Broadway favorite Lin-Manuel Miranda will perform his Oscar-nominated song "How Far I'll Go" on this year's Academy Awards broadcast.

Miranda will present the tune, from Disney's Moana, alongside the movie's leading lady, Auli'i Cravalho.

The telecast will also feature Broadway vet and music icon Sting singing "The Empty Chair" from the film Jim: The James Foley Story, Justin Timberlake performing "Can't Stop the Feeling!" from Trolls, and John Legend's take on the two nominated songs from La La Land, "Audition (The Fools Who Dream") and "City of Stars."

Dear Evan Hansen songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are the lyricists behind the La La Land tunes, with music by Justin Hurwitz.

The 2017 Academy Awards will be presented on February 26.
