Oscars 2017: Will Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling Sing 'La La Land' Songs On Stage? [VIDEO]
La La Land fans may be sad to learn that Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling probably won't be performing their respective songs at the Oscars.
Gosling, who sings "City of Stars", and Stone, who sings "Audition (The Fools Who Dream") in La La Land, aren't expected to perform their Oscar nominated songs. An E! News report is claiming that neither will be taking the Oscar stage, though the Academy has not officially commented on this yet.
However, the songs might still be performed. Vanity Fair reports that Stone and Gosling's La La Land co-star John Legend is expected to sing "City of Stars". There's no word yet on who might perform "Audition".
Either way, it's hard to imagine the most nominated film of the evening, an original musical at that, won't have its two biggest songs performed.
Other songs nominated in the Best Original Song category include "Can't Stop the Feeling!" from Trolls, "The Empty Chair" from Jim: The James Foley Story and "How Far I'll Go" from Moana.
"Can't Stop the Feeling!" has a great chance of being performed on Oscar night considering it was the most downloaded song of 2016 and it's sung by Justin Timberlake. Asked if the song would be performed at the Oscars, he said, "Allegedly. Yes. I guess the answer is yes, but I don't want to say too much. It's all very tight-lipped. We'll figure out a fun way to have the song in the show."
Vanity Fair also reports that Auli'i Cravalho, the 16-year-old girl who voices the titular character in Moana, might be singing "How Far I'll Go" on stage, which was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda. As for "The Empty Chair", the song does have the star power of Sting, but it's not known if it will be performed.
The 2017 Academy Awards will air live from coast to coast Sunday, Feb. 26 at 8:30 p.m. ET / 5:30 p.m. PT on ABC, with host Jimmy Kimmel.
