For all music lovers, The Greatest Showman is definitely a film to watch, kicking off 2018 with spectacular visuals, costumes and a soundtrack which will delight any lover of a good old fashioned musical.
But the song stealing the show is without a doubt This Is Me. Written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the pair who were also responsible for the soundtrack to La La Land and Dear Evan Hansen, and performed by Keala Settle in the film and by Kesha, it has already won a Golden Globe award for Best Original Song. With the Academy Awards around the corner in March, it is a sure bet to receive a nomination, and possibly a win. The soundtrack was also Benj and Justin’s 3rd Top 10 album. And on Sunday the pair scored their first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with the soundtrack to The Greatest Showman. Here’s hoping the soundtrack will also receive a nomination for best musical score.
Below are both versions of This Is Me. Decide for yourself who does it best.
