Adam Levine is bringing his guitar to the Oscars.

The Maroon 5 frontman is set to perform Begin Again's original song contender "Lost Stars," written by Gregg Alexander and Danielle Brisebois. The film, in which Levine made his feature film acting debut, also stars Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley.

He performed the song on The Voice in December, as a duet with his finalist Matt McAndrew.

Levine noted the news on Twitter on Monday morning.

"Lost Stars" is up for the honor against Common and John Legend's "Glory" from Selma, Glen Campbell and Julian Raymond's "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" from Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me, Rita Ora's version of Diane Warren's "Grateful" from Beyond the Lights, and The Lego Movie's "Everything Is Awesome," written by Shawn Patterson and performed by Tegan and Sara featuring The Lonely Island.

The Oscars will be held on Feb. 22 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, and will air live on ABC at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
