Dua Lipa Will Headline Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Oscars Pre-Party


With the Oscars just a month away, Sir Elton John is getting ready to party with a little help from his friends, and that includes Dua Lipa and Neil Patrick Harris…



Last Monday, the Elton John AIDS Foundation dropped a detailed announcement for their annual Academy Awards viewing party, which will take place on April 25, and will be hosted by actor Neil Patrick Harris.



Meanwhile, this first-ever virtual pre-party – try saying that five times fast – will also feature a special ‘stripped back’ performance by none other than Dua Lipa!



The pre-party will take place one hour before the actual Oscars begin and are available to watch via Cisco Webex, with other soon-to-be-announced guests joining the line-up…any guesses?



In a statement, John shared, ‘This year, we are bringing our Oscar Party into people’s homes for the first time virtually for an unforgettable evening with David [Furnish], myself, our dear friend Neil Patrick Harris and the incredible Dua Lipa plus many fabulous surprise names’.



‘Now more than ever, we need to ensure that one pandemic does not override another, and we cannot forget the 38 million people living with HIV globally who need our care, love and support so we hope everyone joins us for this special one of a kind Oscar Pre-Party.’



Lipa herself even shared her excitement for the party, ‘It’s such an honour to be a part of one of the most iconic Oscar parties and I’m really proud to support the Elton John AIDS Foundation to help tackle the stigma that exists around HIV as we need to build a kinder and more accepting world together’.
