Broadway Vet Idina Menzel to Perform ‘Let It Go’ at the Oscars

Disney’s Frozen has been a runaway success at movie theaters — so much so that a Broadway musical is already in the works.

The movie is also up for two Oscars this year, including Original Song. And the movie’s star, Broadway vet Idina Menzel, will perform the theme song “Let It Go” at the Oscars this Sunday.

If the song wins, history will be made. Co-songwriter Robert Lopez would become the 12th person to earn an EGOT for winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. He won Tonys for best original score for Avenue Q back in 2004 and for best book and original score for The Book of Mormon in 2011 (his Grammy came for the musical theater for The Book of Mormon as well). His Emmys came from his work on the show The Wonder Pets.

Menzel made her name on Broadway through shows like Rent and Wicked. She will be returning to the Great White Way right after the Oscars. She stars in the new musical If/Then, with previews starting March 5.
