The Academy Awards have confirmed that Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper will sing Shallow during this year’s Oscars. 

Contrary to rumors that this year’s Academy Awards will limit live Best Original Song-nominated performance, it looks like the night’s musical lineup will include performances of at least four Best Original Song nominees.

The Academy Awards confirmed the duet with a very simple tweet — “Cooper. Gaga. “Shallow.” #Oscars.” 

The duet is nominated alongside, “All The Stars” from Black Panther, “I’ll Fight” from RGB, “The Place Where Lost Things Go” from Mary Poppins Returns, and “When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings” from The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. Jennifer Hudson will sing “I’ll Fight,” while Gillian Welch and David Rawlings will sing “When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings.” The Mary Poppins Returns song will be performed by “a surprise special guest.”

The song, written by Gaga,  Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt, was first performed live by the co-stars during Gaga’s Las Vegas residency show, Enigma

The 91st Academy Awards will air February 25.
