Earlier this week it was announced that Idina Menzel will perform “Let It Go” from Frozen at the 2014 Academy Awards and today we have even more performance news. Deadline reports that U2 will perform “Ordinary Love” from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom at the big show on March 2. It will be the first time the band performs the Oscar-nominated song live.
The performance is expected to be quite the emotional one, as Bono and his U2 bandmates were incredibly close with Nelson Mandela who passed away in December.
In addition to Idina, U2 and Pharrell Williams (who will perform “Happy” from Despicable Me 2), it was announced today that Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs will perform “The Moon Song” from Her, as well.
