Lift Me Up will be performed by Rihanna at the Oscars

At the Super Bowl, Rihanna

Rejoice, Rihanna Navy: We won't see the Barbadian singer only once, at the Super Bowl halftime show.

Lift Me Up will be performed by the music icon during the Oscars, the biggest night in Hollywood.

The song, which Tems, Ryan Coogler, and Ludwig Göransson wrote, was included on the soundtrack for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

This is Rihanna's first Oscar nomination, for best original song.

Jimmy Kimmel will serve as host of the 95th Academy Awards presentation, which will be broadcast on March 12.

Rihanna dazzled Super Bowl viewers earlier this month with a soaring, solo half-time performance in which she made the public announcement of her second pregnancy with her partner, rapper A$AP Rocky.

Fans of Rihanna, many of whom hadn't seen her perform since she appeared on the Grammys stage in 2018 to perform "Wild Thoughts" with DJ Khaled, eagerly anticipated the 13-minute performance.

Rihanna has recently stepped away from the music industry to concentrate on her business endeavors, such as her lingerie line Savage X Fenty and makeup line Fenty Beauty.

Since the release of her most recent album, ANTI, in 2016, Lift Me Up is Rihanna's first solo song.

Speaking about her seven-year hiatus from music, Rihanna claimed she is now at a place where she wants to engage in creative exploration.

"I feel open to exploring, learning about, and producing novel, distinctive, off-kilter, and weird things. I want to have fun with music, which might never make sense to my fans, Rihanna said prior to her Super Bowl performance.

Rihanna will join artists like Beyonce and Lady Gaga, who have both dazzled as musical guests on the Academy Award stage in recent years, by giving a performance at the Oscars.

Lift Me Up, a song she wrote, will compete for the award for best original song against Lady Gaga's Hold My Hand from Top Gun: Maverick, for which she is receiving her fourth nomination overall.

The following songs are up for the award for best original song: Diane Warren's Applause from the movie Tell It Like a Woman; Ryan Lott, Mitski, and David Byrne's This Is A Life from the movie Everything Everywhere All At Once; and M M Keeravaani and Chandrabose's Naatu Naatu from the Indian action movie RRR.

Rihanna has won the Grammy Award nine times. Eight of her albums have achieved multi-platinum status, and 14 of her singles have peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
