Both Timberlake and Miranda wrote tracks for animated films. Timberlake will perform the hit single “Can’t Stop the Feeling” from Trolls, while Miranda will perform “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana. He’ll be joined onstage by Auli’i Cravalho, the actress who voiced the title character. If Miranda wins, he’ll become the youngest person ever to achieve EGOT.

Sting, meanwhile, will perform “The Empty Chair,” the song he co-wrote with J. Ralph for Jim: The James Foley Story, and Legend will perform both nominated songs from La La Land, “Audition (The Fools Who Dream)” and “City of Stars.” Although they were written by the film’s composer Justin Hurwitz, Legend appears in the film as a central musical character.

The 89th Annual Academy Awards airs Sunday, February 26th at 7:00 pm EST on ABC. Check out the full list of nominated songs below.
