Now that Neil Patrick Harris can (almost) cross hosting the Oscars off of his bucket list, he’s ready to assemble his ceremonial dream team with some chart-shattering chanteuses.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly's Matt Bean on Sirius XM’s Town Hall, Harris jokingly revealed that Lady Gaga, Adele, or Pink could be a great duet partner, and while he has major hosting experience on the primetime stage (three Emmys and four Tonys), he’s approaching the Academy with new fervor.
“I hope that I can keep it smart,” Harris said. “I’ve always loved the Oscars and have great respect for its history and the gowns and the classiness of it.”
Listen to snippets of Harris’ interview below and tune in when he bows on the Academy stage February 8, 2015. Who knows?! A Grammy gig—and hosting EGOT—could be next!
