    # 22 Grow up
    Musicals are part of our great American Heritage. The greats lile Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire did musicals. Back in those days actors had to be able to act sing and dance. Back then it was about showmanship. I think the musical had a point and it was well produced. Yes. The Musical is back and it is about time.

    #27 they had every right to be here.

    I liked the new and improved Oscars this year, it actually kept my interest through the end. Great job to all!
    The AP actually points out some mistakes from the performance that I thought they all covered up very well.

    I am so confused as to why Beyonce was even a part of this number. I would have liked it was better if they would have gotten someone who was actually in a musical last year….well wait i shouldnt say that cause she might have been and I just didnt watch whatever she was in…..At the very least they could have gotten someone that would have sang live…….

    This was by far the best Oscars. Love it. Beyonce and Hugh made the show. Although Zac and Vanessea should have stayed home, can’t hold a candle to Beyonce the woman can sing.

    I loved Zac and Vanessa =) how cute to be able to perform or act with your love

    e Says:

    Actually, I think the only reason why they included Zac,Vanessa,Amanda is to attract viewers.They could have just made it Beyonce and Hugh since they sang most of the song.

    DDB Says:

    At least Queen Latifah sang LIVE and sounded great. Beyonce LIPSYNCHED!!!!! Why was Beyonce even there? Was is bad enough that she had to RUIN Etta James “At Last”? She had to show up at the Oscars!! She is a HORRIBLE actress. Just GO AWAY!!!

    Can’t beleive they trashed the Academy Awards with Zac & Vanessa. They should be EMBARASSED. That was HUMILATING.
