Neil Meron and Craig Zadan weren’t kidding around with this year’s movie music Oscars theme. (Even the comedic bits were song-and-dance vehicles for Seth MacFarlane). Musical numbers from this year’s nominees ran the gamut from Les Miserables‘ full-cast staging to Norah Jones crooning “Everybody Needs A Best Friend” from Ted, and Adele’s performance of her Oscar-winning Skyfall theme. Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson returned to sing her signature song from Dreamgirls, making Catherine Zeta-Jones’ “All That Jazz” Chicago number pale in comparison. And grand dames Shirley Bassey and Barbra Streisand fought through the show’s spotty sound mixing to deliver signature tunes.
