Get ready for some Oscar-nominated music. When 2018's best and brightest films are honored on Feb. 24, superstars will be taking the stage to perform songs from the movies.

Queen announced on Monday they would be performing with Adam Lambert. The band was the subject of the 2018 movie Bohemian Rhapsody, which is one of the most popular films to be nominated this year. While not up for Best Original Song, the film has five nominations including Best Picture.

Most years, the performances include all of the songs nominated for Best Original Song. Though there was some speculation that all of the songs might not be performed this year due to time constraints, the Academy has confirmed that all five songs will be performed during the ceremony. According to a Variety report, a 90-second excerpt will be performed from each song.
