The shows producers are staying tight-lipped on whether Dame Shirley will perform at the event, which will include a 50th anniversary tribute to the Bond films, saying only that she will make "a special appearance".
They said: "We are thrilled to welcome the legendary Dame Shirley Bassey to our Oscar show.
"Her association with film music is world renowned and we are proud that she will be making her first Oscar appearance on our telecast."
One person who definitely is performing on the night is Adele, who will sing Skyfall live for the first time.
