Tomorrow night, the 2014 Academy Awards take place in Los Angeles. Several of the artists nominated in the Best Song category will perform during the ceremony, including Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O. According to The Associated Press, she’ll perform “The Moon Song”, her original contribution to Spike Jonze’s Her, accompanied by Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig.

As Karen explained recently to Rolling Stone, “The Moon Song” was originally intended as a duet. “I was really excited at the prospect of getting to record it with a male vocalist. Ezra was super cool and open, he slipped into character like a champ and damn he’s got the goods.” Below, you can to Koenig-aided version of “The Moon Song”.

Along with Karen O and Koenig, the show will also feature performances from Pharrell and Pink.
