8. Musicals Reign Supreme
Last night, the Oscars paid tribute to musicals, and the gimmick paid off tenfold. Among the most notable numbers were the “Les Miserables” cast’s ensemble performance of “Suddenly” and “One Day More,” as well as Dame Shirley Bassey’s incredible rendition of the James Bond classic “Goldfinger,” which was originally released in 1965. Not to be outdone, Adele belted out her own James Bond tune, “Skyfall,” which later earned her a Best Original Song Oscar, and Jennifer Hudson wowed with a tune from “Dreamgirls.” —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
