The Academy Awards could be a big night for Marvel Studios and Black Panther, but one key piece of the celebration will be missing. Kendrick Lamar and SZA will not perform the film’s Oscar®-nominated original song “All the Stars” during the ceremony.
According to Variety, the Academy tried to secure Lamar and SZA to perform, but no agreement was reached. Logistics and timing are reportedly to blame. The song will not be performed by anyone else.
