Anna Kendrick is set to perform at the Oscars on February 22nd, but it's uncertain exactly what the Pitch Perfect 2 and Into the Woods star will do. The shows producers, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, have merely said that Kendrick will do “something special that is sure to be an ‘Only on the Oscars’ moment.”

Kendrick sang a hit song from Pitch Perfect called 'Cups' that made it all the way to the number six spot on the Billboard Charts. It was featured on the Pitch Perfect soundtrack and marked the first time Anna Kendrick was considered both an actress and a pop music star. She joins a lineup of spectacular performances at the 87th Oscars that includes actor Jack Black, singer Rita Ora, and John Legend together with Common, who will perform 'Glory' from the movie Selma.

Anna Kendrick tweeted word of her invitation to perform at the Oscars earlier on Monday.

Scarlett Johansson, Octavia Spencer, Zoe Saldana and Josh Hutcherson were added to the roster of Oscar presenters on Monday. They will join perviously scheduled presenters including Benedict Cumberbatch, Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, and Marion Cotillard.

Will you be tuning in to the Oscars to see Anna Kendrick and her "special performance" on February 22? Do you expect she might do an updated version of 'Cups' or perhaps even something from the upcoming Pitch Perfect 2? Or will she do something completely unexpected that will find fans even more enamored with this talented actress and singer?
