Anna Kendrick is “so nervous” about performing at the Academy Awards.

It was announced earlier this week that the Pitch Perfect actress would be putting on a ‘special performance’ at the ceremony on February 22. While no further details have been released, Anna has opened up about her anxiety over the role.

“Oh My God so nervous. I mean I get nervous any time I perform because it’s not really what I do,” she told Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on her chat show on Tuesday. “I’m so happy that people ask me to do it, but it’s not really my area so I do get really nervous so we’re gonna have to make sure that the heels are low and the dress is loose.”

The 29-year-old is able to mix music with acting in her career and it also means that she gets to go to awards ceremonies for both mediums. During her chat with Ellen, conversation turned to her attendance at the Grammys on Sunday in which she presented on stage. But before she had chance to do her bit, she revealed what happened when she crossed paths with big winner Sam Smith behind the scenes.

“I was backstage waiting to present t and Sam had just won best new artist and he came off stage. I've presented at a couple of award shows now, and there's always this moment after someone has won where it's like ‘what now?’” she told Ellen. “I was standing there and was like ‘congratulations!’ and he was like ‘Do you know where I'm supposed to go now?’ I love that moment because this beautiful thing has just happened and it’s so exciting and it’s this turning point in their lives, but the following 30 seconds are just [awkward].

“You're onstage at the Grammys, and Taylor Swift just presented your award to you, and you come backstage and it’s just Anna Kendrick in a sl***y pantsuit, doesn't know where to tell where to go. Just awkward.”
