The Oscars opened on an unconventional note with a performance from one of the biggest stars on the planet: Beyonce.

Venus and Serena Williams were the first presenters on the stage, introducing the 40-year-old singer’s performance, from the same Compton tennis court where they learned the game they would come to dominate.

Beyonce delivered a powerful performance of Be Alive from Best Picture nominee King Richard, which she co-wrote with Dixson. 

The singer’s daughter, 10-year-old Blue Ivy, was also spotted with her mother, wearing sunglasses and kneeling front and center in front of Beyonce for part of the performance.

During the performance she gave a shout-out to the City of Compton, where the Williams sisters grew up.

The singer’s performance was the first of four performances on Oscar Sunday, with Billie Eilish performing her title song from the James Bond film No Time to Die, Reba McEntire performing Somehow You Do from Four Good Days and Sebastian Yatra performing Dos Oruguitas from Encanto.

The fifth nominee, Van Morrison, was unable to perform Down to Joy from Belfast, due to his touring schedule.

It was first reported last week that The Academy was in talks with Beyonce to perform, with Deadline reporting that she would only perform with a pre-taped performance if the other performers were given the option to do so.

The singer reportedly didn’t want, ‘special treatment’ for performing, though it’s unclear how many of the other performers will be pre-taped and which will be live.

Last year’s Oscars, which took place at both the Dolby Theater and at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, featured all of the Best Original Song performances pre-taped.

The pre-taped performance comes on the heels of the controversial choice to cut eight awards from the live telecast.

The eight categories – Documentary Short, Film Editing, Makeup and Hairstyling, Production Design, Animated Short, Live Action Short, Sound and Score – were announced to be presented an hour before the live telecast.

Those segments were filmed and then edited seamlessly into the live telecast, in an effort to keep the show under three hours in length.
