    OMG! Guess Who's Performing at the Oscars?

    Florence Welch, Florence and the Machine Elaine Constantine

    Florence Welch is everywhere—and we love it.

    I just got word that the frontwoman of the Grammy-nominated Florence + the Machine is going to be performing at the Academy Awards Feb. 27.

    Huh? It's not as if she's nominated for any song.

    Here's the deal...

    Dido, who is up for an Oscar with her brother Rollo Armstrong and Indian composer A.R. Rahman for the song "If I Rise" from 127 Hours, isn't available on the big night.

    Florence will step in for her fellow Brit to belt out the song with Rahman.

    It's going to be a busy night for Welch. Later in the evening, Florence + the Machine is slated to perform at Elton John and David Furnish's annual Oscar party benefiting the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

    See you at the Grammys and the Oscars, Flo!
