Pink to Perform at the ‘86th Annual Academy Awards’

Grammy Award-winning singer and actress Pink will make a special appearance on the 86th Annual Academy Awards, show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced today. The Oscars, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, will air on Sunday, March 2, live on ABC.

Here's what producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron had to say about the singer making her Oscar debut in a statement.

"We are very excited to welcome Pink to the Oscar stage for the very first time. 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."

Pink has won three Grammy Awards and six MTV Video Music Awards, including Best Collaboration for the single "Just Give Me A Reason" from her 2012 album "The Truth About Love." The song was her eighth to reach No. 1 on Billboard's Adult Top 40 chart, setting an industry record. Named Billboard Woman of the Year in 2013, Pink has sold over 40 million albums and 65 million singles.

Acting under her given name, Alecia Moore, she received critical acclaim for her role in the 2013 ensemble drama Thanks for Sharing, which starred Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2013 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, March 2, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center and televised live on the ABC Television Network. The Oscars, produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, also will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
