Posted by monique On February - 13 - 2014 0 Comment

The Oscars are going to rock this year with an upcoming performance by U2. The legendary band will perform their Oscar-nominated song, “Ordinary Love,” for a global audience at the prestigious awards show, announced show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. This will be the first time “Ordinary Love” will be performed live.

“Ordinary Love” was written for “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” starring Idris Elba as Nelson Mandela. The song is nominated for Original Song along with “Happy” from “Despicable Me 2,” “Let It Go” from “Frozen” and “The Moon Song” from “Her.”

U2 has been performing and touring since 1976. The group has won 22 Grammy Awards–more than any other band–and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, its first year of eligibility. Their highest-grossing concert tour of all time, U2360°, spanned 110 shows in 30 countries on five continents over a 26-month period. U2 is currently working on a new studio album.
