Harris took to Twitter on Tuesday to reveal some exclusive Oscars dirt that could make the entire evening.
“I got a little Oscar exclusive,” Harris says in his Twitter video. “We’re happy to announce Kristen and Robert Lopez — Academy Award winners from the musical, Frozen, last year — have joined our creative fray. What they’re doing, I’m not at liberty to say. But I can tell you it won’t be a song called ‘Let it O’ with a big giant Swarovski O in the background.”
Which would kinda, sorta be hilariously fantastic, let’s be real.
But, OK, we’re just going to have to settle for something else it seems. But we’re expecting it to be equally as awesome.

Oscar producers, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, confirmed the news in a statement to E! News, saying, “We couldn’t be happier to have Kristen and Bobby Lopez write an incredibly special song for Neil Patrick Harris and special guests to perform this year on the Oscar stage. YouTube get ready!”
Could this be a show that will inspire a tweet greater than Ellen’s in 2014?
We really, really hope so.
Not only was Harris’ news exciting for the Oscars, it was also monumental for Twitter, which used Harris’ announcement as a way to launch the mobile video feed embed feature. Of course, just like the character count, Twitter users are limited to just 30 seconds to share their news.
The Oscars air live Sunday, Feb. 22 on ABC.
