U2 to perform at the Academy Awards

U2 will perform the live debut of their Oscar-nominated song, “Ordinary Love”, at the 86th Annual Academy Awards next month.

“Ordinary Love” was written by the group for the feature film, “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom”, and is nominated for Original Song. The three other nominated songs are “Happy” from “Despicable Me 2”, “Let It Go” from “Frozen” and “The Moon Song” from “Her.”

The Oscars, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, will be broadcast live on ABC on Sunday, March 2.

Last month, U2 picked up a Best Original Song Golden Globe Award for “Ordinary Love” and were on hand to pick up the honor – read more about it here.

U2 are expected to release a new album later this spring; the set has been produced by Danger Mouse and recorded primarily at New York's Electric Lady Studios.
