Sufjan Stevens is set to perform at this year’s Oscars on March 4, singing his nominated song “Mystery of Love.” We have already shed a solitary tear just out of anticipation.
Of course, he won’t be doing “Visions of Gideon” off of the Call Me By Your Name soundtrack (to our knowledge), so we aren’t in danger of a full, irreparable meltdown. Just a mental break that lasts a couple weeks.
Other performers include (scream!): Mary J. Blige singing the Mudbound nominee “Mighty River,” Gael García Bernal, Miguel and Natalia Lafourcade singing “Remember Me” from Coco, Common and Andra Day for “Stand Up for Something” from Marshall, and Keala Settle for The Greatest Showman’s “This Is Me.”
It’s time we listened and emotionally abused ourselves.
