Former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne whipped out the “Everything Everywhere All At Once” hot dog fingers at the Oscars tonight to perform “This Is a Life” with Son Lux and the film’s Stephanie Hsu — check out the full performance below.

Byrne co-wrote the song with Son Lux’s Ryan Lott and Mitski, who did not appear on the telecast. Instead, Hsu — who was nominated for her performance(s) as Joy Wang and Jobu Tupaki in the film — sang with Byrne. (Plus, Raccoonie made an on-screen cameo.)

In the end, though, “This Is a Life” did not win the Oscar for best original song — that honor when to “Naatu Naatu” by M.M. Keeravaani and Chandrabose from the film “RRR.”

Check out the performance below.
