"Me and my husband rohan are expecting a baby, so i wont be able to perform on Oscar night" , Says Dido

Dido wont be able to perform her oscar nominated song 'If I rise' on Oscar night :( . She tweeted about this

"It’s been a month of amazing news for me and now I have some more to share. Me and my husband rohan are expecting a baby (Congratulation :) and we’re beyond happy and excited about it. So as some of you already know, I won’t be able to travel to LA for the oscars ceremony to perform ‘if I rise’.

Obviously I’m really gutted about not being there – going to the oscars has literally been a dream of mine since I was about 9 - but I’m absolutely thrilled that the wonderful florence welch has agreed to step in and sing the song. I can’t wait to hear her sing it as I’m a huge fan of hers and she’ll sound amazing. I will definitely be watching the whole thing live on tv and texting rollo (who is going to be at the ceremony. But not singing... Thankfully... :-))

Also, me and AR are going to be filming a video for ‘if I rise’ next week which I’m really looking forward to (wwooooow).
Love, Dido
