BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., March 1 (UPI) -- In preparation for Sunday's Academy Awards broadcast, Pharrell Williams ran through his No. 1 hit "Happy" some half dozen times alongside Idina Menzel, U2 and Karen O, who were also rehearsing Saturday.

The musicians are performing their Oscar-nominated songs during the awards ceremony at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, Calif., Fox News reported.

"All I care about is the fun," Williams said to actress Kate Hudson, who was also on hand to rehearse her part in the night's festivities.

Williams' "Happy" is nominated for the animated "Despicable Me 2;" O's "The Moon Song" is nominated for "Her;" Menzel's "Let It Go" is nominated for "Frozen;" and U2's "Ordinary Love" is nominated for "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom."
