Oscars 2018: Mary J Blige, Sufjan Stevens, Common and more to perform

2018 Oscars Mary J. Blige Andra Day and more to perform

The 90th Oscars, which will air March 4, announced its lineup of performers Friday morning (February 23), and the roster could double as its own mini-festival.

We now know who will be taking the stage for musical reasons at the upcoming 90th Academy Awards ceremony.

Keala Settle is set to perform "This Is Me", which was written by La La Land songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

Blige will celebrate being the first person to be nominated for an acting award and an award for best original song in the same year by performing the song "Mighty River", which she wrote for "Mudbound" with Raphael Saadiq and Taura Stinson.

Get excited! It's been revealed that each Oscar-nominated artist for Best Original Song - including Mary J. Blige and Common - will take the stage to perform at the 2018 award show.

Common and Andra Day will perform "Stand Up for Something" from Marshall, which Common co-wrote with Diane Warren. The song was written Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who shared an Oscar previous year for the lyrics to "City of Stars" from "La La Land". Karen O was nominated for "The Moon Song" from Her and performed the song with Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig at2013's Oscars, but of course lost to Frozen's omnipresent "Let It Go".

During the evening, Miguel will perform Coco's "Remember Me" alongside Gael García Bernal and Natalia LaFourcade. In 2015 he and John Legend performed "Glory" from the film "Selma".

Stevens will make his Oscars debut with "Mystery of Love", from Luca Guadagnino's "Call Me by Your Name".

This year promises to have one of the most unpredictable Best Picture winners in years, and I'd bet on some other surprises along the way.
