By Alex Ungerman
The 2017 Oscars are about to sound amazing.
On Friday, the Academy revealed that John Legend, Justin Timberlake and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda will perform at the annual awards show, as well as Auli'i Cravalho -- who lent her voice as the title character for Disney's Moana. Sting will also be playing the show.
"We’re thrilled to welcome these world-class artists to the Oscars," show producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd said in a statement. "These performances will not only celebrate the five extraordinary nominated original songs, but also the integral part music plays in movies."
