Oscars - 10:58

(john legend and the solid gold bollywood dancers)

Now for the Best Songs. A bunch of Bollywood dancers run on the stage and an Indian singer sings "O Saya" from "Slumdog Millionaire". It's a great production number, but for some reason, the sound is muted and visually it comes off flat.
John Legend sings the Peter Gabriel song, "Down to Earth", from "Wall-E", followed by the final nominee, "Jai Ho", from "Slumdog Millionaire".
And the winner is "Jai Ho" from "Slumdog Millionaire".
Way to go Academy, you were worried about slumping ratings for the Oscar show, and you nominated three songs no one has ever heard of and can't even sing along with. Good move.
