Williams to be coach on ‘Voice’

– NBC has signed singer-songwriter Pharrell Williams as a coach for the upcoming seventh season of its musical competition series “The Voice.”

Williams scored an Oscar nomination this year for his song “Happy” from the film “Despicable Me 2.” He also had a Grammy-winning collaboration with Daft Punk on the dance hit “Get Lucky.”

He was an adviser to team Usher on the fourth season of “The Voice,” and performed the song “Blurred Lines” with Robin Thicke on the show last May.

NBC said it would announce the remainder of the coaching line-up at a later date.

Jones’ sky-dive gets postponed

Actress Shirley Jones is celebrating her 80th birthday on the ground, instead of skydiving as she had planned.

Jones announced last week that she planned to celebrate her birthday by jumping from a plane for the first time, something she said she wanted to do all her life. She was inspired by President George H.W. Bush, who skydived on several of his birthdays.

Spokesman Edward Lozzi said Jones’ family held an intervention Sunday to prevent the actress from going through with the jump planned for Monday. Jones insists she still plans to skydive, though no date has been set.
