Alex Newell performs "This Is Me."

MCC Theater's annual Miscast gala is one of the most anticipated events of the spring Broadway season, in which musical theater's biggest stars perform songs from roles for which they would ordinarily never be cast.

Monday night's show, which honored actress Laurie Metcalf and featured performers like Sara Bareilles, Robert Fairchild, Auli'i Cravalho and Wesley Taylor, among many more, had an especially stirring finale, premiered by Billboard below: Glee alum Alex Newell, currently starring in the acclaimed new Broadway production of Once on This Island, performed the Oscar-nominated Greatest Showman anthem "This Is Me."

Watch Newell's showstopping performance (joined by Krystina Alabado, Marcus Paul James, Tiffany Mann and Ben Thompson) here.
