Eddie Murphy says he won't be singing at the Oscars -- VIDEO

Eddie Murphy has now received sound advice from two former Oscar hosts: Steve Martin and David Letterman. While Martin joked that the upcoming Academy Awards emcee should go sans co-host (Jeez, where was he last year?!), Letterman told Murphy, who stopped by The Late Show on Tuesday night, that not only should he probably not do it (“It ain’t all it’s cracked up to be”), but if he does, he should do a Dreamgirls-style song-and-dance number. But Murphy, who joked earlier this week to Entertainment Tonight that he’s aiming to be “the worst host ever,” has no intention of doing so. Watch the clip below as Murphy does a song-and-dance number explaining why he won’t do a song-and-dance number.

Are you bummed Eddie Murphy is claiming he won’t sing or dance at the Oscars, PopWatchers? Or is it best to leave that to the likes of Billy Crystal? Who has given the Tower Heist star the best Oscar-hosting advice so far, Steve Martin or David Letterman? Share in the comments section below!
