Once in a Lifetime: David Byrne Will Perform “Everything” Song on Oscars with Son Lux and Stephanie Hsu


Yes, it’s happening.

David Byrne is going to perform on the Oscars. He will join Son Lux and Stephanie Hsu to sing “This is a Life” from “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” Hsu stars in the movie after launching from “Mrs. Maisel.” (Editors note: she’s a rising star!)

David Byrne on the Oscars! The ex leader of Talking Heads, Tony winner, who has an amazing show coming to Broadway this spring with “Here Lies Love.” That David Byrne! He won an Oscar for the original score of the 1987 film “The Last Emperor,” in collaboration with Ryuichi Sakamoto and Cong Su. This is going to be an historic show.

Also performing that night will be Rihanna, and Diane Warren with Sophia Carson. It’s assumed the next announcement will be Lady Gaga to sing her hit from “Top Gun Maverick.” The other so far unannounced performers are from “RRR.”

Stay tuned…
