Hugh Jackman really did everything to make 'The Greatest Showman' one of the greatest shows.

The actor revealed that his surgeon advised against him singing in his latest film The Greatest Showman — but the actor did it anyway.

The 49-year-old explained that before the show was filmed, his doctor had just removed skin cancer from his nose and was wary of him singing.

“I had 80 stitches in my nose and my doctor said ‘you’re not allowed to sing,’ ” he said.

But when the cast gathered for the first time in New York City, Jackman couldn’t resist the temptation to show everyone what he’s got.

In the video, Hugh is seen belting out one of the show’s tunes “From Now On” alongside the cast, including 'The Bearded Lady' Keala Settle.

“Sorry (not sorry) to my surgeon,” he captioned the video on Facebook. “He told me not to sing. I did it anyway. And after … I ran back to get restitched. Worth it!!!”
