U2 To Perform At The Oscars

(Gibson) U2 are up for Best Original Song at this year's Oscars, and Bono has let it slip that the band will perform at the ceremony. Speaking with The Wrap earlier this week at the Academy's nominees' luncheon, Bono said the band will perform their song that's up for an Oscar, "Ordinary Love," which is featured in the movie Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

Bono added that this is the one time fans will have the chance to see the song performed live, specifically stating that this will be the "only band performance of the song."

"After Mandela died, we didn't think it would be right to release it as a single, because it would seem like we were trying to capitalize," Bono explained. "So we're going to do it this once - but it's a pretty good place to do it."

Bono is hoping to switch things up at next year's Oscars. He told the publication that he has pitched an idea to the Oscar telecast producers for the red carpet to have an imprint of the logo for his (RED) charity organization next year. (RED) works to fight AIDS and provide education on the disease. "We'll have a camera looking down on the parentheses, and then the stars can all stand in the parentheses and look up," he said." more on this story
