Lady Gaga to Perform Special Tribute at the Oscars

Lady Gaga will be live telecast-to-telecast with “Cheek to Cheek,” her new collaborative album with Tony Bennett. The iconic pop star performed with Bennett at last Sunday’s Grammy Awards, and for the first time, she’ll perform a special tribute at the Oscars.

Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced today that the six-time Grammy winner will perform at the 87th annual show, to be held Feb. 22 at the Dolby Theatre. The show will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris and air live on ABC at 4 p.m. PT.

Lady Gaga is a once-in-a-lifetime artist whose musical evolution keeps growing,” Zadan and Meron said in a statement. “We are proud to have her perform on the Oscars for the very first time.”

The collaborative album, released in September, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and took home a Grammy for best traditional pop vocal album at the 57th annual show.

Since Lady Gaga’s ascent began seven years ago, she’s sold more than 27 million albums, 130 million singles and 4 million tickets globally. Previously announced performers include Jennifer Hudson and Anna Kendrick.

Offering the five nominated songs are Tegan & Sara and the Lonely Island, “Everything Is Awesome” from “The Lego Movie”; John Legend and Common, “Glory” from “Selma”; Adam Levine, “Lost Stars,” from “Begin Again”; Tim McGraw, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You,” from “Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me”; and Rita Ora, “Grateful,” from “Beyond the Lights.”
