Viewers were treated to a unique opening show at the 94th Academy Awards. Instead of a boring monologue, Beyoncé wowed the audience with a vibrant performance. She paid homage to Venus and Serena Williams with her Oscar-nominated song “Be Alive” from the biopic King Richard.
Compton, California hosted Beyoncé’s Oscars performance.
Beyoncé was in Compton, California, the Williams sisters’ hometown, while celebrities sat at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. The show was presented by King Richard executive producers Venus and Serena.
Saniyya Sidney and Demi Singleton, who played the legendary sisters in the film, then escorted Beyoncé to the very tennis court where they grew up in Compton, California. It got off to a dramatic start, as befits the film industry’s biggest night.
The TV screens were flooded with tennis ball green. Beyoncé, her dancers, musicians and daughter Blue Ivy Carter all wore brightly colored costumes. Some of her hairstyles are said to be inspired by the Williams sisters’ braids and beads from the 1990s, according to Vogue.
Beyoncé strutted through the set like a seasoned pro, adorned with sequins, feathers and jewels in true Divа style. Close-ups of the first-time Oscar nominees were featured frequently, emphasizing her smoldering gaze and neon pink eye makeup.
Will Smith was happy when Beyoncé called
Chris Rock’s GI Joe: Retаliаtion is a 2022 Academy Award nominee. Will Smith was offended by Jane’s joke, Here’s Why
Richard Williams raises his two daughters to be superstar tennis players in the movie King Richard. Beyoncé contacted Will Smith, who plays Williams, after seeing the film because she was moved by the story.
Part ballad, part war cry, “Be Alive” hits the spot.
Linking to “Be Alive,” a track tailor-made for an emotional, Oscar-nominated film, Will Smith said, “The marriage of a film and a song is a kind of magic that’s unparalleled in entertainment.”
Beyoncé wrote the inspirational song, with lyrics emphasizing triumph and despair, written specifically for the King Richard credits.
“Look how hard we fought to stay alive / So if we win we will be proud / Do you have any idea how much we cried?” / What a fight it was for us.”
Queen Bey returns to the Oscars stage
The Bey-hive hasn’t seen their queen perform live on Hollywood’s biggest stage in quite some time. Beyoncé’s last appearance at the Academy Awards was in 2009 when she appeared alongside Hugh Jackman to honor film scores. Her return was warmly received by fans.
Her electrifying start set the tone for an Oscar show second to none. Beyoncé reigned as Queen of the Night, though she lost to Billie Eilish and Finn for “No Time to Die.” Will she perform at the Grammys this year?
