Anna Kendrick will be part of a special performance at the Oscars, the actress announced Monday.

“Excited to announce @TheAcademy has invited me to be part of a special performance at the #Oscars on Feb. 22nd!” Kendrick shared on Twitter.

The news comes on the heels of Friday’s announcement that Canadian pop group Tegan and Sara, together with Andy Samberg’s comedy/music troupe the Lonely Island, will appear to perform the Oscar-nominated “Lego Movie” song “Everything Is Awesome.”

Academy Award producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron previously announced that the four other Best Original Song nominees will be performed during the ceremony as well. They also revealed that “Let It Go” songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez will write a new song for host Neil Patrick Harris.

Presenters for the show announced thus far include last year’s winners Matthew McConaughey, Cate Blanchett, Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong’o, as well as Octavia Spencer, Josh Hutcherson, Scarlett Johansson and Zoe Saldana.

The 87th Academy Awards will take place on Feb. 22 at the Dolby Theatre and will be broadcast live on ABC.
