After a press conference last week confirming that Lady Gaga would definitely not be performing at this year’s Oscars due to Joker: Madness for Two commitments, the Oscars have apparently changed course and blessed Little Monsters everywhere. Lady Gaga will perform “Hold My Hand”, the Oscar-nominated song from Top Gun: Maverickat the evening’s ceremony, per Variety. Lady Gaga is up for Best Original Song along with fellow nominees Rihanna (“Lift Me Up”), Sofia Carson and Diane Warren (“Applause”), Stephanie Hsu, David Byrne and Son Lux (“This Is a Life”) and Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava (“Naatu Naatu”). That means every Best Original Song nominee will be performing tonight (yes, including Rihanna). Gaga’s performance will unfortunately not include Bradley Cooper this time, but as today’s news has shown: never say never.
