Black Panther Song "All the Stars" Won't Be Performed at Oscars

Kendrick and SZA

ET has reach out to Lamar and SZA's reps regarding the cancellation.

Unlike Robin Williams's riveting and memorable performance of the Award-nominated "Blame Canada" from South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut, no other artist will be called upon to perform "All the Stars".

But sources tell Variety that event organizers were unable to make the appearance work with Kendrick's schedule, blaming timing and logistics for his Academy Awards absence.

This combination photo shows musician Kendrick Lamar, left, and Solana Rowe, better known as SZA, who, along with Mark Spears and Anthony Tiffith, were nominated for an Oscar for best original song for "All the Stars", from the film "Black Panther". "King's Dead", also from the soundtrack to Black Panther, actually won Lamar a Grammy for best rap performance, and Ludwig Göransson's score won best score soundtrack for visual media. While Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has not yet confirmed who will host the function, it has revealed the list of performers at the awards fucntion.

Britain's Metro, Starling, ClearBank win cash to fund small businesses
ClearBank, through its partnership with business banking provider Tide, said it would "revolutionise" the SME market. Starling's successful application marks a turning point in Britain's banking industry.

Kendrick Lamar and SZA are holding firm in their refusal to perform at the Oscars, despite the Academy's most enticing efforts.

"A Star Is Born" actors Lady Gaga (L) and Bradley Cooper are set to perform their song "Shallow" at the Oscars. The song will also not be performed by another act, according to the trade.

Upon reaching out to the Academy for an explanation, they directed us to Deadline's reasoning which states that cutting the pair's song "absolutely has nothing to do with the running time of the telecast". The 37-year-old will perform her nominated track "I'll Fight" for the Best Original Song category from documentary "RGB".
