Gwyneth Paltrow will sing at the Oscars (Grammys too, with Cee Lo)

Gwyneth Paltrow will sing at the Oscars Gwyneth Paltrow keeps whistling her awards season tune -- the actress has been on a roll since promoting her musical turn in "Country Strong" -- and now she's bringing it to the Academy Awards.

Paltrow will belt "Coming Home" from the "Country Strong" soundtrack on the James Franco- and Anne Hathaway-hosted telecast Feb. 27.

Others performing at the Academy Awards include Randy Newman with "We Belong Together" from “Toy Story 3," Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi singing "I See the Light" from "Tangled," and A.R. Rahman and Florence Welch, of Florence + the Machine, doing "If I Rise" from "127 Hours," which Rahman recorded with Dido.

After a respectable bow at the 2010 Country Music Awards, Paltrow is almost an old pro at booking these major gigs -- so it's natural she'd hitch her wagon to the Grammys on Feb. 13.

At the music award show, she'll join Cee Lo Green in support of his nomination for the infectious "Forget You" -- which Paltrow interpreted in 2010 as a guest star on "Glee."

Does all this Paltrow performing sound like beautiful music to you? Tell us in the comments section below.
