Also taking the stage on Sunday will be performers representing the nominees for best original song.
Jennifer Hudson will sing “I’ll Fight” from “RBG,” Gillian Welch and David Rawlings will duet on “When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings” from “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,” and Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga will do “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born.”
The Academy had previously announced a performance by “a surprise special guest” for “The Places I’ll Go” from “Mary Poppins Returns.” It was later revealed to be Bette Midler.
No announcement has officially been made regarding whether Kendrick Lamar and SZA will be performing the Oscar-nominated hit “All the Stars” from “Black Panther.”
Variety reported last month that the Academy’s original plans were to only have two nominated songs performed during the telecast, but in keeping with its track record this year, walked back on that decision after backlash.
