Nikki Finke’s Deadline.com reported yesterday that "How I Met Your Mother’s" Neil Patrick Harris and former "Saturday Night Live" alum Martin Short would be doing a musical number to open the Oscar telecast on Sunday.
However, Harris today posted on Twitter that he will not be doing any such thing.
He wrote, "I will not be performing a duet with Martin Short to open the Oscars. Misinformation, I’m afraid. Should I maybe pull a Kanye, mid-show?"
