    It was nice for the younger fans of the Oscars to represented by their role models. And for all the haters out there – think of this. They have made millions, you have not. Suck it up.

  • rowanne

    i don’t understand how people can continuously gush over “ZANESSA! ZOMG!” they had like, 10 seconds total of singing. seriously! can people not appreciate hugh jackman and beyonce!?
    jeeze. really. stop obsessing just because “they’re so young and pretty!”. woo. they’re great! too bad they’ll be forgotten in 10 years.
    i’ve got nothing against high school musical, but i mean, really.
    focus on the objective people.

    I’m not really a fan of beyonce but i really thought she owned this performance. as for zac and vanessa, yea, they sang two lines, danced in the background, and if hugh jackman didnt mention them at the end I doubt anyone who hasnt watched HSM3 would have any clue who they were. and yea, vanessa’s dress looked like a trash bag.

    Yeppers, that performance was owned by Hugh & Beyonce. Dominic and Amanda where good as well. Zanessa….well, they looked like a couple of kids playing dress up in their parent’s clothes. They were way to made up. To me, they just looked so out of place on that stage with the rest of them. Especially at the end when Zac was holding Beyonce’s hand while they were taking a bow. They were so outta their league.

  • jazz

    Vanessa and zac did amazing!! :D
    btw zaaaaaaaaaaashley you have serious problems!!
    I know Vanessa and zac’s lines were short but they did it better than any other celeb. would do it!! =3
    Vanessa love you & can’t wait for you’re movie =D

  • someone

    this is for Vanessa haters,,

    FUCK YOU!! :@
    you are lame..ugly…fat…and Very VERY STUPID!!

    it’s not that i’m a fan!! it’s that i cant take it when people call her or any one else that they are ugly,trash bags?! or any of that it’s just CRAP!!
    She is a very beautiful,talented,nice,stylish and an innocent girl!!
    maybe she had some mistakes but she did apoligize and it all happened because of some loser hacked her mobile and took the picture and ya it’s been like i dont know maybe 3 years since that!! SO GET FUCKIN OVER IT!!

    I can’t believe people are saying Beyonces thighs are fat. She’s thicker, but she’s definitely not jiggly or anything; she’s in great shape.
    Not everyone is stick thin.

  • Tiffany

    This is one of the first times where Vanessa Hudgens looked SO much prettier than Beyonce. B is usually very pretty, but not here.


    I think that the whole performance was great, Beyonce was fantastic and proved why she is the only triple thread artist on the world stage.Hugh was handsome as always and with a very good & sexy voice. As for zach and vanessa and the other two they shouldn’t have been there
