Joel Madden has more than just his engagement to Nicole Richie to celebrate these days.

The tattooed rocker is heading to the Oscars.

No, he's not a presenter or some sort of last-minute nominee…

Madden has signed as the official DJ of the Academy Awards.

"Guess who is Dj'in the Oscars," he posted on his Twitter page. "Me. Yes i will put on a bow tie of some sort."

He continued, "Thank you [Oscars coproducer] @adammshankman for making me a part of the show. I've never been to the Academy awards before. Gawrsh!"

Madden joins a select list of young Hollywood invited to take part in the festivities. As I was the first to tell you, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart will be presenting together. Miley Cyrus and Zac Efron have also been announced as presenters.

I'm told Madden will be providing the music inside the Kodak Theatre during commercial breaks. The Oscars telecast live on ABC on March 7.

Madden's work will also continue late into the night when he, his brother Benji and DJ Vice deejay at E!'s very own postshow party at newly hatched hot spot Drai's at the new W Hotel in Hollywood.

We're so hoping Nicole Richie will join her man for the night 'cause—why else?—we wanna see what she'd wear.
