No Performances by Best Song Nominees on the Oscarcast

Feb 16, 2010  •  Post A Comment

The producers of this year’s Academy Awards broadcast, Adam Shankman and Bill Mechanic, have reportedly decided not to ask the best song nominees to perform their songs during the show, reports Deadline.com.

Instead of a live song performance, the nominated music will be interspersed with footage from the associated films.

In addition to that change, Shankman has decided to add variety to the telecast in the form of dancers from the TV show "So You Think You Can Dance."

  1. WTF?! So You Think You Can Dance on the Oscars?! Are you guys high?

  2. Great – next viewers will be asked to phone in or text their votes for the awards.
    Next up – “Best Picture, as chosen by Simon, Randy, Kara and Ellen!”

  3. That is idiotic. Not everyone has heard the songs so having them performed is a highlight.

  4. That’s good. It’s the old format that they had.
    Just playing a :10 segment during the announcement of the nominee would be enough

  5. So, in order to save time during the broadcast and quicken the pace, they’re going to eliminate the song performances… and replace it with dancing. How exactly does that make the broadcast shorter? Do Shankman and Mechanic have special watches or something?

  6. Dude! Do something with spamming inside the comments, please! Most of those responses are fake :/ .
