Pink is going to the Oscars!

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced on Friday that the 34-year-old singing sensation will make a special appearance during the awards show.

"We are very excited to welcome Pink to the Oscar stage for the very first time," producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement. "She is regarded as one of the greatest voices in pop music and one of the best performers of her generation, and we are thrilled to have her join us for a highly anticipated moment on the broadcast."

The Grammy winner gushed about the opportunity and tweeted, "Big news!!! I'd like to thank @TheAcademy for inviting me to perform on the #Oscars on March 2nd!! #holycow."

"Big news! @Pink is performing at the #Oscars! I don't know what she has planned, but I'm bringing my safety net just in case," host Ellen DeGeneres joked on Twitter.

After all, Pink does like to perform while suspended in the air.

The 2014 Oscars are March 2 and will air live on ABC, with the main event usually kicking off at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT.
