Normally, we as viewers tune into the Oscars with the expectation that the entire night will be about the best red carpet looks and honoring Hollywood’s elite. But there’s always musical talent in the house that shouldn’t be overlooked. This year, there are five songs nominated for Oscars that are all being performed live at different points throughout the ceremony. In case you’re still wondering what those songs are (or if you’re looking to add them to your viewing party playlist, stat), here’s a quick rundown of all the songs nominated for Oscars in 2018:

1. “Mighty River,” Mudbound

Mighty River” is performed by Mary J. Blige, who is also nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the film.

2. “Mystery of Love,” Call Me by Your Name

If Call Me by Your Name got you teary-eyed, so will Sufjan Stevens’ beautiful song written for the film. Stevens contributed three songs to the film’s soundtrack, though “Mystery of Love” is, of course, the only one nominated for an award tonight.

3. “Remember Me,” Coco

You can never really go wrong with a slow jam sung by Miguel. “Remember Me” was featured in the animated film Coco, a movie about a young boy who ends up in the Land of the Dead after his Día de los Muertos night goes wrong.

4. “Stand Up for Something,” Marshall

Written by rapper Common and sung by Andra Day, “Stand Up for Something” was featured in the film Marshall, which also stars our superhero bae Chadwick Boseman. The song earned Common his second Oscar nomination.

5. “This Is Me,” The Greatest Showman 

This Is Me” is an anthem that you absolutely have to listen to, even if you haven’t seen The Greatest Showman. The song is performed by the film’s cast, and it’s epic enough to make you want to dance to it for hours on end.
