Anne Hathaway put her life in danger yesterday in NYC -- telling a huge throng of excited children that they just won a free trip to Hollywood to sing at the Oscars ... and they went WILD!!!

Okay, so the 5th graders weren't much of a threat ... they're the members of the PS22 Chorus -- famous for their takes on Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and more.

They are incredibly talented ... and adorable ... check out the video!
