Beyoncé to Perform at the Oscars?
There are talks that Beyoncé will perform at the upcoming 94th Oscars Ceremony, as reported by Variety.
The superstar recorded the track “Be Alive” for the film “King Richard” and co-wrote the song with artist Dixson.
“Beyoncé’s camp has been in deep talks with producers to mount a satellite performance of the song — one that would possibly open the show, and broadcast live from tennis courts in Compton, Calif.” The concept began solidifying last Monday, three individuals with knowledge of the talks said.
Venus and Serena grew up in Compton, which is also the location of their formative tennis years with their father Richard, mother Orcene, and sisters.
An Academy spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment. A Beyoncé spokesperson couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
It’s not the first time Beyoncé has performed at the Oscars. “In 2005, the singer performed numerous tracks in the best song category on the live broadcast, including “Learn to Be Lonely” from the feature remake of “The Phantom of the Opera.” She sang alongside Jennifer Hudson and Anika Noni Rose in 2007 with a medley from “Dreamgirls,” and also in 2009 to accompany host Hugh Jackman in a montage celebrating movie musicals.”
The 2022 Academy Awards will air this Sunday, March 27, on ABC.
