A R Rahman performed his Oscar-nominated song If I Rise from Danny Boyle‘s film 127 Hours, at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards. The composer had originally collaborated with Dido for this number. Dido, however, could not make it to the Oscar ceremony due to her advanced pregnancy. Singer Florence Welch took her place at the ceremony. So what did you think of the performance? Did Rahman do a good job? Sadly, Rahman lost out the award to Randy Newman for the song We Belong Together from the film, Toy Story 3.
