Move over, Grammys! The 2014 Academy Awards is shaping up to be a night to remember for both movies and music, with star-studded performances from some of the biggest names in the biz. But just who’s performing during Oscars 2014? Read on to find out!
Thanks to some amazing nominations in the Best Original Song category, viewers can expect some insane performances during tonight’s show.
Get ready for an amazing collaboration from Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig and Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O, because these two musical forces are coming together to perform Karen’s Oscar-nominated “The Moon Song” from Her. This is Karen’s first Oscar nom.
U2 will grace the stage to perform “Ordinary Love” from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Remember when this legendary band lost to Eminem in 2003? His “Lose Yourself” anthem from 8 Mile bested their “The Hands That Built America” from Gangs of New York.
Pharrell will be performing “Happy” from Despicable Me 2. If this performance is anywhere near his Grammy gig, we’re all in for a treat.
Rounding out the Best Original Song performances is Idina Menzel, who will perform the insanely-popular “Let It Go” from Frozen. You can finally stop listening to all the amazing covers of this catchy tune and hear it straight from the Broadway goddess’ mouth.
To top it off, Pink and Bette Midler will be taking the stage — though we have no clue what they’ll be singing.
This is going to be one insane night for music!
The Oscars air tonight, March 2, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
