and will not be able to focus on the demands that The Voice puts on the judges.” Executive producer also shed some light on the situation, adding, “No one can be permanent; it depends on their schedules.”
Planning a wedding and having a baby girl make for one busy schedule so we wouldn’t be surprised is Christina follows CeeLo’s lead and takes the season off.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think about CeeLo’s replacement, Pharrel? And do you hope that Christina returns to The Voice?
