Oscars 2014: Karen O and Ezra Koenig sing 'The Moon Song'
Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ frontwoman Karen O and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig brought some romance to the evening with their performance of Her‘s “The Moon Song,” a stripped down ditty written by Karen O and Spike Jonze and nominated for best original song. Sitting on steps with an image of a moon projected behind them, the pair gazed into each others’ eyes as they sang, with Koenig strumming an acoustic guitar as the only accompaniment. So this is what Her would have been like if Samantha wasn’t a phone?
To add to the laid-back, intimate vibe, Karen O’s high heels sat beside her instead of on her feet. Just add her to the list of woman shedding their heels on awards show stages. Watch the performance below:
