The Academy has announced the musical artists performing at the Oscars this Sunday night and it is causing people to get very emotional.

This is not a drill.
“Remember Me” is nominated for Best Original Song. Other nominees and performers include Mary J. Blige singing “Mighty River” from the film “Mudbound;” Sufjan Stevens will sing “Mystery of Love” from “Call Me By Your Name;” Keala Settle is singing “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman,” and Common and Andra Day are performing “Stand Up for Something” from “Marshall.”
Gael García Bernal, Natalia LaFourcade, and Miguel will take the stage and perform “Remember Me” from “Coco” and that’s kind of major.
“We’re excited to have these talented artists showcase the powerful contribution music makes to filmmaking,” show producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd said in a press statement. “It’s a privilege to welcome them to the 90th Oscars stage.”
Do you remember “Remember Me”? Here’s the version you can look forward to.
This bilingual version will surely make Latinxs delight with joy during the live performance. But we’re just wondering how Bernal will join in on this rendition.
As you recall, Bernal plays Hector, a lonely street musician, desperate to return to the living to see his family. Here’s the version he sang in the movie.
If he sings that lullaby version we might just die.
People on Twitter are already losing it with the Oscar announcement.

The film’s director, Lee Unkrich, is pretty excited to have Bernal, Miguel, and LaFourcade represent the movie, which is also nominated for Best Animated Film.
Some are wondering if “Remember Me” will be played during the “In Memoriam” segment of the show.

That would make perfect sense, especially because it’s honoring those that passed away this year.
Just the thought of seeing Bernal at the Oscars is already too much for some people to take.

Let’s see how many times the camera operators show Bernal on camera.
People are already expecting their bodies to give out.
