Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Zendaya and Keala Settle put their performing skills to the ultimate test on Sunday night when they performed one of the musical numbers from The Greatest Showman live during Fox’s telecast of A Christmas Story Live! The four performed the original song “Come Alive” alongside about 150 dancers on the stages at the Warner Bros Studios in Burbank, CA. Check out the two-minute live spot below!
The Greatest Showman hits theaters this Wednesday and tells the story of the life of P.T. Barnum (Jackman) and his journey to creating the world-famous circus. All of the original music was written by Academy Award-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land) and also stars Michelle Williams and Rebecca Ferguson.
The movie is already receiving rave reviews and recently scored three Golden Globe nominations for Best Best Motion Picture for Musical or Comedy, Best Performance by an Actor in a Musical or Comedy for Hugh Jackman as well as Best Original Song for the film’s big anthem “This Is Me”.
Are you planning on seeing The Greatest Showman?
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
