Oscars: Taylor Swift Throws Her “Cats” in the Ring with Andrew Lloyd Webber for Best Song with “Beautiful Ghosts”


Taylor Swift would like an Oscar, too, you know. That’s why she’s in Tom Hooper’s “Cats,” coming in December. It’s not surprising that she sings the song over the end credits, written with Andrew Lloyd Webber, called “Beautiful Ghosts.” You can hear some of it below in the clip they’ve released promoting the collaboration. Swift will be up for all kinds of Grammys in late January for her “Lover” album. Then she could be up for an Oscar two weeks later at the Academy Awards.

There are a lot of great songs this year from different films, including Diane Warren’s “I’m Standing with You” from the movie “Breakthrough,” two Elton John songs (one from “Rocketman” and one from “The Lion King”), Regina Spektor has a very good song from “Bombshell.”
