The 92nd annual Academy Awards aired live from Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre Sunday night (February 9).
Opting to go hostless yet again, the ceremony may primarily honor the film industry’s best offerings over the past year, but – as the awards’ 2020 edition proved – its dedication to saluting the music found aboard those same celebrated movies endures.
To emphasize that point, chart champions Eminem, Billie Eilish, Cynthia Erivo, Elton John, Janelle Monae, and more were on hand to render live performances.
Look inside if you missed any of the action:

Janelle Monae is a complete and total slay. She SANGS, SANGS live, she can perform both theatrical and regular, she writes, she plays instruments, she acts, she’s fashion.. she is the complete and total package- THE REAL DEAL! Legend in the making.
Janelle showed up and showed out!
Performing at the Academy Awards, rockin a return to her signature ‘legacy’ attire, wasn’t lost on me either.
Thank goodness, no beyonce.
Image her performing that flop called spirit, struggling to do a falsetto. No thanks
Cynthia erivo ate all these bìtches including u sir Elton John.
As always….. The QUEEN is always in the conversation even when she isn’t nominated, in attendance, or performing!
We all know if she did perform nobody else would be talked about…. STAY PRESSED!
Eminem lip syncing for dear life.
Billie Eilish did great.
Cynthia did great.
Janelle did great.
Elton was pretty good too.
Janelle brought back the vintage metropolis ep look! I LOVE!!! Cynthia was stunning https://youtu.be/TzyYbtwtKgc
Cynthia deserves that standing o
Mistook Idina for Cardi. But then realized Cardi doesn’t belt (even if I was impressed by her singing on that French Montana feature). ?
