Bette Midler to perform at Oscars for first time
LOS ANGELES- Bette Midler will perform at the Academy Awards for the first time.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Midler's booking Wednesday. The show's producers declined to say what number Midler will perform.
As the team behind the films "Chicago" and "Hairspray," producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are quite familiar with musical performance. As Oscar producers last year, they featured a tribute to movie musicals that included Barbra Streisand.
Previously announced musical performers include Pharrell Williams and Idina Menzel. Williams will be singing his Oscar-nominated tune "Happy" from "Despicable Me." Menzel will sing her hit number "Let it Go" from Disney's "Frozen."
The Oscars will be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres.
You will be able to watch the show live March 2 from Los Angeles on WBRZ.
