Pharrell Williams is to join the US version of The Voice as a coach, it has been confirmed.

The singer and producer will replace Cee Lo Green, who announced recently that he was leaving the reality TV show after four seasons. Williams previously appeared on the show as a guest mentor to Usher and his team during season four.

"It's been a huge year for Pharrell, with recognition for his contribution in the world of music — the Despicable Me franchise soundtracks, his Oscar-nominated song 'Happy' and his Grammy-winning collaboration with Daft Punk on the breakout dance hit 'Get Lucky'. His dominance in record sales in 2014, coupled with his incomparable accomplishments in the world of fashion and design, make him an irresistible addition to The Voice family," Paul Telegdy, president, alternative and late night programming, NBC Entertainment told Billboard.

He continued: "He has already made a considerable impact as a mentor, drawing on an impressive track record as both a producer and performer. It is a perfect fit for The Voice as we evolve and reach for new heights with this franchise. It feels like we are welcoming an existing family member home."

The rest of the coach line-up will be confirmed at a later date, NBC said.

Last month it was revealed that Coldplay frontman Chris Martin will appear on three episodes of the show as a mentor.
