Bette Midler Named Oscar Performer!
The multiple-Grammy-winning entertainer, who also scored several Oscar nods over the years, will make her first appearance as a performer at the event, and Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are pleased with the news.
Both producers told press, "We are thrilled to have Bette perform on the Oscars for the very first time. We believe she will make our Oscar telecast an especially moving evening."
The 86th Academy Awards will go live on March 2nd with Ellen DeGeneres handling the all-important hosting duties.
