Kendrick Lamar and SZA will not be performing (and it seems like not attending either) at the Oscars
Ending all speculation, it's now confirmed that Kendrick Lamar and SZA will not be performing their Oscar nominated song from 'Black Panther', “All the Stars”, and there are no plans to have anyone else perform it. This means that only four of the five original song numbers will be sung live this Sunday.
Variety's saying that 'logistics and timing' are the reasons they won't perform.
Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper will perform 'Shallow'; Gillian Welch and David Rowlings will perform 'When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings'; Bette Midler will perform 'The Place Where Lost Things Go'; and Jennifer Hudson will perform 'I’ll Fight' live on Sunday's telecast.
