(NEW YORK) — For all the fanfare and anticipation, Oscars telecasts usually end rather abruptly, moments after the Best Picture trophy is handed out. However, this year’s telecast promises something different.
Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced on Wednesday, “After the Best Picture award has been given, Seth [MacFarlane] and Kristin [Chenoweth] will perform a special number and we think it will be a ‘can’t miss’ moment.”
The 85th Annual Academy Awards will air live on ABC this Sunday, Feb. 24. MacFarlane will host.
