The 91st Academy Awards are on the horizon – and there's an incredible roster of artists performing on the night. Here's more on the line-up...
Lavish frocks, emotional speeches and golden statuettes: the Oscars 2019 have arrived.
Now in its 91st year, the Academy will once again be celebrating the very best from across the film industry – and no party would be complete without performances from some of the world’s best-loved artists.
The two-time Oscar nominee – who has sold over 30 million records worldwide – is set to sing ‘The Place Where Lost Things Go’, which is nominated for Best Original Song.
So, (drum roll) Ladies and Gentlemen, I will be chanteusing (that's singing) on the Oscars on Feb 24...the nominated song from "Mary Poppins"..."The Place Where Lost Things Go" ...so excited!!— Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) February 17, 2019
A Star Is Born duo Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga will also be performing their hit song from the film, ‘Shallow’, which has taken the world by storm since its release and also nominated for Best Original Song.
Joining them on stage will be the band Queen and frontman Adam Lambert – the group and its original frontman Freddie Mercury were the subjects of one of the year's biggest films, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
The film is nominated in five categories this year, including Best Actor for Rami Malek who plays Freddie Mercury in the film.
Other stars on the line-up include American Idol's Jennifer Hudson – who previously won an Oscar for her performance in the 2006 musical Dreamgirls, and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs nominees Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.
The 91st Academy Awards are due to take place on Sunday 24 February at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood and will be broadcast on TV channel ABC at 8pm E.T./5pm P.T.
