The Oscars are trumpeting the “first live performance of ‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno’” from Encanto for their show on March 27.
“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” topped the Billboard Hot 100 for five consecutive weeks, an astonishing showing for a multi-character theatrical piece. The song is performed by Carolina Gaitán, Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero, Stephanie Beatriz and the cast of Encanto on the Encanto soundtrack, which is currently in its ninth nonconsecutive week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
Another of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s songs from Encanto, “Dos Oruguitas,” is competing for best original song at the Oscars.
The Academy hasn’t officially announced that all five best original song nominees will be performed on the show, but that is widely expected. If they are, on top of the performance of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” the show will have a strong music focus.
We don't talk about Bruno…except at this year's #Oscars!
