Karen O is set to perform with Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig at the Oscars tonight (March 2).

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer was spotted rehearsing her Oscar-nominated track 'The Moon Song', which featured in the Spike Jonze-directed Her, with Koenig on an acoustic guitar last night, according to Billboard.

A different version of the song to the one which featured in the movie was recently released. The alternative version featured Koenig on vocals and can be streamed below.

Meanwhile, Karen O recently spoke about her Oscar nomination for the first time. She is joined on the list of nominees for this year's Oscars by fellow musical acts U2 and Pharrell Williams.

Speaking about the nomination, Karen O said: "Holy smokes. I had zero clue! To say this was unexpected is an understatement." She added: "It's wild because 'The Moon Song' was written and recorded in the most humble of circumstances; at my dining room table, a few paces away from the couch [where] I read the script for 'Her' for the first time."
