Becky G can't wait to step onto that Oscars stage. ET's Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner spoke with the Los Angeles native on the red carpet at the Dolby Theatre for the 2022 Oscars Sunday, where she shared what it means to her to not only be at the show for the first time, but to be performing "We Don't Talk About Bruno" from Disney's hit film, Encanto, during the big show.

"It's my first time at the Oscars so I had to come in with a bang," the 25-year-old singer said about her light pink, strapless sparkling gown.

The performance is set to be one of the most anticipated of the night, with Becky telling ET that it's an "honor" for her to be sharing the stage with some of the film's incredible cast, including Adassa, Stephanie Beatriz, Mauro Castillo, Carolina Gaitan and Diane Guerrero and fellow Latin music star Luis Fonsi.

"So, I was born and raised in Inglewood, and with traffic it always felt like Hollywood was really far, so this is a really big honor for me to be here, and to be sharing the stage with such an incredible cast with such a big song like 'We Don't Talk About Bruno,'" she gushed. "It's awesome."

Becky was riding solo at the 94th annual awards, sharing that her longtime boyfriend, former L.A. Galaxy soccer star Sebastian Lletget, got traded to the New England Revolution and couldn't be by her side Sunday.

"My man lives in Boston. He got traded," Becky shared before gushing over the midfielder. "It's going amazing! I love him, I'm so proud of him. He's now playing for the New England Revolution, so praying for a good season."

While Lletget is surely cheering her on from the East Coast, she has her hometown crew watching too.

"My Abuelitos are watching, my uncles and aunts are watching, my baby cousins are watching, my mom," she said before blowing a kiss to her family at home. "Besitos to everybody."
