The songwriting team behind the Oscar-winning song “Let It Go” from Frozen have been tapped to write a musical number for host Neil Patrick Harris which he will perform during the show on February 22. The multimedia sequence by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez is titled “Moving Pictures”.
“We love the Oscars and have always been huge Neil Patrick Harris fans, so when he asked us to write him a song for this year’s show we said, ‘Yes!’ before he could finish the sentence – it’s possible he may have been asking us for something else,” said the Lopezes. “We are having so much fun collaborating, and have even enjoyed weaving our experience as Oscar nominees into the song.”
Harris actually made the initial announcement this morning on Twitter.
The 87th Oscars will be held on Sunday, February 22 at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, and will be televised live on the ABC Television Network at 7 PM ET/4 PM PT.
