Karen O is officially an Oscar nominated musician thanks to “The Moon Song”, her original contribution to Spike Jonze’s new film Her. Now that she’s part of the club, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer was invited to hang with Tinseltown’s elite at the Hollywood Reporter’s Nominees Night party on Monday night, where she delivered a live performance of the song. Accompanied by an acoustic guitar, she also sang Fever to Tell’s “Maps”, marking “only the second time [she’s] ever played it without” her bandmates, Nick Zinner and Brian Chase. Watch footage of the performance below.

“The Moon Song” also recently received a fully-realized version thanks to a sweeping duet featuring Ezra Koenig.
