In support of the highly-anticipated conversion therapy drama Boy Erased, the film’s stars Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, and Troye Sivan made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday (Oct. 29). Sivan performed “Revelation” to close out the episode, singing the moving ballad on television live for the first time. Complete with a live string quartet, the pop star took his contribution to the Boy Erased soundtrack to new emotional heights.
His Boy Erased co-star Lucas Hedges spoke earlier in the show about understanding his own sexuality in terms that are not so black and white, and how he discovered it through an especially helpful health teacher. DeGeneres told the leading man, “You made a statement that is really important for young people to hear because I think it’s confusing for people.”
