No Cher at Oscars, just Gwyneth Paltrow, Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Thought I had processed the fact that “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” from ‘Burlesque’ was snubbed by the Oscars in the best original song category. The song, written by Diane Warren and sung by Cher, is a huge hit and won the Golden Globe Award.

Now that I’ve just read in ‘Entertainment Weekly’ the line-up of performers on Oscar night singing the nominated songs, my disappointment has reared its ugly head again.

To not be able to see Cher, at 64 and still in all her glory, belt this big power ballad on the show is such a missed opportunity. Any Oscars that involves Cher turns out to be memorable whether it’s what she wears (where do I begin?) or what she wins (best actress for ‘Moonstruck’) or doesn’t win (the snub for ‘Mask’).

So, no Cher this year. [I’ve already written about her feelings on the matter and posted my interview with Diane Warren.]

So who will we get instead?

Gwyneth Paltrow will sing “Coming Home” from ‘Country Strong’ and that should be fun. Gwyneth sang at a country music show a few months ago, was superb on ‘Glee’ and we’ve known about her singing abilities since ‘Duets.’
