Superstar Rihanna will perform her Oscar-nominated song Lift Me Up from "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" at the 95th Academy Awards ceremony. The executive producers and showrunners Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner made the annoucement, reported Variety.

Lift Me Up is composed by Tems, Rihanna, Ryan Coogler and Ludwig Goransson while Tems and Ryan Coogler penned the lyrics of the song.

Rihanna, who has not released a new album since 2016's Anti, headlined the Super Bowl halftime show earlier this month. Her performance got somehow overshadowed by the fact that she is expecting a second child. Although Rihanna made no reference to it during the show, she was visibly pregnant and reps confirmed the news to Variety shortly after the performance.

While many actors and celebrities have presented or accepted awards at the Oscars while pregnant, Catherine Zeta-Jones is the only other name in recent memory to perform a musical number at the Academy Awards while pregnant, reported Variety.

Jones was eight months pregnant when she performed I Move On from Chicago at the 2003 Oscars with Queen Latifah. Jones won the Oscar for best supporting actress that year, and she gave birth to her daughter Carys just a few weeks later.

The 95th Oscars will be held on Sunday, March 12 at the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood.
