LOS ANGELES (PIX11) — Pharrell Williams paid tribute to the #BlackLivesMatter movement during the Grammys on Sunday night.

Many viewers and Twitter users noticed the tribute during Pharrell’s “Happy” performance. While performing the hit song, Pharrell and his dancers held up their hands — which mimicked the “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” protest. Some of the dancers were clad in hoodies.
