Music superstars Beyonce and Billie Eilish will perform their nominated tunes at this year’s Academy Awards at the Dolby Theater
At this year’s Oscars, music giants Beyonce and Billie Eilish will perform sets for the Hollywood party.
The award-winning artists were each nominated for Best Original Song for their work on King Richard and No Time To Die at the 94th annual awards this Sunday.
Beyonce, 40, is nominated for Be Alive, which stars in the biopic of Richard Williams – father of tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams – with Will Smith in the title role.
Queen Bey will reportedly be broadcasting her performance from a tennis court in Compton where the sisters, who play world-class tennis, once trained.
Eilish, 20, has been nominated along with her brother Finneas O’Connell for their song No Time To Die, the theme song from the latest installment in the James Bond franchise.

The sibling duo have already racked up multiple wins for the song and are also scheduled to perform at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards next week.
Both Beyonce and Eilish will entertain viewers with the tunes they are nominated for, as will Reba McEntire and Sebastian Yatra.
Yatra will belt out Lin Manuel Miranda’s Dos Oruguitas from Encanto, while McEntire will take the stage to sing Diane Warren’s Somehow You Do from Four Good Days.
McEntire took to Twitter to share her pride at being asked to perform.
She tweeted: “Honored to perform ‘Somehow You Do’, written by @Diane_Warren, at this year’s 94th #Oscars.
Van Morrison, who was nominated for Best Song for Belfast’s Down To Joy, was also invited to perform but unfortunately his busy touring schedule for the star dashed plans.
That means the song is to be avoided at the ceremony, according to show producers Will Packer and Shayla Cowan.

There is a plethora of talent who will take to the big stage to also present assignments including Stephanie Beatriz, DJ Khaled, Elliot Page, Jennifer Garner, comedian Bill Murray and skateboarder Tony Hawk, all of whom were recently announced.
Also on the list are Mila Kunis, John Travolta, Daniel Kaluuya and Wesley Snipes, as well as Zoe Kravitz, Lady Gaga, Lily James, Uma Thurman and Rami Malek.
Anthony Hopkins, who won Best Actor last year, will also appear at the ceremony, which will take place on March 27 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.
