    Awwww. We're crying, too.

    Only Oprah could make the usually calm and collected Pharrell cry on national TV.

    The legendary interviewer spoke with P for an episode of her show Oprah Prime, which aired on OWN last Sunday night. It got a little emotional.

    (You might want to grab a tissue, too.)

    As the two were discussing his undeniably catchy song "Happy," Oprah paused to play a video of people all over the world dancing and singing to the song.

    Pharrell was a little overwhelmed with joy.

    Of course P's first reaction was, "Why am I crying on Oprah?"

    And Oprah was like, "Well, I'm Oprah. It's what I do, duh."

    "It's overwhelming, because it's like I love what I do..."

    "... and I just appreciate the fact that people have believed in me for so long that I could make it to this point to feel that," Pharrell said.

    Happy tears, all the feels. <3
