SET YOUR DVRS: OSCARS THIS SUNDAY

The Academy Awards will air live from Hollywood this Sunday 2/9 on ABC, and will feature a gaggle of musical performances.

Fresh off of her sweep of the Grammys, Darkroom/Interscope superstar Billie Eilish will perform on the show, likely with her co-writer/producer brother FINNEAS.

Janelle Monae was just announced as a performer, and the show will also feature an appearance by Questlove.

Additionally, the five nominees for Original Song will be performed on the telecast, and are:

"I Can't Let You Throw Yourself Away" (Toy Story 4) by Randy Newman - Newman will perform
"(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again" (Rocketman) by Elton John & Bernie Taupin - John will perform
"I'm Standing With You" (Breakthrough) by Diane Warren - Chrissy Metz will perform
"Into the Unknown" (Frozen 2) by Robert Lopez & Kristen Anderson-Lopez - Idina Menzel and AURORA will perform
"Stand Up" (Harriet) by Joshuah Brian Campbell & Cynthia Erivo - Erivo will perform

Notably, Warren has been nominated for 11 Oscars in this category, with this being her third nomination in the past three years. Newman has been nominated 22 times, and has won four. John has been nominated for four Oscars previously, and won once. And Menzel delivered a breakout performance in 2014 with the Oscar-winning "Let it Go" from the first Frozen film, which was also written by the Lopez duo.
