I hope you didn’t tune into last night’s stripped-down Oscars ceremony for the musical performances. If so, then you definitely missed them all, as the Best Original Song nominees were performed during the pre-show while the Red Carpet was going on.
Celeste, H.E.R., Leslie Odom, Jr., Laura Pausini, Daniel Pemberton, and Diane Warren performed live atop the Dolby Family Terrace, and by most accounts they were one of the highlights of the evening. But if there’s one that stood out to me it was Molly Sandén and her choir of Icelandic children singing the Oscar-nominated song “Husavik” from the actual town of Husavik. And as you might expect from a song from over-the-top Netflix comedy Eurovision, Sandén and her young charges go all-out.
Check out all of the Best Original Song performances that have been cleared by the artists. If the final two are made available I’ll update the post.
