Byrne, Son Lux and Mitski contributed the song ‘This Is A Life’ to the soundtrack of Everything Everywhere All At Once, which is nominated for Best Original Song. As is tradition at the Oscars, each nominee in the category is performed at the ceremony.
Mitski did not join Byrne and Son Lux for the performance, with actor Stephanie Hsu – who played Joy Wang in the film and was also nominated for Best Supporting Actress – taking over her vocal duties. Byrne also sang in the performance, doing so while wearing the infamous hot dog fingers from the film on his hands. Watch footage of the performance below.
