Various new outlets reported that the Academy Awards have officially announced who will perform the Oscar-nominated Best Original Songs. It is a powerhouse list. Lin-Manuel Miranda and Auli’i Cravalho will perform “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana. Justin Timberlake will perform his infectious “Can’t Stop the Feeling” from the animated Trolls. Sting will perform his song “The Empty Chair” from Jim: The James Foley Story. John Legend will be performing both nominated songs from La La Land, “City of Stars” (sung by Ryan Gosling in the movie) and “Audition (The Fools Who Dream)” (sung by Emma Stone). It is a lot of musical star power for the Academy Awards. It should make for some exciting performances.
