When it comes to this year's crop of Oscar nominees, we think it's safe to say Lindsey Stirling has a clear favorite: The Greatest Showman. In a new video, the multi-talented musician performs a medley of hits from the blockbuster film that is just as powerful as they are on the big screen with lyrics.


Included in the medley are three songs from the movie — which stars Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, and Zendaya to name a few. For the mix, the 31-year-old chose to include "A Million Dreams," "Never Enough," and "Rewrite the Stars." The tunes intertwine beautifully between themselves with Stirling on the violin and Kit Nolan on the piano.

Interestingly, it seems Stirling didn't highlight perhaps the biggest song from the entire film. "This Is Me" won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song – Motion Picture back in January and is nominated for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards this weekend. Kudos to Stirling for picking lesser-known pieces that people should definitely pay attention to.

"I did this medley because I'm a huge fan of the film, the music, the characters, the storyline," Stirling — whose style is on point with a perfectly-themed top hat — said at the end of the clip, calling out both Jackman and Efron. "It's so inspiring."
