Irish rock veterans U2 will play their Oscar-nominated song "Ordinary Love" from the movie "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" at this year's Academy Awards, organizers announced Wednesday. The March 2 performance at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood will be the first time U2 has played the song live, said Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, producers of the 86th Academy Awards.

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres will host this year's Oscars show, which is a week later than usual, after the Winter Olympics. The Golden Globes were moved two weeks forward, to January 12, to avoid clashing with the Sochi games on television. The Oscars, the climax of Tinseltown's annual awards season, are televised live in more than 225 countries and territories around the world. The theme of this year's show is movie heroes, whether real-life ones like Gandhi, super heroes like Superman and Batman, or heroic stories such as animated film "The Incredibles" and literary tales like "To Kill a
