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.
