When Pharrell closed out the EMAs on Oct. 25, he was clearly on a mission to tear the house down. He did just that with an epic performance of his song “Freedom”!
Pharrell, 42, may be a great Voice coach, but he proved he’s even better performer at the MTV EMAs! He rocked the stage at Milan’s Mediolanum Forum with a performance of his powerful jam, “Freedom.” We totally understand how everyone wants to be on Team Pharrell!
With a crew of backup dancers in colorful dresses, Pharrell brought the message of “Freedom” to life. Between the awesome setting and his flawless vocals, he made quite the statement with his performance! The high-pitched scream of “Freedom!” is not an easy note to hit, but it was effortless for Pharrell. Plus, he looked amazing as always, rocking a stylish pair of overalls, short sleeve polo, and black beret.
Before he went into his gripping performance, Pharrell started “Freedom” chants and shared a moving message about freedom with the audience. He’s clearly passionate about the message of the song, and definitely that came through on stage. No wonder he was the one to close out the show!
The last time we saw Pharrell perform “Freedom” was on the streets of LA for the MTV VMAs on Aug. 30. He had fireworks, sexy dancers, and plenty of smooth moves in that performance, so we knew we had a good one in store this time around! And since the video for “Freedom” was up for the Best Video EMA, of course the live performance was going to be incredible!
We still can’t get over how Pharrell can rock a stage! Considering he’s the reigning champion coach on The Voice, there’s no denying that Pharrell is the whole package — especially after this performance!
