U2 , nominated in the Oscars' best original song category, will perform at the awards show.

That's according to Bono , who spoke to TheWrap.com Monday at the Academy's nominees luncheon. He said his group will perform their nominated song, "Ordinary Love," featured in the film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom .

Bono said it will be the "only band performance of the song." He added, “After Mandela died, we didn’t think it would be right to release it as a single, because it would seem like we were trying to capitalize. So we’re going to do it this once -- but it’s a pretty good place to do it.”

Bono also mentioned he's proposed an idea to the Oscar telecast producers for next year's show. He'd like the red carpet to have an imprint of the logo for his (RED) charity, which supports the fight against AIDS. He said, “We’ll have a camera looking down on the parentheses, and then the stars can all stand in the parentheses and look up.”
