The 25-year-old Grammy Winner will be performing in the special event, which will take place in Los Angeles and is set to be broadcasted on April 25 at 7pm EST.
The foundation has continued to raise money for the AIDS epidemic, and since 1992 the Oscars have supported the cause, with Elton John as the host of the special one-hour party.
However due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the event has turned into a virtual countdown bash, celebrated and co-hosted by Hollywood star Neil Patrick Harris, Elton, and his husband, producer David Furnish.
The iconic singer took to Instagram Live to announce the main performer of the night, praising Dua Lipa for her incredible career, her success with her latest album Future Nostalgia and what he described as the best performance of the Grammy Awards.
He also revealed that there’s still more artists to be announced, as they intend to bring “the Oscar party to people’s homes for the first time.”
The exclusive party will be broadcasted at four different times in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Europe, hosting up to 100,000 guests on each livestream.
It was also reported that because of the pandemic, “there will be an extra half million deaths from AIDS this year in sub-Saharan Africa,” with Elton taking a moment to explain that “one pandemic does not invalidate another.”
Urging fans and viewers to celebrate for a good cause and help “the 38 million people in need of our care, love and support who live with HIV around the world.”
