Pharrell Williams to perform on Oscar telecast
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Pharrell Williams will perform at the Academy Awards.
Oscar producers said Tuesday the producer-performer will sing his nominated song “Happy.” There was no word on whether his Grammy Award-stealing hat would make an appearance.
Williams wrote “Happy” for “Despicable Me 2.” It’s nominated for original song along with U2’s “Ordinary Love” from “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” ”Let It Go” by Idina Menzel from “Frozen” and Karen O’s “The Moon Song” from “Her.”
The 40-year-old Williams has been on quite a run with prominent roles in the recent hits “Get Lucky” and “Blurred Lines” and with four Grammy wins, including producer of the year.
The Oscars will be presented March 2.
