"After the Best Picture award has been given, Seth and Kristin will perform a special number and we think it will be a 'can't miss' moment," producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a joint statement Thursday.

MacFarlane is to serve as emcee of the show, which will honor the best in film for 2012.
