The song is performed by Auli‘i Cravalho. Lin-Manuel Miranda is the only real challenger for Best Song up against La La Land’s City of Stars. Although the nominations haven’t been revealed yet, so far this is how it’s been shaking down. If the song wins, Miranda will be an EGOT recipient, winning an Emmy, a Grammy, a Tony and an Oscar — for him it will have been all in the same year. For me, and for many others, Miranda’s Hamilton will be the beautiful last gasp of the Obama era.
