By Annie Reuter

Less than a month after winning three GRAMMYs and singing with Stevie Wonder, Daft Punk and Nile Rodgers on the GRAMMY stage, Pharrell Williams has announced he will take the Oscars stage.

Today, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that the producer will perform “Happy” from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, which is nominated for Best Original Song. The singer/songwriter/producer helped created the soundtrack for the film and last November, he released a video for “Happy” which ran for 24 hours and featured many guest spots including Odd Future‘s Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt, Steve Martin, Steve Carell, among others.
