As per tradition, the songs nominated for best original song are performed during the show, spread out between presentations. The performances are often enhanced with elaborate sets and lighting, costumes and choreography. And this year, the nominated songs to be performed will be: 
  • Pop duo Tegan and Sara will perform “Everything Is Awesome” from The Lego Movie
  • Common and John Legend will perform “Glory” from Selma
  • Adam Levine will perform “Lost Stars” from Begin Again
  • Tim McGraw will perform “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me
  • Rita Ora will will perform “Grateful” from Beyond the Lights
 In addition to the above, other presenters will include:
  • Jack Black, who will make a special appearance. I suspect he’ll be a part of one of the sketches that our host Neil Patrick Harris will be carrying out.
  • Oscar nominee and Into The Woods star Anna Kendrick will also make an appearance.
  • Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson will also be putting up a performance.
  • Lady Gaga’s will be a special tribute performance on Oscar Night.

Another long-standing tradition followed at the Oscars is to have the previous year’s Oscar-winning actors—lead and supporting—to present the Oscars for lead and supporting actress, respectively, and vice-versa. This year, with last year’s winners, Cate Blanchett, Jared Leto, Matthew McConaughey and Lupita Nyong’o returning to present, it seems like tradition will continue. The other presenters on Oscar Night will be:
