Tune in and turn up

During the season 13 live finale of The Voice, Pharrell Williams took a break from his coaching duties to join N.E.R.D for a knockout performance of new single “Lemon,” featuring Rihanna.

Taken from their newly released album, No One Ever Really Dies, Pharrell, Chad, and Shae mixed funk with high energy on a blue-lit stage backed by dancers in hoodies and camouflage print trousers. When it was time for the Bajan singer to deliver her bars, a glitter-adorned dancer took center stage to perform what has since become the #LemonDanceChallenge.

Ending with a powerful fist salute in a tight formation, there was no better way to round off the competition. Watch the video above and when you’re done, check out the official video for “Lemon” below.
