“City of Stars” from La La Land won Best Song at the 89th Academy Awards!
“City of Stars” was composed by Justin Hurwitz with lyrics from Benj and Justin. It is sung twice throughout the film- Ryan Gosling’s character Sebastian first belts it out solo on a dusk-lit pier. It’s later performed as a duet on the second refrain, with Gosling and Emma Stone at a piano together, in love.
All of the best original song nominees were performed, with “La La Land” star John Legend singing “City of Stars” and “Audition”
Congratulations to all the incredible nominees!
