U2 Set To Perform At Oscars

 

 

It's probably no real surprise, but U2 has confirmed it will not only attend the Academy Awards ceremony on March 2 in Los Angeles but also perform "Ordinary Love" from "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," which is up for Best Original Song.

"Ordinary Love" won the Golden Globe award in January, and U2 will be performing alongside fellow nominees Pharrell ("Happy" from "Despicable Me 2") and Karen O and Spike Jonze ("The Moon Song" from "Her").

U2 is putting finishing touches on its next album, the follow-up to 2009's "No Line on the Horizon," which is expected to be ready for summer release, with a tour to follow.
