“We are very excited to welcome Pink to the Oscar stage for the very first time,” said show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron in an official statement. “She is regarded as one of the greatest voices in pop music and one of the best performers of her generation, and we are thrilled to have her join us for a highly anticipated moment on the broadcast.”
The acrobatic performer expressed her joy on Twitter, “Big news!!! I’d like to thank @TheAcademy for inviting me to perform on the #Oscars on March 2nd!! #holycow.”
