The 89th annual Academy Awards is taking place right now at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre, where some of the most celebrated films of the year will vie for Oscar gold. But, just like in previous years, music will play a big role during tonight’s ceremony.
All five nominations for Best Original Song will be performed by some of the biggest names in the industry. Justin Timberlake will sing his hit track “Can’t Stop the Feeling” from Trolls; Sting will perform “The Empty Chair” from Jim: The James Foley Story; Lin-Manuel Miranda will deliver Moana’s “How Far I’ll Go”; and John Legend will sing both “Audition” and “City of Stars” from La La Land.
In addition to the Best Original Song performances, Grammy-nominated Sara Bareilles will take the stage for the In Memoriam segment.
We will provide coverage for each musical number throughout the night. Be sure to keep it locked for updates.
