Céline Dion may have given birth to twin sons Eddy and Nelson just four months ago, but she's not wasting much time getting back to work.

Not only is the mother of three returning to Las Vegas, but...

I just got word that the Grammy-winning songstress is going to perform at the upcoming Academy Awards!

She's signed on to sing "Smile" during the annual "in memoriam" tribute honoring the stars and industry heavyweights who passed away in the last year.

Ms. Dion is certainly no stranger to the Oscars. She holds the record for the most vocal performance during the awards ceremony. This will be her sixth time. She last performed "I Knew I Loved You" five years ago in honor of legendary Italian composer Ennio Morricone.

Hosted by James Franco and Anne Hathaway, the Oscars will take place at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood and telecast live on ABC on Feb. 27.

Dion is due back in Vegas tomorrow to begin rehearsals for her new show at Caesars Palace, which opens March 15.
