In a recent update, it has been confirmed that Lady Gaga will be performing at the Oscars. An insider, who is closely associated with the production and has knowledge of the performance, confirmed the news to the Associated Press on Sunday afternoon.
According to the same source, Lady Gaga will be singing “Hold My Hand,” the Oscar-nominated original song from “Top Gun: Maverick.”
This announcement comes as a surprise to many as producers had previously said that Lady Gaga would not be able to perform due to her schedule on the “Joker” sequel.
However, a change of plans seems to have taken place, allowing Lady Gaga to be added to the Oscars telecast. With her performance, all the nominated original songs this year will have a showcase during the event. The news was first reported by Variety.
This will be Lady Gaga’s fourth Oscar nomination. In 2019, she won her first Oscar for Best Original Song for “Shallow” from “A Star is Born.”
She was also previously nominated for Best Actress in 2019 for her role in “A Star is Born” and Best Original Song in 2016 for “Til it Happens to You” from the documentary “The Hunting Ground.”
Apart from Lady Gaga, other artists who will be performing at the Oscars include Rihanna, who will perform “Lift Me Up” from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” and Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava, who will sing Chandrabose and M.M. Keeravaani’s “Naatu Naatu” from “RRR.” Songs from “Tell It Like a Woman” and “Everything Everywhere All At Once” will also be performed.
In conclusion, Lady Gaga’s performance at the Oscars is highly anticipated by her fans and movie enthusiasts alike.
With all the nominated original songs getting a showcase, this year’s Oscars telecast promises to be a treat for music lovers.
