Ted song to be performed at Oscars

Everybody Needs a Best Friend, from Seth MacFarlene’s blockbuster animated/live-action film Ted, will be performed by Norah Jones at the Academy Awards this year, ComingSoon.net is reporting. Although the movie about a potty mouthed teddy bear more than earned its R rating, the Oscar-nominated song is actually sweet and simple, sounding more like something that would come from a Bing Crosby movie than a raunchy comedy. Of the nominated songs, the only other one confirmed to be performed this year is Skyfall by Adele, which is expected to win the prize.
