Here’s the best reason so far to tune in.
It has been announced that The Weeknd, Pharrell, Lady Gaga and Sam Smith will all appear at the 2016 Academy Awards, and that the ceremony will see a “special performance” from none other than Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. The latest released list of Oscars presenters and performers also includes John Legend and Common, who won the Oscar for Best Song at last year’s ceremony. The news release only specifies Grohl as being scheduled to perform at the event, but a rep for The Weeknd has confirmed that he will perform as well.
Chris Rock will host the 2016 Academy Awards, set to air February 28th at 7 p.m. ET on ABC.
