Gwyneth Paltrow, Zachary Levi and Mandy Moore to perform at the Oscars
The Academy announced that Paltrow will be among the performers bringing to life this year's nominees for best song during the Feb. 27 ceremony.
Paltrow will croon "Coming Home" from her twangy melodrama "Country Strong." Also taking the stage: Zachary Levi and Mandy Moore, doing "I See the Light" from Disney's "Tangled"; A.R. Rahman and Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine (awesome) with "If I Rise" from "127 Hours"; and Oscar perennial Randy Newman, singing "We Belong Together" from "Toy Story 3." (Hopefully he'll follow that up with a spontaneous medley of "Short People" and "I Love L.A.")
Truly there's something here for everyone: people who love "Chuck," the song "Dog Days Are Over," the delightfully non-threatening melodies of Mr. Newman and Paltrow. Or even people who hate Paltrow. Seriously, no matter how Miss GOOP sounds on Oscar night, it will provoke another round of "God, she's awful" vs. "I actually like her, stop being so mean!"
Something else to look forward to on the night of the Academy Awards.
