Confirmed: Lady Gaga Will Perform Oscar Nominated Song on Show Tonight After All


Yes, it’s true. I’ve confirmed that Lady Gaga will perform on the Oscars tonight, after all.

La Gaga will sing her Oscar nominated song “Hold My Hand” from “Top Gun Maverick.”

Ms. Germanotti was already booked as a guest in the audience but didn’t want to sing since she’s filming the new “Joker” movie.

But the Academy prevailed and we are all the luckier for it. I’m told she’s on stage in rehearsals even as I type this announcement.

If the show is smart they’ll put her on in the second hour, right in the middle of HBO’s “The Last of Us.”

A great Oscar night is coming!
