Watch Adele, The Les Miserables Cast And More Perform At The Oscars
Before last night's Oscars we were told over and over again that the night's theme would be "A Tribute To Movie Music," with whispers of planned musical numbers and host Seth MacFarlane clearly itching to get his Sinatra-style singing out there. Of course, when the actual awards aired, any theme was overshadowed by what happened onstage, from Jennifer Lawrence's trip on her way to accepting Best Actress to Ben Affleck's teary eyes accepting Best Picture for Argo.
But looking back, there were a whole lot of musical moments to take up time onstage (and make it so people like the Best Visual Effects winners got played off by the Jaws music). There was Adele, there was Barbra, there was Shirley Bassey… and somehow in that mix there was Russell Crowe, the actor famously mocked for his singing in Les Miserables. Did he do any better onstage? Relive the moment in the videos below.

Let's start things off on a high note, with the always-stunning Adele, performing her Oscar-winning song "Skyfall" live for the first time. There were some clear sound mixing issues, with the orchestra drowning her out on that booming chorus, but that's a small price to pay to see Adele in all those amazing sequins.
