This year the 91st Academy Awards were one of the best shows they’ve had in while despite not having a host. Many categories that usually are given out during the commercial breaks were broadcasted. The music performances were also a huge step up from years past because they had Queen, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, and Jennifer Hudson.

Queen opened up the 91st Academy awards and had everyone on their feet. They opened up with “We Will Rock You”, and everyone in the audience was doing the stomp-stomp-clap. After “We Will Rock You” the band preceded onto “We Are the Champions”. The entire crowd was waving their hands and singing along to the music. The band included original members Brian May on the guitar and Roger Taylor on the Drums. They also had Adam Lambert, who had been singing the songs for nine years now, singing lead vocals. At the end of the performance, there was a picture of Freddie Mercury on the back screen. Queen was there to support the movie based off their lives, Bohemian Rhapsody. They ended up taking home four out of the five Oscars they were nominated for, including Best Actor, which went to Rami Malek who played Freddie Mercury.

Towards the beginning, Jennifer Hudson performed the song “I’ll Fight” from the movie RBG. She got a lot of hate for her performance because she missed a few notes, but it is a very hard song to sing live. Kacey Musgraves introduced Gillian Welch and David Rawlings to perform their Oscar nominated song “When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings” from the Coen Bros. film The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, introducing a western feel to the Oscars.

About halfway through the show Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper preformed their smash hit “Shallow”. Gaga played the piano while Bradley sang, and then she sang her part. Although Cooper is not the best singer, he delivered a great performance. When Gaga came in, she was absolutely outstanding. Her vocals sounded better live than on the studio version. During the performance, you could feel the chemistry at the ceremony and see it on the screen. Near the end of the performance, Bradley went to sit next to Gaga as she continued to play the piano and sang in the same microphone to finish the performance. They received a standing ovation. Later into the night, Lady Gaga accepted an Oscar for Best Original Song for “Shallow.”

In conclusion, the 91st Oscars were one of the best years for the award ceremony. The music was great and well performed.
