Midler has been nominated for an Oscar for her role in "For the Boys" and "The Rose."

Previously announced musical performers include Pharrell Williams and Idina Menzel. Williams will be singing his Oscar-nominated tune "Happy," while Menzel will sing "Let It Go" from the Disney movie "Frozen." Producers have not revealed what song Midler will perform.
