Mary J. Blige, Common, and Miguel are set to provide the soundtrack for the 90th Annual Academy Awards.
Making history as the first person nominated for acting and writing an original song in the same year, Best Supporting Actress nominee MJB is set to hit the stage on Oscar Sunday for a rendition of “Mighty River” from Netflix’s acclaimed film Mudbound.
Miguel will be sky walking into the Oscars for the first time, where he will perform “Remember Me” from Disney’s animated film Coco. He will be joined onstage by singer Natalia Lafourcade and actor Gael García Bernal, who stars in the film.

Common is also slated to make his return to the Oscars, where he will join forces with Andra Day for “Stand Up for Something” from Marshall. In 2015, the Chicago rapper famously performed “Glory” from Selma with John Legend. The latter track ended up winning Best Original Song that year.
Other performers include Sufjan Stevens (“Mystery of Love” from Call Me By Your Name) and Keala Settle (“This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman).
Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the 90th Annual Academy Awards is set to air live Sunday, March 4, from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
