Rihanna took the stage at the 95th Academy Awards to perform ‘Lift Me Up’, her contribution to the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack. Watch it below.
‘Lift Me Up’ was nominated for Best Original Song, but ended up losing to RRR‘s ‘Naatu Naatu’. Lady Gaga’s ‘Hold My Hand’ (Top Gun: Maverick), Son Lux, Mitski, and David Byrne’s ‘This Is a Life’ (Everything Everywhere All at Once); Rahul Sipligunj, Kaala Bhairava, and M.M. Keeravani’s ‘Naatu Naatu’ (RRR), and Sofia Carson’s ‘Applause’ (Tell It Like a Woman) were also up for the ward.
Last month, Rihanna returned to live performance for the first time in five years at the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
