Jennifer Hudson Will Sing at the Oscars as Academy Relents on 2 Songs

As it turns out, the Oscars have something more to sing about.

After Variety reported last week that the Oscar telecast would broadcast performances of only two of the five original-song nominees — a decision condemned by many film fans, including Lin-Manuel Miranda and your Carpetbagger — the academy announced Thursday on Twitter that at least two more musical numbers would be added.

It’s been reported that in pursuit of a three-hour running time, the Oscars for several tech categories will be given out during the commercial breaks and edited together into a package shown later on the show, another decision that has drawn fire. Only one thing is clear: With the hostless Oscar telecast fast approaching on Feb. 24, the ultimate layout of the show may provide as many surprises as the winners themselves.
