Billy Pippin Boyd Will Sing the Final Song in The Hobbit

As The Hobbit trilogy comes close to inter-twining itself with the events of The Lord of the Rings (as is basically bound to happen) there's another piece of connective tissue in the works.

Warner Bros just posted a list of the categories and people they would like to be considered for Academy Award recognition in 2015, including the likes of Peter Jackson, Howard Shore and Martin Freeman but one part of the list is especially interesting, as it hasn't been announced yet.

The production would like their original song The Last Goodbye to be considered. This is penned not only by regulars Frank Walsh and Phillipa Boyens but also Billy Boyd. And the Scottish actor will also be taking on the vocal work.

You'll likely remember Boyd's name from his role as Pippin in Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy, which saw him playing the chracter until The Return of the King in 2003. One of his more memorable moments was in that third film when he provided some supper-time entertainment forJohn Noble'sDenethor.

The man has some pipes and also features in his own band by the name of Beecake. His presence on the soundtrack may have been foreshadowed by the song appearing in a recent teaser trailer for The Battle of the Five Armies but its a nice little extra for fans.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is in cinemas from the 12th of December 2014.
