The Oscars have revealed what performers will appear in this year’s ceremony. Beyoncé, Billie Eilish, FINNEAS, Reba McEntire, and Sebastián Yatra will be on stage in the 2022 Oscars. While nominee Van Morrison was also invited, he wont’ be able to attend the ceremony because he’s busy with his tour. Unfortunately, that means his song “Down to Joy” from Belfast won’t be performed. But that’s not how the Oscars has been in the past. Previously, even if nominees couldn’t attend the show, someone else was invited to sing their songs instead. In 2022, though, they’ll be wiped from the schedule entirely.

Final voting for the 94th Oscars ended on March 23 at 5 p.m. PT and the results will surely shock the public. After all, this year is full of promising compositions. This includes “Be Alive” from King Richard with music and lyrics by Dixson and Beyoncé and “Dos Oruguitas” from Encanto with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Other 2022 Oscars nominees are “No Time to Die” from No Time to Die with music and lyrics by Billie Eilish and FINNEAS and “Somehow You Do” from Four Good Days by Diane Warren. That said, multiple nominees have already achieved success with their compositions — “No Time to Die” has already won hearts and awards this season at the Golden Globe and Critics Choice Awards.

All Deserve To Win

Eilish is also on the way to grand recognition for her talents. If she wins, the singer will be the youngest in the category’s history at 20 years old. Last year, H.E.R. took that position at 23 years old at the time. Meanwhile, Miranda could become the latest EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony) recipient and Diane Warren could finally receive an Oscar after 13 nominations.

Variety prophesizes that Beyonce’s performance could overthrow all the previous Oscar appearances. Sources say that “Be Alive” will be live broadcasted via satellite from the tennis courts in Compton, California where Venus and Serena Williams practiced their skills with their father, Richard. However, the Academy has neither confirmed nor denied that statement. 

Of course, Miranda’s “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” will be a part of the 2022 Oscars, according to Deadline. Although not on the nominee list, the song (as well as the animated film Encanto) is extremely popular. In addition to nominations for Animated Feature and Original Song, Encanto is also in the running for Germaine Franco’s Original Music Score. Hans Zimmer is also nominated for for his work in Dune but he won’t be attending. His schedule is also too busy for the show and he’ll be in Amsterdam at the time of the ceremony.

Produced by Will Packer and Shayla Cowan, the 2022 Oscars will air live on March 27 from the Dolby Theatre. You can watch it on ABC at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. American Sign Language (ASL) translations will be provided by Certified Deaf Interpreters as part of the live show.
