LOS ANGELES (AP) — Have the Oscars gone Grammys?

Producers of the 86th Academy Awards announced Friday that Pink will appear on the Oscar show. The Grammy-winning singer joins a lineup already set to include performances by U2, Pharrell Williams, Bette Midler, rocker Karen O and Broadway star Idina Menzel.

Producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan didn't specify what Pink's performance will entail. They also haven't said what song Midler will sing.

Williams, Menzel, Karen O and U2 are set to perform their nominated original songs on the March 2 show.
