Oscars - Talent - Stage - Original - Song

The Oscars will once again feature some major talent on the stage with its Original Song nominees.

The 2020 Academy Awards will welcome a variety of singers for the Feb. 9 telecast, including Elton John, Cynthia Erivo, Chrissy Metz, Randy Newman and Idina Menzel.

John - Hand - Gon - Me - Again

John will be on hand to sing “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” from his biopic Rocketman, a new song he wrote the music for with longtime collaborator and writer Bernie Taupin.

Erivo, who is the only person of color nominated in the acting categories for Harriet, will perform “Stand Up” from the Harriet Tubman biopic.

Actress - Singer - Person - Nominations - Acting

The actress and singer is the third person to earn nominations in both the acting categories and the Original Song category in the same year. Mary J. Blige first did it in 2018 for Mudbound and Lady Gaga followed last year for A Star Is Born.

Menzel will make her return to the Oscars stage with “Into the Unknown” from Frozen 2, the follow up anthem to the smash hit “Let It Go” from the original 2013 movie. “Let It Go” went on to win the Oscar at the 2014 telecast, which featured the infamous moment when John Travolta introduced her as “Adele Dazeem.”
