Miranda performed an original rap for the song before Cravalho took the stage to sing the lyrics to "How Far I'll Go" in a gorgeous red dress. The 16-year-old young starlet provided the voice of the lead character and contributed her vocal talents to the soundtrack as well.

Other nominees in the song's category include "Can't Stop the Feeling" from Trolls, "Audition" and "City of Stars" from La La Land, and "The Empty Chair" from Jim: The James Foley Story.
