Oscars 2022: Beyonce to Perform at the Award Ceremony?

Beyonce is in talks to perform at the Oscars 2022, which will be broadcast live from Compton tennis courts. Multiple sources connected to the ceremony told ‘Variety’ that the program’s organisers are going all out to land a legendary performance from best original song nominee Beyonce.

While the superstar made nary an awards campaign stop over the past months in support of her track ‘Be Alive’, co-written with artist Dixson for the film ‘King Richard'”, Beyonce’s camp has been in deep talks with producers to mount a satellite performance of the song — one that would possibly open the show, and broadcast live from tennis courts in Compton, California.

According to ‘Variety’, the concept began solidifying last Monday, three individuals with knowledge of the talks said. The location, of course, is where sports legends Venus and Serena practiced relentless drills in their youth under the watchful eye of their father, Richard.

One possible scenario would have Will Smith, who plays the titular character in the film, appear onsite with Beyonce and then presumably head north to Hollywood in time to take his seat for the announcement of the best actor category, sources added.

An Academy spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment. A Beyonce spokesperson couldn’t immediately be reached for comment. The ‘Naughty Girl’ singer is notoriously secretive, often requiring the most high-level collaborators to sign binding nondisclosure agreements for the chance to work with her.

Numerous insiders close to the industry and to the city government said that it’s possible Beyonce would abandon the concept entirely if any of her plans were to be revealed. While there are numerous tennis courts in the City of Compton, located in metro Los Angeles, the Lueders Park courts were officially rebranded as the Venus and Serena Williams Court of Champion in 2016. The Compton City Manager’s office did not return multiple calls for comment on the matter.

Any pop culture watcher or Beyhive member would recognise a move like this as trademark Beyonce, a performance that could utilise the popularity of the Oscars to shine a light on Compton, and celebrate two native daughters who conquered their sport and the world. Over the years, the Academy has shown their affection for Beyonce as a performer.

In 2005, the singer performed numerous tracks in the best song category on the live broadcast, including ‘Learn to Be Lonely’ from the feature remake of ‘The Phantom of the Opera’. She sang alongside Jennifer Hudson and Anika Noni Rose in 2007 with a medley from ‘Dreamgirls’, and also in 2009 to accompany host Hugh Jackman in a montage celebrating movie musicals.
