Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper to Perform “Shallow” at the 2019 Oscars
The Academy has announced that Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper will perform at the 2019 Academy Awards. The announcement was posted on Twitter, where a spokesperson from the organization said that the duo would be performing their A Star Is Born song “Shallow,” as Pitchfork points out. “Cooper. Gaga. ‘Shallow.’ #Oscars,” the spokesperson wrote on Twitter.
Over the last few days, the organization has also confirmed that numerous other Best Original Song nominees will perform their songs live at the 2019 ceremony. Gillian Welch and David Rawlings will perform their song “When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings” from the Coen Brothers’ six-part Netflix film The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Jennifer Hudson will perform the song “I’ll Fight” from RBG, and a “surprise special guest” will perform “The Place Where Lost Things Go” from Mary Poppins Returns.
The tweets however do not confirm whether or not Kendrick Lamar or SZA will perform their Black Panther single “All The Stars,” which is also nominated for Best Original Song. Both Black Panther and A Star Is Born are nominated for Best Picture, with the former also up for Best Original Music Score, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing, and more.
