Jennifer Hudson, Zeta-Jones to sing in Oscars musical tribute

 
 

LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Oscar winners Russell Crowe, Jennifer Hudson and Catherine Zeta-Jones will perform at the Academy Awards in a tribute to the resurgence of big-screen musicals, organisers said on Wednesday.

The performance, which will also feature Oscar nominees Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman from Les Miserables, is part of the several musical acts at the annual Hollywood awards on Sunday.

"We are pleased to have been able to amass so much talent to create the celebration of musicals of the last decade that we envisioned," Oscars producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan said in a statement. "We are thrilled that so many talented actors have agreed to bring our vision to life."

Musicals have had a revival over the past decade in Hollywood.
