Latifah, Zeta-Jones to Perform at Oscars

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Queen Latifah and the very pregnant Catherine Zeta-Jones have agreed to perform a duet from their musical "Chicago" at Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony.

The John Kander and Fred Ebb tune "I Move On" is nominated for best original song. Zeta-Jones, whose second child with husband Michael Douglas is due in April, performed the number in the film with co-star Renee Zellweger.

Zellweger declined to reprise her performance for the live Oscar ceremony, the academy announced Wednesday.

Latifah and Zeta-Jones are both nominated in the supporting-actress category for their roles in "Chicago," while Zellweger is up for the lead-actress prize. The film has 13 nominations, including a nomination for best picture.

Other scheduled performers in the best-song category include Paul Simon's "Father and Daughter" from the animated "The Wild Thornberrys Movie" and U2's "The Hands That Built America" from "Gangs of New York."
