Watch: Pharrell Rocks The Academy Awards With ‘Happy’


With one day separating fans from getting their hands on his new album ‘G I R L’, Grammy-winning rapper/producer Pharrell Williams took to the Academy Award stage tonight to lend a live rendition of his hit song ‘Happy’.

Bringing some much needed animation to the otherwise inanimate 86th Annual Academy Awards the hitmaker and his Arby’s-styled hat got down on stage with his Oscar-nominated hit from the ‘Despicable Me 2’ soundtrack and even took to the audience to get into the groove with the likes of Lupita Nyong’o, Meryl Streep, Jamie Foxx, and more.

  12. Dirty laundry March 2, 2014

    @QueenGaGarbage What was Gags there for? She didn’t perform or present she’s pretty pointless at this moment in time.

  13. anonymous March 2, 2014

    Nice performance.

  14. Kitty March 2, 2014

    Lol Ellen used that Smokey The Bear hat as a collection plate.

  15. Snatched In McQueen March 3, 2014

  20. Stephy Tha Lambily March 3, 2014

    Congrats to all the winners at the Oscars tonight!

    Black people SLAYED tonight!

    This performance made me smile from beginning to the end. For the wanna be “vocal experts” this is not the Grammys or bet awards. So have several seats and hush. Pharrell did a great job

  22. IStanForYourFav March 3, 2014

    @Stephy I love your avi. I forgot how beautiful Mariah can be. She is very pretty.

    @Bobby Smh. Rihanna and Ciara will whenever they want to.

    @DirtyLaundry No range? I didn’t hear Kelly’s whistle register on Talk a Good Game…

    Anyway I’m hoping that Happy single & this moderate press will bring him to an album with a certification. He is so s*** to me. I’m buying G.I.R.L. as soon as it come out. I even preordered it. I can’t wait. #MyHubby

    Good night indeed …. loved the performance … Lupita is sooooo damn gorgeous

  24. JOHNVIDAL March 3, 2014

    He did good for his producer standards (album is not getting good reviews though). Nice performance.
    I can´t believe how beautiful those people can look, it´s not real cos it´s obviously thanks to a lot of money spent on beauty (apart from they being beautiful already). But really Lupita is gorgeous and so elegant, Cate Blanchet, Charlize Theron, Anne Hathaway, etc etc looked like angels. It´s all an ilusion I know, but it´s stunning. Even a man that I don´t feel is that hot like Bradley Cooper looked amazing. Even Lady gaga looked so good and elegant (and we know it´s often hard for musicians to fit in this world, ask Beyonce, Mariah and more, it´s just another world, more elegant).
    Congrats to the winners, it was fair, although they were all great nominees.
