Grammy winner and La La Land star John Legend will take the stage to sing both "Audition (The Fools Who Dream)" and "City of Stars," which Stone and Gosling perform in their musical film. Both tracks are nominated for Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Song. E! News learned earlier this month that Stone and Gosling, who are both nominated for their acting performances, would not perform the songs at the Oscars.

Legend is not nominated for an Oscar this year. He and Common won Best Original Song in 2015, for their track "Glory" from Selma.

He is expected to attend the 2017 Oscars with wife and model Chrissy Teigen.

Grammy winner Sting will perform "The Empty Chair" from Jim: The James Foley Story. The singer co-wrote the song, which is nominated for an Oscar, with three-time Oscar nominee J. Ralph.

If the song wins the Oscar, Miranda will achieve EGOT status. He has won Tonys for Hamilton and his musical In the Heights, earned two Grammys for both shows and was awarded an Emmy in 2014 for co-writing a song for the Tony Awards.
