(Relaxnews) – “Fifty Shades of Grey” lead Dakota Johnson, “12 Years a Slave” star Chiwetel Ejiofor, singer and “Ice Age” actress Jennifer Lopez, comedy veteran Eddie Murphy and pop star Lady Gaga are among the new names booked to appear at the 87th Oscars on February 22.

Joining them are Chris Evans, Chloë Grace Moretz and Margot Robbie, with Neil Patrick Harris already installed to present the ceremony.

Lady Gaga is also joining in the annual film industry festivity, for what is being called a “special tribute performance” — though any further details than that are being kept under wraps.

She joins Oscar hopefuls Adam Levine, John Legend and Rita Ora, as well as Tegan & Sara, Anna Kendrick and Jennifer Hudson — who appeared alongside Eddie Murphy ten years back in the acclaimed “Dreamgirls” — who will likewise deliver performances during the show.

The 87th Academy Awards ceremony is to take place at the Dolby Theatre, Hollywood, Los Angeles, from 5:30pm PST on February 22 (1:30am GMT, Feb 23).
