Pharrell isn’t done dominating awards season just yet. After performing at the Grammys and taking home three trophies, the star collaborator and producer will get to highlight his solo hit “Happy” at the 2014 Academy Awards. The Oscar-nominated Despicable Me 2 track is up against U2‘s “Ordinary Love” from Mandela: Long Walk To FreedomKaren O‘s Her track “The Moon Song” and Idina Menzel‘s “Let It Go” from Frozen‘s smash soundtrack for Best Original Song.

At last year’s Academy Awards, Adele performed during the ceremony and ended up taking home the Best Original Song trophy, so Pharrell has a chance to repeat that feat.

The 2014 Oscars are hosted by Ellen DeGeneres and air live March 2 on ABC.
