Oscarcast producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have set Idina Menzel to perform for the first time on live TV Frozen‘s “Let It Go”. The tune is nominated for Original Song. It is up against a small field of tunes: the Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” from Despicable Me 2, U2‘s “Ordinary Love” from Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom and Karen O’s “The Moon Song” from Her. You don’t have to wonder if Menzel will lip synch as happened in the Super Bowl. Menzel, who won a Tony for Wicked, can belt it.
