Menzel was also recently announced as a performer during the Oscars ceremony. She tweeted about her excitement for the performance, saying, "It's really happening. I'm singing on the Oscars! Surreal. Thank u frozen family and Oscar producers for this incredible opportunity."

In addition to their Oscar nomination, U2 recently released the single "Invisible" for free during a commercial during Super Bowl XLVIII. The song was a part of a partnership with (RED) by Bank of America, where along with every download of the song, $1 went to the AIDS-fighting charity.
