Following the 86th Academy Awards telecast at Hollywood & Highland, nine-time Grammy Award-winner John Legend will perform at the Governors Ball, the Academy's post-Oscars celebration, on Sunday March 2.

The iconic singer/songwriter (and piano-playing heartthrob) will take the stage at the Ray Dolby Ballroom, just above The Dolby Theatre, which is the Oscar night venue. 1,500 guests are expected to attend the Governors Ball, a boozy, schmoozy evening that toasts winners, nominees, presenters, performers and other luminaries. Past crooners include Tony Bennett and Michael Feinstein.

The Oscars will take place on Sunday, March 2 at 5:30 PM PST and the ceremony will be televised live on ABC. Check out a song-and-dance trailer for the Academy Awards here, featuring host Ellen DeGeneres.
