LOS ANGELES — Rihanna followed-up her soaring Super Bowl halftime show with a performance at the Super Bowl of movies — the Oscars.

The music superstar sang “Lift Me Up” from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” at the ceremony, which began at 8 p.m. ET at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

“Lift Me Up,” with music by Tems, Rihanna, Ryan Coogler and Ludwig Gransson and lyric by Tems and Ryan Coogler, is nominated for original song. It is Rihanna’s first Oscar nomination.

“RRR” won best original song for “Naatu Naatu.”

Before Rihanna’s performance, “Black Panther” actress Danai Gurira remembered late star Chadwick Boseman, saying “Thank you, King.”

Rihanna revealed she was pregnant with her second child with A$AP Rocky while performing during the Apple Music Super Bowl halftime show in February.

Last weekend, she shared a hilarious photo of her son, joking about his reaction to her upcoming Oscars performance.

“My son when he found out his sibling is going to the Oscars and not him,” she posted along with a photo of the child looking upset.
