Keala Settle took the stage to perform the song "This Is Me" from The Greatest Showman at the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday night. Written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the song was also used in promotions for the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Settle appeared under a single spotlight wearing a shimmering blue dress. From the center of the stage, Settle sang with drum sets on both sides of her. A group of dancers appeared and approached the crowd. Toward the end of the performance, Settle appeared to be crying and her voiced shook as she sang her lyrics.
"And I'm marching on to the beat I drum," she sang. "I'm not scared to be seen, I make no apologies, this is me."
Settle stars in The Greatest Showman as the singing bearded lady. The Hawaii-born Settle is also a recording artist and Tony-nominated singer.
The Greatest Showman celebrates the birth of show business and tells the story of P.T. Barnum, a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation. The film stars Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams and Zac Efron.
