Pharrell Williams was victorious on ‘The Voice’ last season when his protege Sawyer Fredericks won the competition! He totally beat Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine, but does the producer think he’ll win again this season?
The ninth season of The Voice just started, so anything is possible! Pharrell Williams, 42, had his first win last season when Sawyer Fredericks, 16, was announced the winner, but is his winning streak going to continue? Ellen DeGeneres, 57, asked if the 42-year-old thinks he’s going to win again and his answer was a surprising one!

“I don’t,” Pharrell said. “Last year I didn’t go into it thinking that we were going to win. I just went into it thinking I wanna make sure people leave here changed. They come in one way, I want to make sure they leave lifted and feeling like they can ascend.” Glad to see the producer’s first Voice win didn’t change him! Watch his answer below.
When Sawyer won on the eighth season, Pharrell had an interesting piece of advice for the 16-year-old. “You know, you have to think about the farm and the family that provided the incredible conditions that made the story so Sawyer,” the 42-year-old hitmaker told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “That’s great, man! You gotta go back home. It’s about family, and this is a family show.” The Voice is also a competition, which reportedly led to some feuds on the set. On the same season as Pharrell’s win, there were rumors that he and fellow coach Adam Levine, 36, were not getting along.

Pharrell and Adam were reportedly not getting along on the previous season. However, a source close to the show shut that rumor down. “This is beyond not true. Everyone on the set when it comes to the mentors gets along just fine,” the source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Pharrell has such a calm and positive demeanor, we can’t imagine him not getting along with anyone!
