Now these are some strange bedfellows…
For those who don't know, Joe is a big supporter of decreasing rapes on college campuses across America, so it makes sense he would intro the track, which is all about sexual violence awareness.
The VP also started the "It's On Us" campaign which encourages students to intervene if they know a sexual assault is taking place AND drafted the Violence Against Women Act.
As for the big show on Sunday, we wonder how J.B.'s slightly eccentric and humorous personality will mesh with the musician's serious tone, especially since the topic is also very sensitive. We guess only time will tell…
So, do YOU think the academy chose the right presenter for this performance?

Happy holidays from the White House!
But now that it's the holiday season, the tunes are a little different in the White House (or actually in Hawaii where the first fam is on vacay!).
POTUS shared his favorite Christmas songs with the world and found a way — with a little help from Michelle — to please just about everyone!
The holiday playlist includes classics like O Tannenbaum performed by the Vince Guaraldi Trio from A Charlie Brown Christmas, Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas is You, and of course a little Beyoncé with Destiny Child's 8 Days of Christmas!
Ch-ch-check out the rest of the head of state's holiday playlist (below):
This isn't too surprising.
Election time is right around the corner which means we're down to the wire for candidates wanting to throw their hat in the ring.
In terms of the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are leading the field of hopefuls in the polls, but there's been one other possible contender everyone's been waiting on — Vice President Joe Biden.
Recently there's been a lot of talk about whether or not Biden will run, but the VP has made it official by saying he will NOT be campaigning for the presidential nomination.
In a statement at the White House Rose Garden with President Barack Obama in attendance, the 72-year-old politician said:
This is surprisingly calculated.
Now, according to a report, it appears that VP Biden himself is the one who "leaked" the information that his son had asked him to run for president!
POLITICO reports that Biden himself called Maureen Dowd, columnist for the New York Times, to run the story about how Beau had, on his deathbed, made his father make a promise he'd run for president, with Beau's reasoning being:
Most late night talk show interviews include celebs telling funny anecdotes or playing silly games, but Stephen Colbert isn't afraid to have a poignant moment on The Late Show!
The Vice President elaborated on his previous statement that he wasn't sure he had the emotional strength to run for presidency in 2016 — saying that he didn't think anyone should run unless they could give "110 percent" of their heart, soul, energy, and passion to the job!
The 76-year-old then opened up about how he visited a military base and "just lost it" after talking to a soldier who served in Iraq with his son Beau.
We're sure most other late night hosts would get anxious from the lack of audience laughter, but Colbert is proving that it's okay to conduct a raw interview without pre-set jokes.
Check out the entire clip (below) — and skip to the 3:15 mark to hear Biden's emotional story:
However, unlike certain public figures who have copped to being tied to paid accounts, Hunter is adamant that the profile in question is absolutely NOT his.
He released a statement where he expresses that he's been framed in this situation:
"I am certain that the account in question is not mine. This account was clearly set up by someone else without my knowledge and I first learned about the account in question from the media."
The businessman-slash-lawyer says that he's been impersonated in the past:
Will it be so, Joe?!
Vice President Joe Biden is considering announcing a bid for the presidency in 2016, according to some insider reports — and a decision may be coming very soon!
Biden's decision supposedly hinges on both political and familial responsibilities — as opposed to chances of beating Hillary Clinton.
While he is reportedly considering a run very seriously, spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff wanted to be very clear that he has yet to officially go that route:
