Common, Mary J. Blige To Perform At The Academy Awards

Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood will not perform, but the Best Original Score nominee (for Phantom Thread) did previously confirm that he would attend the awards show. Yes, the most buzzed-about awards go to actors, directors, and producers, but music continues to play a larger part each year.

Bernal's credits also include the Oscar-winning films "Babel" (2006) and "The Motorcycle Diaries" (2004), as well as the Oscar-nominated films "No" (2012), "El Crimen del Padre Amaro" (2002), "Y Tu Mama Tambien" (2002) and "Amores Perros" (2000). This year's nominees are all set to perform during this year's show.

"The Shape of Water" cleaned up and James Franco was snubbed. Blige performed the song for Mudbound, and she is nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category. Industry favorites like Common and Sufjan Stevens will also be playing their much celebrated nominated songs over the course of the night. He co-wrote the lyrics.

There's not a strong history of indie rockers performing at the Oscars, simply because they aren't often nominated for Best Original Song.

Keala Settle will deliver "This Is Me", which she performs in "The Greatest Showman". "Mystery of Love" will be released on a limited edition 10-inch vinyl single on Record Store Day also featuring Stevens' other two songs from the Call Me By Your Name soundtrack, "Visions of Gideon" and "Futile Devices (Doveman Remix)".

The 90th Oscars, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel for the second straight year, will be held on Sunday March 4 at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood and broadcast live on the ABC Television Network at 5 p.m.
