Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper will perform the Oscar-nominated song “Shallow” from “A Star is Born,” the Academy announced in a tweet Friday.

They join the previously announced performers, including Jennifer Hudson singing “I’ll Fight” from “RBG,” a “surprise special guest” singing “The Place Where Lost Things Go” from “Mary Poppins Returns” and Gillian Welch and David Rawlings performing “When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings,” as originally sung by Tim Blake Nelson in “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.”

That leaves only Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s “All the Stars” from “Black Panther.” It’s expected that all five nominees will ultimately perform.

Representatives for the Academy, Gaga, Lamar and Nelson did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Netflix had no comment.

Last week, Variety reported that producers and Academy executives had decided only “Shallow” from “A Star is Born” and “All the Stars” from “Black Panther” would be performed on the Oscars broadcast.

The Academy has been committed to shortening the Oscars broadcast to three hours, including moving some of the awards announcements to the commercial breaks.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, who stars in “Mary Poppins Returns,” initially expressed his dismay last week after the news of the snubbed song performances broke.

“The 1st time I stayed up to watch the Oscars, it was because I LOVED ‘The Little Mermaid’ & they were going to sing songs from the movie I loved on The Oscars,” Miranda wrote in a tweet. “If true, and Poppins’ song won’t be performed, truly disappointing. Hostless AND music-less? To quote Kendrick: Damn.”

The Oscars air on Feb. 24 on ABC. See the Academy’s tweets below:
