The Oscars brought the star power AND the spectacle when it came to the Best Original Song performances!
Rihanna followed up her Super Bowl Halftime Show with a very different kind of performance for the elegiac Lift Me Up from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. And Lady GaGa brought it again (sans Bradley Cooper this time) with her Top Gun: Maverick anthem Hold My Hand. And Sofia Carson joins 14-time (!!!) nominee Diane Warren for Applause from Tell It Like A Woman.
Then Stephanie Hsu, the breakout star of Everything Everywhere All At Once, teamed with Talking Heads singer David Byrne and Son Lux for the appropriately strange yet beautiful This Is A Life. And (spoiler alert) the winner, Naatu Naatu from RRR, was performed by Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava and a stage full of AMAZING dancers!
See it all (below)!
