Beyoncé is set to perform at the 94th Oscars, show producers Will Packer and Shayla Cowan announced Tuesday.
The Grammy-winning singer is nominated for original song alongside songwriter Dixson for “Be Alive” from tennis drama King Richard.
The official confirmation that Beyoncé will perform “Be Alive” at Sunday’s Oscars comes a day after Variety reported she was in talks to stage a live performance from a tennis court in Compton, California.
King Richard tells the story of Richard Williams, the ambitious and determined father of Venus and Serena Williams, who moved his family out of Compton by training his daughters become world champion tennis players.
The film has a total of six nominations, including Best Picture; Will Smith for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role; Aunjanue Ellis for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role; Pamela Martin for Best Achievement in Film Editing; and Zach Baylin for Best Original Screenplay; and original song.
Also set to perform at the Oscars are Billie Eilish and Finneas, Reba McEntire and Sebastián Yatra, all of whom will perform this year’s nominated songs.
The 94th Oscars will be held on Sunday, March 27, 2022, at the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood and will be televised live on ABC at 8 p.m. EDT/5 p.m. PDT.
