Jennifer Hudson, Lady Gaga Among 2019 Academy Awards Musical Performers

Published: Monday 18th Feb 2019 by Rashad

We’re less than a week away from the 91st annual Academy Awards and, much like Hollywood, we are buzzing!

Beyond the fashions and the show’s biggest star (the awards), chatter around the picks for this year’s musical performers is growing.  To answer the anticipation the Academy recently announced details for the ‘Best Original Songs’ to be performed during the ceremony.

Among the names?  Grammy winners Lady Gaga and Jennifer Hudson.  More inside:


“Shallow” from A Star Is Born, Performed by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper

“I’ll Fight” from RBG, Performed by Jennifer Hudson

“When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings” from The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Performed by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings


“The Place Where Lost Things Go” from Mary Poppins Returns, Performed by Bette Midler


In addition to the acts above, it’s been reported that ‘American Idol’ alum Adam Lambert will lead Queen in a performance of songs from the group’s historic catalog.

The awards air 8 p.m. EST / 5 p.m. PST on ABC on Feb. 24.

    I haaaaate Jennifer Hudson’s overdone rendition of ANY song! All she does is scream & hollar. She gives unnecessary runs & is always just all over the place. It’s TOO MUCH!!

      How does get booked for the major shows. Aaaargh ! The audience better have some earplugs on.

      I agree. I had never heard the song until this article and in the famous words of Blanche Devereaux: I don’t understand how music that loud can be so boring! This is one of the most generic songs I’ve ever heard and Jennifer “Fog horn” Hudson screaming it doesn’t make the pat message anymore compelling. Having said that, good for JHud, she’s performing again at the Oscars, is on two versions of The Voice and is playing Aretha, she works hard even though I only like a small handful of her songs. But I wouldn’t want to be in the audience when she hits the stage.

    She’s even screaming in that thumbnail. Not a fan of JHud, but she stays booked *shrug*
