Adam Levine fans get ready for a special performance of ‘Lost Stars’. The Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and actor will also perform the Oscar-nominated song “Lost Stars” at the 87th Oscars when the event premieres next month. The show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron made the announcement earlier today. The Oscars, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, will air on Sunday, February 22, live on ABC.
“Adam Levine is an exceptional and dynamic artist. We’re thrilled to have him make his Oscars stage debut this year,” said Zadan and Meron.
“Lost Stars,” written by Gregg Alexander and Danielle Brisebois for the film “Begin Again,” is nominated for Original Song. The four other nominated songs are “Everything Is Awesome” from “The Lego Movie,” “Glory” from “Selma,” “Grateful” from “Beyond the Lights” and “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from “Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me.”
Levine is the lead singer for the group Maroon 5, which has received three Grammy Awards, two for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals (2005 and 2007) and one for Best New Artist (2004). Levine made his feature film acting debut in “Begin Again,” which is directed by John Carney and also stars Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo.
The 87th Oscars will be held on Sunday, February 22, 2015, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center®in Hollywood, and will be televised live on the ABC Television Network at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.

Other performances and details about the Oscars will be announced as we get closer to the official premiere.
