At the Oscars 2014, Adele Dazeem wowed us all with her rendition of “Let it Go”, the Frozen track written by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez which took home the award for Best Song.

Now it seems that this year’s host, Neil Patrick Harris doesn’t want to be left out in the cold either, as he’s invited the same husband and wife team to pen him a song which he will perform on the night.

“On the heels of the international success of last year’s Frozen and their Oscar for “Let It Go”, we couldn’t be happier to have Kristen and Bobby Lopez write an incredibly special song for Neil Patrick Harris and special guests to perform this year on the Oscar stage,” said the Oscars producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron in a statement.

“YouTube, get ready!”

The ultra talented Lopezes added: “We love the Oscars and have always been huge Neil Patrick Harris fans, so when he asked us to write him a song for this year’s show we said, ‘Yes!’ before he could finish the sentence – it’s possible he may have been asking us for something else.

“We are having so much fun collaborating, and have even enjoyed weaving our experience as Oscar nominees into the song.”

Oh my! This all sounds like it will be so good, especially when you add in that the song is said to feature in “an original multimedia, musical sequence” called “Moving Pictures.”

Of course, we already know Neil Patrick Harris will be a fantastic Oscar host, just because he is Neil Patrick Harris and fabulous at everything, and it’s always a total joy to watch him perform so we are really looking forward to seeing what song the Lopez team come up with for him to sing.

The world will be watching (and judging) Neil Patrick Harris when he takes to the stage for the Oscars, which will be held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on February 22. Of course we’ll all be anxious to hear the winners but as Ellen DeGeneres proved last year, the hosting duties can be equally as fun to watch and this year looks to be following suit.

A multimedia musical performance? Special Guests? Oscar Award Winning Songwriters? Neil Patrick Harris?

Count us IN!
