In case you’re curious, yes, this will be Adam Samberg’s first time rapping on stage at the Oscars.
“Everything is Awesome,” co-produced by Devo mastermind and frequent film composer Mark Mothersbaugh, is up for the best original song Oscar. Shawn Patterson, who has composed music for everything from The Ren & Stimpy Show to Robot Chicken, is up for the Oscar as the song’s primary writer.
This means all the performers of this year’s Oscar-nominated songs will sing at the Feb. 22 ceremony, with the exception of Glen Campbell. The ailing country singer’s tune will be delivered by Tim McGraw at the show. But Adam Levine will perform “Lost Stars” from Begin Again, Rita Ora will sing the Diane Warren-penned “Grateful” from Beyond the Lights and John Legend and Common will perform the Golden Globe-winning “Glory” from Selma.
