Video: Royal Blood – “Happy” Pharrell Cover for the ‘Live Lounge’

This year’s Academy Awards, more commonly known as the Oscars, celebrated its 86th ceremony held to honor the best of all those involved in every important facet of the film industry in 2013. This year was a particularly different edition of the Oscars as it featured several POD-favorites like the Arcade Fire up for Best Score for the Her score (eventually lost to Gravity) and Pharrell and Karen O were nominated for Best Song (for “Happy” from Despicable Me 2 and “The Moon Song” from Her, respectively; eventually losing to “The Moon Song”). Not only that, but all the nominees in the Best Song category performed throughout the night.

Above you can see Pharrell performing a good rendition of his track and even got to dance with the likes of Lupita Nyong’o (who won Best Supporting Actress) and Amy Adams (Oscar-nominated).
