Beyoncé wore David Koma Spring-Summer 2022 while Performing @ 2022 Oscars In Compton
Beyoncé Knowles opened the 2022 Oscars last night with a performance of her Oscar-nominated King Richard song “Be Alive.”
Venus and Serena introduced the performance which had afeatured an appearance from Beyoncé’s 10 year old daughter Blue Ivy. Beyonce and dancers performed at the Compton tennis courts, where Venus and Serena Williams practiced as children.
The beautiful visuals and performance started with a shot of young women making their way to the court — two with racquets and one on horseback, a nod to the Compton Cowboys and the legacy of Black cowboy culture.
Beyonce and her backup singers and musicians were dressed in lime green ahead-to-toe vibrant tennis ball green; even the violins and music stands were color-coordinated.
Many of the performers on the tennis court performance wore braids styled with beads, styles which often received criticism when the Williams sisters wore them in their early tennis careers.
“Be Alive” was nominated for Best Original Song and played during the end credits of King Richard, the story of Richard Williams and his journey of raising two of the world’s greatest athletes.
Be Alive Beyoncé’s first Oscar nomination, although Billie Eilish ultimately won the Oscar for her song “No Time to Die.”
