Bette Midler is performing at the Oscars this year, and she needs your help figuring out what to sing!
On Wednesday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that the legendary singer-actress (and two-time Oscar nominee herself) will be taking the stage during this year's show. Shortly afterwards, Bette took to Twitter to ask what her fans want to hear her sing on March 2, writing , "Now that the news is out, what shall I sing at this years#Oscars?"
Then on Thursday, the 68-year-old entertainment veteran tweeted a throwback shot from her 2008-2010 stint at Las Vegas' Caesars Palace. In the pic, the "Wind Beneath My Wings" singer is surrounded by showgirls and wears a shimmery head-to-toe ensemble made of sequins (or some similarly sparkly and wonderful material). "As you know, I'm hitting the #Oscars stage," she tweeted with the pic, adding, "I might need to find that suit…"
And while it's unclear still what tune seems to be the fan favorite for Ms. Midler to perform, anything she sings will work for us. Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres is excited to hear Bette sing, too! She retweeted the singer's big news, adding , "This makes me so happy."
Only 10 more days until the show!
