Broadcast live from the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, the event will be livestreamed with American Sign Language interpretation on the Academy’s YouTube channel for Deaf or hard of hearing viewers, marking a first for the ceremony. The schedule includes the first live performance of Encanto’s “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” and four of the five nominated songs will be performed. Sebastián Yatra will sing Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Dos Oroguitos” from Encanto Beyoncé will sing “Be Alive” (co-written with Dixson) from King Richard.
