On Thursday, it was announced that Encanto cast members Adassa, Stephanie Beatriz, Mauro Castillo, Carolina Gaitan and Diane Guerrero, along with Becky G and Luis Fonsi, will perform “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” from Encanto during the Oscars. This will be the first live performance of the song written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, who is nominated for Best Original Song for “Dos Oruguitas,” also from Encanto.
Beyoncé will perform "Be Alive" from King Richard, Eilish and FINNEAS will perform "No Time to Die" from the James Bond film of the same name, McEntire will perform "Somehow You Do" from Four Good Days, and Yatra will perform "Dos Oruguitas" from Encanto.
"Down to Joy" from Belfast is also nominated in the category, but Van Morrison had to turn down an offer to perform during the telecast due to his ongoing tour.
The news comes after the Academy announced that there will be an all-star band featuring drummer Travis Barker, iconic percussionist and singer Sheila E. and prolific pianist Robert Glasper at the 2022 ceremony.
The awards show's music director, Adam Blackstone, will lead the group in performances during the show as well as with an in-house orchestra, returning to the Oscars stage this year after last year's modified ceremony. The Samples, a vocal group led by Jason White, also will appear on the show.
Also performing at this year's Oscars, as well as at the post-show Governors Ball, will be DJ D-Nice, who will bring the unifying fun of his Club Quarantine livestreams to the Academy stage.
