The Oscars want the Best Song nominees to perform for 90 seconds only

Last week, it was revealed that only two of the five nominations for Best Original Song would be performed at the 2019 OscarsLady Gaga’s A Star Is Born hit ‘Shallow’ and Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s Black Panther soundtrack single ‘All The Stars.’ 

This decision by the Motion Picture Academy received widespread backlash and a result it looks like all of the nominees will have the chance to perform… for 90 seconds. 

Nominated songs include ‘The Place Where Lost Things Go’ from Mary Poppins Returns, Jennifer Hudson’s ‘I’ll Fight’ from RBG, and ‘When A Cowboy Trades His Spurs For Wings,’ which Gillian Welch and David Rawlings wrote for the Coen Brothers’ Netflix Western anthology The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs.”

So far it looks like Jennifer Hudson is the only artist to have agreed to the micro-set.  Awkward.
