No host? No problem. Queen, Lady Gaga bring Grammys vibe to Oscars
Updated : February 21, 2019 07:31 AM IST
With rock band, Queen, pop superstar Lady Gaga and two musicals in the race for best picture, the highest honours in the movie industry will have an unusually strong music vibe as the Oscars seek to regain television audiences.
British band Queen, featuring Adam Lambert as lead vocalist, will open the February 24 show with a live performance celebrating the box-office success of best picture nominee “Bohemian Rhapsody,” a representative of the band told Reuters.
Details have been scant about the first Academy Awards ceremony in 30 years to go ahead without a host, bringing a curiosity factor to the last and biggest awards show of the season.
