This year’s Oscars isn’t the easiest to go! From host drama to outrage about the certain awards cut from the live broadcast. It seems like that much-antedated awards sow is a lot less anticipating in comparison to usual. As there are plenty of iconic musical performances in Oscar history and this year could have offered some new ones for those of us who drink a lot of rosés and go down late-night YouTube rabbit holes.
It doesn’t matter that how much time the stars will get to perform on stage, the five nominated songs will get their on-air due—and Oscar viewers will be treated to an additional performance fastened to the Best Picture-nominated Bohemian Rhapsody.
Below is the list of the performers who will perform in the award show.
From the biographical documentary RBG about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Jennifer Hudson girdles the stirring song "I'll Fight" from the prolific songwriter Diane Warren (who, weirdly, has never won an Oscar despite her nine previous nominations).
Though Emily Blunt didn’t perform in the last year’s Mary Poppins sequel, yet Midler confirmed that she is going to sing the nominated tune “The Place Where Lost Things Go”, from the Disney film.
Gillian Welch and David Rawlings
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, in the opening segment of the song of Coen Brothers' western anthology, the titular singing cowboy Tim Black Nelson croons the actual song, “When a Cowboy Trades Hi Spurs For Wings”. The songwriters Welch and Rawlings have the duties to sign at the award show.
Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper
We have seen Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s great chemistry in the song as well as in the movie, but they no more want to play the same roles as played in the movie. But still, we get the chance to hear the song on Oscar on Sunday.
Queen and Adam Lambert
The American Idol alum has to tour with Queen for years now, and his dynamite voices perfectly blend to match the band’s melodrama- and a fitting choice for Freddie Mercury’s legacy. As it is not confirmed till now that what they will be performing, but still it could be a breaking of the typically stoic awards show.
