SNL this weekend was all kinds of awesome.
Anna Kendrick guest-hosted the show, composer Hans Zimmer was with the orchestra and Pharrell Williams was the musical star who gave the most entertaining performance of the night by singing his chart-buster single Happy.
Also, it was Pharrell’s birthday on April 5, making the mood all the more festive for his fans.
Backed by a group of children break-dancers, the hit-maker performed a superb rendition of the song which was also nominated for this year’s Academy Awards.
Happy was written and produced by Pharrell for the animated movie Despicable Me 2. It also serves as the lead single from the musician’s second studio album, GIRL (2014).
The song has been ruling the music charts for more than a month now and is frequently billed as the biggest single of this year by leading news publications such as The Guardian.
