“We are very excited to welcome Pink to the Oscar stage for the first time,” producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement on Friday. “We are thrilled to have her join us for a highly anticipated moment on the broadcast.”
The “Just Give Me a Reason” singer, who Tweeted “#holycow” when she shared the big news, isn’t the only big name singing at the Oscars for the first time – Bette Midler, who’s been nominated for an Oscar twice and served as a presenter, will also be performing.
Will they duet on “Wind Beneath My Wings” while Pink performs her trademark aerial acrobatics high above the A-list crowd? Producers aren’t saying but we hope so!
