"Show Yourself" is a song from the 2019 Disney film Frozen II. It is performed by Idina Menzel and Evan Rachel Wood, and written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.


Elsa follows a mysterious voice across the Dark Sea to Ahtohallan. She explores memories of the past, discovering the secrets of what occurred in the Enchanted Forest and the source of her powers. She sings "Show Yourself" as she dives deeper toward the truth.

The original version of the song was approximately six-and-a-half minutes long.

"It had to be really triumphant and the process took us about six months to do because all the rest of the story was still locking. We just had to keep rewriting the last three minutes of the song so much [assisted by story artist Mark Smith]. But now I really love the moment when she [tames] Nokk, the water horse, and you feel this joyful settling in Elsa."

Lopez gave a similar account: "When we saw the first round of visuals and then we saw it in the film, everyone agreed changes needed to happen. And it went back and forth for months—it’s now four minutes and 20 seconds and it has a big ending. It transformed a lot, and it was hard."

The song debuted at number 99 on the Billboard Hot 100 before rising to 70 in its second week.
