LOS ANGELES -- Rihanna will perform at the 2023 Oscars.

The award-winning singer will perform "Lift Me Up," her Oscar-nominated song from "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever," during the star-studded awards show, the 95th Oscars' executive producers and showrunners Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner announced Thursday.

"Lift Me Up," the lead single off the "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" original soundtrack, was written by Tems, Rihanna, Ryan Coogler and Ludwig Göransson as a tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who died in August 2020 after a years-long battle with colon cancer.

Rihanna received her first Oscar nomination for the song in January. She is nominated in the best original song category.
