Although the singer is on the nominations list, she will not be performing at the event! What are the reasons?

As Us Weekly writes in this article, Lady Gaga will not be performing at the 2023 Oscars, although she is on the nominations list for her Top Gun: Maverick’s song, Hold My Hand. The event’s producer publicly announced that Gaga will not be performing at the event as she is too busy shooting the Joker sequel, Folie à Deux.

During a recent press conference, Glenn Weiss, the Oscars producer, mentioned that they know ”what it takes to make a movie” so they chose not to have Gaga perform on March 12. “We have great relationships with Lady Gaga and her camp [but] she’s in the middle of shooting a movie right now, and here we are honoring the movie industry and what it takes to make a movie,” the producer said. “After a bunch of back and forth, it didn’t feel like she can get a performance to the caliber that we’re used to with her, that she’s used to and all that stuff.” Weiss continued.

The singer received a nomination for her Top Gun: Maverick song Hold My Hand. Earlier this year, Gaga, 36, opened up about the nomination in an Instagram post. “Thank you so much to the Academy for nominating my song ‘Hold My Hand’ for an Oscar this year! Writing this song for the film Top Gun: Maverick was a deep and powerful experience that I will never forget. So grateful for the magic of music and cinema. Love you my co-writer @bloodpop I’m on set filming now big love to little monsters!” she wrote.

In 2019, Lady Gaga’s Shallow from A Star Is Born won the best song of the year award at the Oscars.

“I’ve worked hard for a long time, and it’s not about, you know…it’s not about winning. But what it’s about is not giving up. If you have a dream, fight for it. There’s a discipline for passion. And it’s not about how many times you get rejected or you fall down or you’re beaten up. It’s about how many times you stand up and are brave and you keep on going. Thank you!” the singer said during her acceptance speech.
