Evaluate

Evaluate[expr]
causes expr to be evaluated even if it appears as the argument of a function whose attributes specify that it should be held unevaluated.
  • Evaluate only overrides HoldFirst, etc. attributes when it appears directly as the head of the function argument that would otherwise be held.  »
