Adam Levine to Perform Best Song Nominee ‘Lost Stars’ at the Oscars
Adam Levine is going to the Oscars!
Levine will perform Best Original Song nominee “Lost Stars” at the 87th Academy Awards next month, making this the second year in a row where a coach on The Voice performs at the big ceremony, following last year’s “Happy” performance by Pharrell Williams.
“Lost Stars” comes from Levine’s big-screen debut in Begin Again, a romantic drama that co-starred current Oscar nominees Mark Ruffalo (Best Supporting Actor in Foxcatcher) and Keira Knightley (Best Supporting Actress in The Imitation Game). The song is written by Danielle Brisebois and Gregg Alexander, the latter of whom was the frontman for 90s one-hit wonder band New Radicals, whose “You Only Get What You Give” is still a damn fine song, let’s be real.
Of course, “Lost Stars” is a damn good song too, so maybe Alexander has a second wind in him for his pop-rock career. Doubly so if the song wins, although it’ll face stiff competition from “Everything Is Awesome” from The LEGO Movie, “Glory” from Selma, “Grateful” from Beyond the Lights and Glen Campbell’s “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from the documentary Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me.

The 87th Academy Awards will air February 22 live on ABC.
