Oscars host Neil Patrick Harris is preparing to give his star-studded audience a treat next month with an original musical sequence written by the Frozen songwriters.

Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez are busy penning "Moving Pictures" for Harris to perform live on Sunday 22 February as millions of people watch the ceremony worldwide.

 

Harris announced the news on his Twitter account earlier today, confirming that the Oscar-winning duo behind "Let It Go" will not be writing "a song called 'Let It O' with a big giant Swarovski crystal O in the background".

The Lopezes revealed that when Harris asked them to write a song for his hosting stint, they agreed "before he could finish the sentence". "It's possible he may have been asking us for something else," they joked.

"YouTube, get ready!" added show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, but further details of the performance are being kept under wraps.

The Oscars will be televised in more than 225 countries with Sky Movies Oscars broadcasting it live.
