Pharrell to perform at Oscars
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Pharrell Williams will perform at the Academy Awards.
Oscar producers said today 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.
