Auli’i Cravalho got hit in the head with a flag during her Oscars performance
Auli’i Cravalho is a total professional: On Sunday, the 16-year-old Moana star took the stage at the 2017 Academy Awards to perform the film’s Oscar-nominated “How Far I’ll Go.” During the song, Cravalho was knocked in the head by one of the flags moving behind her — and she kept going without missing a single beat.
Cravalho has received a lot of praise on Twitter for her poise and professionalism during the moment — from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s Ming-Na Wen to Daredevil comic book writer Charles Soules — because she still finished the song on a strong note.
“Bravo, @auliicravalho! Beautiful voice, stunning beauty, total pro to continue even after that bop in the head by the flag,” tweeted Wen.

Moana is up for two awards: Best Animated Movie and Best Original Song for “How Far I’ll Go,” which was written by Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda.
