Beverly Hills: World renowned rock band U2 will perform their Oscar-nominated song, `Ordinary Love` for a global audience at the Oscars, show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced today. U2’s exclusive Oscar show performance will be the first time the band will perform the song live.

`Ordinary Love` was written by the group for `Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom` and is nominated for Original Song. The three other nominated songs are `Happy` from `Despicable Me 2`, `Let It Go` from `Frozen` and `The Moon Song` from `Her`.

U2 has sold more than 150 million records worldwide since its formation in 1976. The group has won 22 Grammy Awards—more than any other band—and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, its first year of eligibility. The band’s 110-show, 26-month U2 360° tour, which ended in July 2011, played to over 7 million fans in 30 countries on 5 continents and was the highest-grossing concert tour of all time. The band is currently in the studio working on a new album.
