The 2018 Oscars are upon us, set to air this Sunday (March 4). While the annual awards are centered on the American film industry, there are a couple of categories designed for recognizing music, such as Best Original Score and Best Original Song.
As such, it is only fitting that the blacktie affair features live performances, with the artists whose music is nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song each taking to the stage.
As announced, this year’s ceremony, which will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, is set to feature performances from Miguel, alongside Gael Garcia Bernal and Natalia Lafourcade, who have been nominated for their heartfelt collaboration, “Remember Me (Dúo),” from Pixar’s Coco.
Additional performers include Mary J. Blige (nominated for “Mighty River” and also for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Mudbound), Common and Andra Day (nominated for “Stand Up for Something” from Marshall), Keala Settle (nominated for “This is Me” from The Greatest Showman) and Sufjan Stevens (nominated for “Mystery of Love” from Call Me by Your Name).
Revisit the nominated songs, below, and be sure to tune into ABC on March 4 at 8pm ET to catch this year’s ceremony.
