Jai Ho!

The Oscars telecast was full of performances last night, between host Hugh Jackman's opening number, his collaboration with Beyonce, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper, and all the best song nominees. It certainly kept the night interesting and I definitely enjoyed the rendition of Jai Ho, the end theme of Best Picture winner Slumdog Millionaire, performed by composer A.R. Rahman and John Legend.

The video also shows Rahman winning the Oscar for Best Original Score.

Note: Zac Efron is apparently pronouncing Rahman's name incorrectly, thanks to my journalism multimedia professor Rima Chaddha Mycynek for pointing that out.
