News Karen O To Perform At The Oscars 2014

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs star is up against U2 and Pharrell for Best Original Song.



Karen O has been confirmed to perform at this year’s Academy Awards on 2nd March, where she’ll be competing for the Best Original Song gong for ‘The Moon Song’, taken from Spike Jonze’s ‘Her’ film.

She’ll be up against Pharrell (for ‘Happy’, in ‘Despicable Me 2’) and U2 (for ‘Ordinary Love’, in ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’). Those artists will also be performing at the ceremony.

Yesterday footage emerged of Karen O performing a stripped down rendition of ‘The Moon Song’ at Hollywood Reporter’s Nominees Night. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs star also performed ‘Maps’ (for the second time ever without her band, so she dedicated the song to them), in an acoustic rendition that spans just over a couple of minutes.
