Gwyneth Paltrow Will Show Off Musical Skills at the Oscars
HollywoodNews.com: Gwyneth Paltrow might have been snubbed from the Oscars shortlist this year, but she will still have a chance to grace the Kodak Stage at the 83rd Academy Awards ceremony—this time, with a guitar in hand.
The Hollywood Reporter announced today that Paltrow is confirmed to perform “Coming Home,” an original from her most recent film Country Strong, which stretched the actress’ vocal chords and guitar-playing skills as she portrayed a booze-y country singer determined to make a comeback. “Coming Home” is nominated in the Best Original Song category.
Nominee and previous Academy Award-winner A.R. Rahmen will perform “If I Rise” from 127 Hours with Florence Welch, of the indie-rock band Florence + the Machine, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Randy Newman will play “We Belong Together” from Toy Story 3, while nominee Alan Menken will accompany Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi on piano for their performance of “I See the Light,” the nominated song from Tangled.
The Academy Awards broadcast live on ABC on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood.
