Pharrell Took ‘Happy’ at the GRAMMYs & Made It Weird

By Brian Ives 

How many different ways can Pharrell be “Happy?”

He seems to figure out how to keep one of the most ubiquitous songs of the past year and a half fresh. At the 57th Annual GRAMMYs, he started the song with a pretty unhappy—angry, even—version of the song.

Of course, if you were for some reason dressed as a bellhop on national TV (a throwback to this commercial from December), you might be unhappy, too. But the angry intro didn’t last too long, he then went into  a more familiar version of the song, albeit with classical piano breaks courtesy of Lang Lang (you might remember him: he jammed with Metallica at the GRAMMYs last year).

Pharrell has already won one GRAMMY for “Happy” tonight, but will he win Album of the Year for G I R L? Stick around and find out. For now, watch our mini-doc on the year in Pharrell.
