Oscars Performances: Beyoncé Opened With 'Be Alive' And Megan Thee Stallion Surprises With 'We Don't Talk About Bruno'

Film's biggest night wasn't short of surprises in the slightest.

Aside from Will Smith and Chris Rock's onstage rift that left everyone stunned, the 94th Academy Awards had some pretty incredible moments that people are still raving about.

Among those moments are the musical performances given by some of the biggest stars in the industry.

Beyoncé opened the ceremony by performing "Be Alive" from 'King Richard.'

The 2022 Oscars got off to a great start all thanks to the Queen Bey herself, Beyoncé.

Before the ceremony got underway, tennis legends Venus and Serena Williams took the stage to introduce the singer, who performed “Be Alive” from the  Best Picture nominee King Richard on their famed hometown tennis court.

The performance began with Beyoncé’s dancers walking down a Compton street wearing tennis ball colored outfits and donning beads in their hair. The camera then panned to the tennis court, where Beyoncé stood surrounded by dancers and musicians.

Beyoncé did not disappoint as she put on electrifying production, filled with impeccable choreography, amazing vocals, and an appearance by her and Jay-Z’s daughter Blue Ivy.

Another Oscars moment we’re still talking and singing about is when the cast of Disney’s Encanto — Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Diane Guerrero (Doom Patrol) — along with reggaeton singer Adassa, and Colombian musicians Carolina Gaitán and Mauro Castillo — took the stage to perform “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.”

They were joined by singers Becky G, Luis Fonsi, and Megan Thee Stallion, who guaranteed that this song will grow in popularity even more by adding a few rap verses.
