Erivo, also an Oscar nominee for her star turn as Harriet Tubman in the biopic Harriet, will sing the film's anthemic “Stand Up,” which the stage and screen star co-wrote with Joshuah Brian Campbell.

Wicked Tony winner Menzel, who made headlines with her last Oscars performance thanks to a certain name flub, will perform “Into The Unknown” from Frozen 2, featuring music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Tony winner Robert Lopez.

The Lion King, Aida, and Billy Elliot composer John will perform “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” from the motion picture about his life, Rocketman. The song was penned by John and his longtime collaborator, Bernie Taupin. The pair recently earned a Golden Globe for the tune.
