‘All The Stars” Won’t Be Performed During the 91st Oscar Telecast

Just when it seemed like we were done with news relating to the actual Academy Award telecast, a new disappointment drops in. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences made an announcement today involving Best Original Song, and surprising absolutely nobody, it’s nothing good.

According to Deadline, AMPAS has announced that only four of the five nominees for Best Original Song will be performed during the Oscars. “Black Panther” and its nominated song “All The Stars” is the one that audiences won’t see. The song, from Kendrick Lamar, Sounwave, Anthony Triffith, and SZA, isn’t going to be included due to Lamar not being able to make it. His lack of availability has led to the other performers of the song opting to not do it without him. As such, Lamar’s representatives and the Academy decided to just scrap it altogether.

This is what the article posits will be done with the song during the presentation instead:

In regards to how “All the Stars” will be presented on the show, we hear the current plan is the track played against video clips.

The other four nominees are set to be performed still. The Academy has already announced who the performers are for each, including the just revealed Bette Midler. Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga will be doing “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born.” Jennifer Hudson will do “I’ll Fight” from “RBG.” The aforementioned Midler is doing “The Place Where Lost Things Go” from “Mary Poppins Returns.” Finally, David Rawlings and Gillian Welch will be doing “When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings” from “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.”
