Josh Groban and Beyoncé will perform the Oscar-nominated song “Believe” together at the 77th annual Academy Awards ceremony, Billboard.com has learned. Written by Glen Ballard and Alan Silvestri, the track is from the movie “The Polar Express” and was performed by Groban on its soundtrack.
Beyoncé will also sing two other Oscar-nominated songs at this year’s Oscars, to be held Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles. Accompanied by the American Boyschoir, the songstress will perform “Look to Your Path (Vois Sur Ton Chemin)” from “The Chorus (Les Choristes).”
Beyoncé will also step in for Minnie Driver to perform “Learn to Be Lonely,” the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Charles Hart-penned tune from “The Phantom of the Opera.” Driver sang “Learn to Be Lonely” on the “Phantom” soundtrack, and although there was speculation that Driver would perform the song at the Oscar ceremony, sources say that she was unable to do so because of scheduling conflicts.
Meanwhile, Counting Crows are confirmed to perform their song “Accidentally in Love” from “Shrek 2.”
Still to be announced is the performer for the remaining tune nominated for the best original song Oscar: “Al Otro Lado Del Rio” from “The Motorcycle Diaries.”
