Rahman performs at the Oscars


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.

Anne Hathaway, In Oscar Promo, Sings ‘Evita,’ Shakes Her Rump


Expect a clash of classics and… rump shaking in Sunday’s Oscar telecast.

Anne Hathaway, joined by James Franco as very untraditional Oscars co-hosts, is working to quiet the doubts about her comedic chops and get viewers excited about a new generation of hosts. And if she can go from classic opera to hip hop like this on the real telecast, well, the Academy may have made a very inspired choice.

The star, continuing her series of re-imagined film classics, quickly makes the switch from the iconic “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” from Evita to Wreckx-N-Effect‘s “Rump Shaker” in this promo. It’s hard to tell whether she’s more dictator’s wife or hip hop impresario — why don’t you watch and decide?

But remember: no cruel jokes. After all, Hathaway won’t be making them, either. Hear that, Ricky Gervais?
