H.E.R., who won an Oscar last year for co-writing “Fight for You” from Judas and the Black Messiah, will present on the 2022 Oscars. DJ Khaled was also added as an Oscar presenter on Monday (March 21). The 94th Oscars will be held on Sunday, March 27, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
Both H.E.R. and Khaled are nominated at the 2022 Grammys, which will be held on Sunday, April 3, just one week after the Oscars. H.E.R. is nominated in eight categories, including album of the year for Back of My Mind and song of the year for “Fight for You” (the same song that brought her and co-writers D’Mile and Tiara Thomas an Oscar last year). Khaled is nominated for album of the year as a featured artist on H.E.R.’s album.
Stephanie Beatriz, who voiced Mirabel Madrigal, the main character in the Disney animated film Encanto, will also present. Beatriz is featured on five songs on the Encanto soundtrack, which has topped the Billboard 200 for nine weeks, longer than any other album so far this year. Beatriz will also perform on the show. She is one of the artists on “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” a former No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. The Oscars announced last week that that pop-culture phenomenon will be performed on the show.
