The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has released the list of performers who will take the stage at the 2018 Oscars. This year’s Academy Awards ceremony will feature performances by Gael García Bernal, Mary J. Blige, Andra Day, Natalia LaFourcade, Miguel, Keala Settle, Sufjan Stevens, and Oscar winner Common. The confirmed list was announced by Oscar producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd.
“We’re excited to have these talented artists showcase the powerful contribution music makes to filmmaking,” stated De Luca and Todd. “It’s a privilege to welcome them to the 90th Oscars stage.”
Gael García Bernal, Natalia LaFourcade, and Miguel are set to perform “Remember Me,” the Oscar nominated song from Disney’s Coco. Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the Frozen team, wrote the music and lyrics. Miguel and LaFourcade recorded the end-credit version of “Remember Me,” which Miguel and Steve Mostyn produced.
Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominee Mary J Blige is confirmed to perform “Mighty River” from the critically acclaimed, four-time Oscar nominated film Mudbound. Blige co-wrote “Mighty River” with Raphael Saadiq and Taura Stinson. Blige holds the honor of being the first person to earn Oscar nominations in both a performance category and the Original Song category in the same year.
Common and Andra Day will take the Oscar stage to perform “Stand Up For Something” from Marshall starring Chadwick Boseman and Josh Gad. Diane Warren wrote the music and co-wrote the lyrics with Common. Common and John Legend took home the Best Original Song Oscar in 2014 for “Glory” from the dramatic film, Selma.
Keala Settle will sing the show-stopping number “This is Me” from The Greatest Showman. Settle starred in the dramatic musical along with Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, and Zendaya. The Oscar nominated song comes from La La Land‘s Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
Singer/songwriter Sufjan Stevens is on board to sing “Mystery of Love” from the dramatic coming-of-age film, Call Me by Your Name. Call Me by Your Name also earned Best Actor (Timothee Chalamet), Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Picture nominations.
