Pink will make a “special appearance” at the Oscars on March 2. “We are very excited to welcome Pink to the Oscar stage for the very first time,” said producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. “She is regarded as one of the greatest voices in pop music and one of the best performers of her generation, and we are thrilled to have her join us for a highly anticipated moment on the broadcast.”
“Special appearance”? “Highly anticipated moment”? She’s going to sing, right? The Academy isn’t saying for sure, though you typically don’t invite a Grammy-winning artist to introduce Best Live Action Short.
Pink went by her given name, Alecia Moore, in Thank You for Sharing, the 2013 sex-addiction drama that starred Mark Ruffalo, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Josh Gad.
