It is possible we may get a glimpse of Bono even if he is unlikely to be there in person.
This is from a ONE Campaign email:

As a supporter of The ONE Campaign, we want you to be the first to know about our brand new video that will premiere tomorrow night during the Oscars award show. Our new, celebrity-studded "ONE Word for the ONE Campaign" video will be featured during the Oscar broadcast on ABC. Be sure to tune in this Sunday, Feb 27 between 8:00 and 11:30 pm EST. Check your local listings.

This video calls on all Americans to raise their voice in the fight against global AIDS and poverty, and has been filmed across the world over the past two months with today's hottest celebrities. Your continued support has been the inspiration for the ONE Word video, so don't miss this exclusive premiere. Make sure to tell your family and friends to tune in as well, and encourage them to add their voice to this effort. You can easily forward this message by clicking here.

Along with this new video, we have just launched our new URL, where you can be one of the first to get your very own ONE white wristband. Worn by teachers, doctors, and homemakers, you've seen them in the pages of People and US Weekly on your favorite stars. Visit now to get yours!

On Tuesday, March 1, people around the country will be getting together and wearing their ONE wristbands as a display of solidarity in support of the fight against global AIDS and poverty. Be a part of this historic moment by going to now and getting your very own ONE wristband.

Also at read about our new "ONE in the Spirit" video, featuring Nashville recording artists such as Michael W. Smith and Jars of Clay. The three-minute video, featuring 16 of the biggest names in Christian music, will be featured at concerts, music festivals and places of worship across America in 2005 to rally support for The ONE Campaign.

From Hollywood to the Heartland, America's top actors and music artists are banding together with you to support the world's poorest nations. Tune into the Oscars and hear what people are saying about The ONE Campaign.

Thank you for all that you do,

The ONE Campaign Team
