Here are the 89th Academy Awards performers:

Justin Timberlake, John Legend, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Auli'i Cravalho and Sting. Each artist will be performing a song from the Best Original Song category.

Sting will perform "The Empty Chair" from Jim: The James Foley Story, an HBO documentay about an American journalist killed by ISIS in 2014. The song is co-written by J. Ralph. You can have a listen by CLICKING HERE.

Lin-Manuel Miranda will perform a duet with Moana's Auli'i Cravalho. The song is Miranda's "How Far I'll Go" from the Disney animated movie. If he wins the Oscar, he'll be lifted up to EGOT status; a rare achievement when an artist wins an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. You can hear the song by CLICKING HERE.

John Legend will give us a double performance, both from La La Land. "City of Stars" and "Audition (The Fools Who Dream)" were originally performed by Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, but will be performed on Oscar night by Legend who had a smaller role in the film playing a jazz musician. You can hear the originals by CLICKING HERE, and HERE.
 
And finally, Justin Timberlake will perform "Can't Stop the Feeling" from the DreamWorks animated movie Trolls. Timberlake stars in the picture and served as an executive producer for the film's music. You can hear his number one hit song by CLICKING HERE.

We’re thrilled to welcome these world-class artists to the Oscars. These performances will not only celebrate the five extraordinary nominated original songs, but also the integral part music plays in movies.
— Oscar producers Michael De Luca & Jennifer Todd
