“Shallow” will be performed at the Academy Awards alongside several other Best Original Song nominees: “When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings” (Gillian Welch and David Rawlings), “I’ll Fight” (Jennifer Hudson), and “The Place Where Lost Things Go” (“a surprise special guest” who has to be Julie Andrews, right?)
There has not been confirmation yet that Kendrick Lamar and SZA will take the stage to perform their Best Original Song nominee “All The Stars,” but despite the initial thought that there would only be time for a few songs on the broadcast the Academy has apparently offered airtime for each of the Best Original Song nominees to perform, if they would like to.
The Oscars performance will be the second time that Gaga and Cooper have performed the song live, following Cooper’s surprise appearance at a recent Enigma show in Las Vegas. Along with the nomination for Best Original Song, A Star Is Born is nominated for Best Picture, and Lady Gaga is nominated for Best Actress for her role as Ally in the film.
The Academy Awards broadcast will take place on Sunday, February 24 on ABC.
