We Don’t Talk about Bruno, but let’s talk about an exciting “Encanto” performance coming to the Oscars!

Disney’s Encanto has yet to lose its popularity among fans of all ages, and now, one of the film’s most beloved songs will be part of the 94th Academy Awards ceremony on March 27.

A new promo for the 94th Academy Awards in Los Angeles live on ABC revealed that the broadcast of the Oscars will feature a performance of the hit song “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” from Disney’s Encanto.

The song was an almost immediate sensation with fans of the film, many of which could sing the song verbatim after only hearing it a few times. Written by Lin Manuel Miranda, the song is currently at the #2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart after falling from its #1 spot where it remained for 5 weeks. It’s the only song from an animated or live-action Disney film to ever get to the #1 spot for multiple weeks.

In the film, the song is performed by Carolina Gaitan, Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero, Stephanie Beatriz and the cast of Encanto. Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote most of the songs for the hit animated feature film, is nominated for Best Original Song, but not for Bruno’s ballad.

Rather, Miranda is nominated for the song, “Dos Orugitas,” which tells the story of Abeula Madrigal and the tragedy she experienced with the death of her husband when she was very young. The “Bruno”song didn’t receive an Oscar nomination because it wasn’t submitted for consideration by Disney. Truth be told, no one realized “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” would ever be such a hit, let alone go viral, including Lin-Manuel Miranda.

If Miranda wins an Oscar for “Dos Orugitas,” he will be the youngest person to win an Academy Award in that category.

If you’re not a fan of the Oscars, we won’t judge. But if you’re an Encanto fan–and especially if you love the Bruno ballad and know exactly which part of the song is your favorite–tune in on Sunday night, March 27 for the 94th Academy Awards on ABC to see the performance, which will be the first-ever live performance of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.”

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
