Oscars bosses say no to Franco's Cher's cover

James Franco's dreams to cover Cher's Burlesque tune You Haven't Seen The Last Of Me at the Oscars have been dashed - show bosses have opted not to let him perform the track.

The Diane Warren track won a Golden Globe for Best Song, but was snubbed as an Academy Awards nominee - but that didn't stop co-host Franco from planning to honour the ballad.

Franco has posted a video of him performing the track badly on, writing, "They pulled this from the Oscar show. Damn it."
