Eddie Murphy Says He Won't Do Song and Dance Numbers Hosting the Oscars (VIDEO)

Eddie Murphy, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Don't look for an overblown dance number at the next Oscars ceremony. Host Eddie Murphy told David Letterman on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) that this was the very first thing he addressed when the whole idea was first broached.

"The first thing that came out of my mouth was, 'I'm not doing one of those crazy dance numbers,'" Murphy said.

"That's exactly what you're gonna be doing," Letterman responded, so we'll see who turns out to be right. Will Murphy stand his ground, or be pressured into giving a musical performance. We'll all find out February 26, 2012 when 'The 84th Academy Awards' hits the airwaves.

Murphy will be political, foul-mouthed (what fun to watch 3 hours of bleeping) and most likely boring. Bring back Billy Crystal!
