Oscars 2011: James Franco shares the Cher song you won't hear on Oscar night

By Jen Chaney

As you and roughly 131,000 of his followers may be aware, James Franco finally joined Twitter over the weekend. So far, his tweets have generally consisted of links to odd photos and weird comic strips with some NSFW language.

For example, see this picture of a shoulder? Twenty-two people liked it on Facebook. Because Franco posted it. Hell, I even kind of like it for that reason.

Anyway, the soon-to-be-Oscar host has finally shared something vaguely juicy: audio of him singing "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me," Cher's big number from "Burlesque." As previously reported, the number has been scrapped from the Academy Awards telecast. And as Franco's tongue-in-cheek tweet on this subject suggests (see above) that may have been for a reason other than the fact that Cher isn't coming to the Oscars. Listen and decide whether the Oscar producers are a. delighted that Franco is now on Twitter or b. trying to figure out a way to shut down his account.

Finally! We've found something that James Franco isn't good at...singing! Think that may have more to do with why the number was cancelled from the Oscars telecast.
