John Legend - Medley: City Of Stars / Audition Lyrics




City of stars
Are you shining just for me?
City of stars
There's so much that I can't see
Who knows?
Is this the start of something wonderful and new?
Or one more dream that I cannot make true?

Barefoot, she smiled
And leapt, without looking
And tumbled into the Seine
The water was freezing
She spent a month sneezing
But said she would do it again

Here's to the ones who dream
Foolish as they may seem
Here's to the hearts that ache
Here's to the mess we make

She told me:
"A bit of madness is key
To give us new colors to see
Who knows where it will lead us?
And that's why they need us"

So bring on the rebels
The ripples from pebbles
The painters, and poets, and plays

And here's to the fools who dream
Crazy as they may seem
Here's to the hearts that break
Here's to the mess we make

City of stars
Are you shining just for me?
City of stars
You never shined so brightly

  18. Jasmine

    It's a shame they didn't just cast John Legend as Sebastian. Someone with actual singing talent in a musical, what a concept.

  43. Crow Black

    I can't imagine how good I'd be this song with Sinatra's voice

    Rayan Begar

    I don't know why, but your comment brought a tear to my eye. Too true.

    Claire Manipula

    I dont know why but i feel happy when i read your comment

    Vishesh Adlakha

    I don't know why but I am now able to hear Frank Sinatra sing.

    Gerardo. B

    The music equivalent to blue balls is not hearing this in Sinatra's voice.

  44. Andrea Torres

    I love the way he sings this song

  45. luka sadagashvili

    this is a worst performance

  46. Elena

  50. Marissa Jasmine Carter

    Been stuck in my head on repeat <3

  51. Tường Vy Nguyễn Lê

    +John Legend sang this song better than Ryan Gosling, I guarantee. +Interscope Records, please post the audio video of "Start a fire".

  52. Christian Emmanuel Munguía Sandoval

    If you want to know the perfect Beauty and love, you should listen this song.

  53. PointB1ank

    Goosebumps.

  54. Viviano Paña

    you are always amazing!
    you are one of a kind!
    wish I can sing with you one day!

  55. Jordan Ng

    man who is this guy. he has an amazing voice and I think he could be pro if he wanted to. what a shame

    Ana Azoma

    He is actually a famous singer. Have you never heard the song All of me?

  56. Zilan Yang

    I wish more singer could sing with their heart, instead of the sex drug raps

    Angelo Apiado

    *Cough Cough* Kendrick Lamar.

    BluePineapple72

    Zilan Yang What a reductive view on music.

    Queen Kallah

    That is their heart that’s the problem.....

    The Flying Jay YT

    @Angelo Apiado he tries to cure racism.

  57. Mica Stylinson

    i love john legend and i love every song of La la land this is amazing

  58. Marty MC

    very nice song but compared to Justin Timberlake's it's forgettable. Justin Timberlake's song was just so catchy and so popular I'm very disappointed did not win the Oscar

    Leonardo David Leal

    Good joke LOL

  59. Love

    pierced my heart with so much beauty 😍🙌

  60. MrShade525

    No offense to John Legend, he is truly amazing. But the Songs where formerly sung by People with a more average Talent and thats what made the Originals so charming in my opinion

    Winston Bribach

    The averageness of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone's singing abilities made it charming? I don't understand that concept.

    Nicole Arroyo

    Winston Bribach exactly

    Santa Claws

    Not a fancier of Gosling's pitchy singing.

    Jessica Carter

    Santa Claws I think the that more people could relate to Stone and Gosling's interpretation because their voices are average. And most people can't sing like John Legend. However, I completely disagree that the showed more emotion than John Legend. John Legend is a performer

    Gudetama

    I guess it's supposed to be about being relatable or something. They're average people It would kinda ruin it if some famous singer was supposed to be that average guy trying to be a jazz musician.

  61. Rikko

    Beautiful song!

  62. cameron crow

    Is there sheet music for this?

  63. Karam Rahmouni

    Emma Stone > John Legend

  64. Sanya Singh

    <3 HOLY GOD THIS IS PERFECT

  65. Adriana Rodriguez

    Does anyone have the lyrics for this?

    Keyz 1776

    Adriana Rodriguez put on closed caption

  66. Enrique C.

    This sounds so awful. Nothing like the performances by Ryan and Emma. I seriously don't understand how the fuck can people think this is better than the originals. I'm biased here, though, because I dislike John Legend's voice.

    Natia Fox

    original is so much better, emotional and soulful <3

    Winston Bribach

    Main issue with the original is the voice. Ryan Gosling cannot sing. Emma Stone has a clean voice, but it's her acting that carries the original through rather than her singing ability. John Legend's voice is so much better.

    Santa Claws

    Your lack of exquisite taste and music aptitude are the reasons why you don't understand how the fuck people can think this version is better. Hope this clears your doubts.

  67. Becky Miracle

    yes| Awesome|

  68. taj

    <3 (27.02.2017)

  69. Liesl Lee

    John Legend is the Ray Charles of our generation. Absolutely amazing. In fact, I think he sounds a bit more sensitive than Ray Charles.

    Mateusz Karwecki

    Gayish Ray Charles

    Will Hung

    we use the term faggit nowdays

    Mateusz Karwecki

    @Will Hung yea, but i really wanted to ad -ish to my word, it makes me hard somehow

    Andy

    Mateusz Karwecki you need help

  70. Sretko Lukovic

    I like the imperfection of Gosling perfomance more than excellent Legend :)

  71. taj

    This is an emotional rollercoaster.
