Who will perform?
Host DeBose will perform during the awards show after smashing audiences in 2022 with the opening number “This Is Your Round of Applause.”

When DeBose sang a song about the performers nominated in this year’s acting categories, she quickly became a meme when she rapped the line, “Angela Bassett nailed it.”
Elsewhere, we’ll likely see performances from the shows nominated for Best Musical and Best Revival.
