The Oscars are breaking another tradition this year by excluding the performances of the Oscar nominated songs from the awards show. Spokeswoman for the Academy Leslie Unger stated, “the artists behind the year’s five nominated songs will not perform during the Oscar telecast.”

This year instead of performances they are going to showcase the songs with clips from the films that featured them.

The songs up for original song are:

“Almost There” – Randy Newman (The Princess and the Frog)
“Down in New Orleans” – Randy Newman (The Princess and the Frog)
“+” – Reinhardt Wagner and Frank Thomas (Paris 36)
“Take It All” – Maury Yeston (Nine)
“The Weary Kind (Theme from Crazy Heart)” – Ryan Bingham and T Bone Burnett (Crazy Heart)

    They’re probably doing this to shorten the show so it doesn’t drag on so long
