Triple Threat

Sing, sing a song (or 3):

Beyonce Knowles will have her work cut out at the 77th Academy Awards on February 27 - she's singing three of the five nominated songs.

The Destiny's Child star had already signed up to duet with Josh Groban on The Polar Express theme "Believe" and now she has agreed to sing the Original Song nominees from Phantom Of The Opera and Les Choristes.

Phantom star Minnie Driver was considered the obvious choice to sing Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Learn To Be Lonely" at the Oscars as she sang the tune on the film soundtrack, but Knowles has stepped in to perform. She'll also sing "Look To Your Path" from Les Choristes.

Meanwhile, rockers Counting Crows will perform their Shrek 2 Best Song nomination, "Accidentally In Love," while there's no confirmation as to who will sing the fifth nominated song, The Motorcycle Diaries' "Al Otro Lado Del Rey" at the awards show.

--I'm actually more excited to hear Josh Groban sing. He's great!

You Said

Minnie Driver was in Phantom? If I had known that I might have seen it. I guess the singing bug has bitten her. I have her CD Everything I've Got In My Pocket and she sounds like Sheryl Crow. Minnie just needs more diverse material for songs.

Yes Josh Groban is good.

Her voice in the Phantom is dubbed over for all the opera singing stuff. She's mainly there for comic relief, but she did sing the new "Learn to be Lonely" song.

Minnie actually was singing before she got her breakout part in Circle of Friends - she put her singing career on hold to pursue acting.

She also sings in her movie "Beautiful"
