Re: What a great way to start the Oscars!

Two past Idol contestants were singing on the Oscars tonight.  Adam Lambert and Jennifer Hudson - neither of them won their season of Idol, but they both are great singers who have gone much further than some of the Idol winners!  Good job tonight, Adam!!

My friend called saying you have to see it...Adam is no match for Freddie but to be fair nobody is so I went to YouTube & watched Queen's performance at Live Aid 1985, it's great...what a powerful voice & Freddie owned the stage, a one of a kind talent.

The opening was wonderful.  Adam Lambert - he's great.

 

I wasn't sure how it was going to go without a host - I liked it a lot.  

 

Tina Fey, Amy Pohler, and Maya Rudolph were hysterical as the first presenters.

Great night for Rami Malek. Sorry that he fell after his win.

 

Loved Bohemian Rhapsody. Will watch it again.

 

Just heard that Queen is the 1st rock band to ever open Oscars.

I enjoyed the show, but I guess I'm in the minority for thinking it kind of needed a host.
