Anne Hathaway, In Oscar Promo, Sings 'Evita,' Shakes Her Rump

Posted: Updated:

Expect a clash of classics and... rump shaking in Sunday's Oscar telecast.

Anne Hathaway, joined by James Franco as very untraditional Oscars co-hosts, is working to quiet the doubts about her comedic chops and get viewers excited about a new generation of hosts. And if she can go from classic opera to hip hop like this on the real telecast, well, the Academy may have made a very inspired choice.

The star, continuing her series of re-imagined film classics, quickly makes the switch from the iconic "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" from Evita to Wreckx-N-Effect's "Rump Shaker" in this promo. It's hard to tell whether she's more dictator's wife or hip hop impresario -- why don't you watch and decide?

But remember: no cruel jokes. After all, Hathaway won't be making them, either. Hear that, Ricky Gervais?
