It’s award season alright!

The 2020 Academy Awards are less than a month away, and the performers for the ceremony have been announced. As it has become tradition, all nominees for Best Song will take the stage at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles on Feb. 9. Elton John, Idina Menzel, Randy Newman, Chrissy Metz, and Cynthia Erivo will all showcase their music contributions from their respective films.

Here are the list of nominees for Best Original Song.

  • ‘I Can’t Let You Throw Yourself Away’ by Randy Newman from Toy Story 4
  • ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ by Elton John from Rocketman
  • ‘I’m Standing With You’ by Chrissy Metz from Breakthrough
  • ‘Into The Unkown’ by Idina Menzel from Frozen II
  • ‘Stand Up’ by Cynthia Erivo from Harriet

“We’re excited to have an incredible group of nominees and performers who will deliver one-of-a-kind music moments you will only see on the Oscars,” said producers Lynette Howell Taylor and Stephanie Allain.

One-of-a-kind moments indeed. Just last year, the Oscars were the site of the only televised performance of ‘Shallow’ by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper from A Star Is Born. You can watch that below.
