kristin chenoweth seth macfarlane oscars gi Academy Awards 2013: Seth MacFarlane and Kristin Chenoweth to close the show

The Academy Awards are just a few days away, and now it’s been announced how the show will close. Seth MacFarlane, the show’s host, will be joined by Kristin Chenoweth for a song. According to show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, “After the Best Picture award has been given, Seth and Kristin will perform a special number and we think it will be a ‘can’t miss’ moment.”
Chenoweth is a Tony Award winning actress, who originated the role of Glinda in the critically-acclaimed “Wicked.” MacFarlane is no stranger to music himself, in fact he’s nominated for Best Original Song for “Everybody Needs A Best Friend” from the movie “Ted.”
Also scheduled for the performances are Adele, Norah Jones, and Barbra Streisand, as well as a celebration of musicals, and a tribute to the James Bond franchise. The 85th Academy Awards will be broadcast live, Sunday, on ABC.
