Greatest Showman's Keala Settle Talks Performing at Oscars!

Keala Settle presents an award on stage at the 2018 International Cinematographers Guild Publicists Awards on Friday (March 2) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The star of The Greatest Showman is set to perform her signature song “This Is Me” at the Oscars this weekend and she opened up to W Magazine about the opportunity.

“I think it’s really easy to get wrapped up in the Hollywood part of the Oscars, and for me this week is a reminder of what it actually means to perform at the Oscars and where the story came from in the first place,” Keala said. “First of all, I can’t believe I’m doing it! At all. Totally didn’t think I was going to be, so that was a shocker, a really good shocker.”

“Even if I never do anything again, it’s one of those moments that you never think could happen to you so you don’t even really dream about it or think about it. Then, when it does become a reality, you start to take in the beauty of everything that is happening around it,” she added. “The people that are involved, and how much the composers and the lyricists are grateful to you and how much you are grateful to them for creating such a song because they’re the ones that are nominated for it. I’m just a vehicle that was able to sing it. There’s a lot of gratitude that goes around this week, especially when it comes to Justin [Paul] and Benj [Pasek] and everyone else involved.”
