The White House announced Biden's plans for attendance Thursday, CNN reported; it comes shortly after Biden made a surprise appearance at a private screening of Tina Fey's Whiskey Tango Foxtrot in Hollywood.

Gaga's song, co-written by Diane Warren, is nominated for an Oscar for best original song.
