A tantalizing report is out thanks to The Daily Mail: Les Miserables‘ movie cast appears to be preparing a performance for the 2013 Academy Awards!

Word came down the pipeline thanks to star Samantha Barks (Eponine) who reportedly received a few days off from the touring production of Oliver! so she can be in Hollywood for the prestigious.

Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne, Amanda Seyfriend, “and others” are said to be set to be a part of the performance. The Daily Mail believes they’ll take on either “One Day More” or “Do You Hear The People Sing” – both rousing group ensembles that could stir the Dolby Theater.

Even more interesting: There are rumors of a medley being considered, with Hathaway performing an excerpt from “I Dreamed A Dream.”

No matter what the Les Miserables cast sings, it’s not the only highly-anticipated live act. Adele is expected to perform “Skyfall,” which she won a Golden Globe for this past Sunday.

Which song do you think the Les Miserables cast should perform? We think it’d be a bad idea for Hathaway to do any part of “I Dreamed A Dream” because the bar would be set very, very high. If it went wrong live, the image of her brilliant performance within the film would be slightly hurt. A group ensemble is a safe yet powerful choice because the weight is not put on any one star’s shoulders.

If they do indeed perform, we’ll be sure to bring you video. Les Miserables is nominated in eight categories at the 2013 Academy Awards.

    YES YES YES, a thousand times yes! This had better be true or I’m building a barricade outside the Dolby Theater on Oscar night in protest.

    I say yes, under the condition that Russell Crowe isn’t invited…but I suppose that would just be rude.

      Well, it is interesting that they didn’t say his name, but rather included him in the “others.”

    shouldn’t they be singing some kind of “Suddenly” version since that’s the nominated song from the film? or maybe it’s not just for the nom. maybe it’ll be a spoof medley! ha, yeah right.

    If they decide to do this, then I will definitely be watching. On an unrelated note, I love the picture of Eponine and Marius.

    I am SO on board for this! I really want them to do “One Day More,” it’s my favorite.

    please, please stop citing the daily mail as a source – do yourselves some credit!

    One Day More and Do You Hear the People Sing are two of my favorites!! I’m glad we have a movie that I actually love this year; I can’t WAIT for the Oscars.

    Considering Anne Hathaway’s previous singing experiences on the Oscars’ stage, she is more than capable of carrying the tune live [even though I do agree with you].

    I totally dig this. Wouldn’t it be awesome if they started out singing “Do you hear the people sing” very softly at first with everybody scattered in the audience and then as everybody makes their way to the stage, the song crescendos into an epic chorus?

    I think that would be awesome! :D

    I would love them to do One Day More, but that would mean no Anne, so I’m hoping they do some sort of medley, featuring everyone’s best bits. And I really hope The Confrontation makes the cut as well.


    Anne should definitly sing I dreamed a dream !!!!!!!!!!! <33333 Oh and Eddie shuld sing Empty chairs and empty tables(: <3
