Luke Evans reprised his role as Gaston to perform during the Disney Family Singalong on ABC. Evans portrayed Gaston in the live-action remake of Disney’s Beauty and The Beast.
For the performance of the song “Gaston,” Evans was joined by Josh Gad and Alan Menken, his castmates from the movie.
Recently, Evans debuted his reddish-pink hair on Instagram. He showed off the new color while standing in front of the ocean in Florida sipping coconut juice alongside his boyfriend Rafeal Olarra. He also celebrated his 41st birthday with a cake full of seashell decorations.
“Gaston” Performance Recap
Josh Gad opened the performance by giving himself an introduction, and then he introduced Luke Evans and Alan Menken for Beauty and the Beast’s “Gaston.” He sang the introduction to the song, and Evans took over at the point of the song where Gaston began singing.
He showed off his pipes throughout the song, singing “When I was a lad I ate four dozen eggs every morning to help me get large, and now that I’m grown I eat five dozen eggs so I’m roughly the size of a barge.”
At some points during the performance, he was visibly straining to get out the high notes, but he still stayed in tune the whole time and sounded amazing while performing from home. He and Gad performed from their homes while Menken performed at his own piano.
Evans stayed in character the whole time, taking the time to look over at Gad through the screen. Fans on Twitter noticed the visible effort Evans put in throughout his performance, with one viewer tweeting “Josh is just strolling along. Meanwhile Luke Evans is over here matching his hair color belting out Gaston’s section.”
