5 Of The Best Ever Oscars Performances

Lionel Ritchie and Diana Ross

Re-watch these powerful performances.

1. Endless Love - Diana Ross & Lionel Richie (1982)

This song brought together two of the biggest stars of the '80s for one of the most iconic songs of the decade. The film with the same name was only a modest success whereas the song became the second biggest-selling single of the year.

2. My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion (1998)

'Titanic' was the biggest movie of 1998 without a shadow of a doubt and Celine picked up the award for Best Original Song. Her performance was as dramatic as the movie with a full backing orchestra and some ominous fog.

3. Can You Feel The Love Tonight? - Elton John (1995)

Elton wrote this song for 'The Lion King' and delivered it at the Oscars in a way that only he could - just sat at the piano - proving what a star he is.

4. Skyfall - Adele (2013)

This was the first live performance of the Bond theme song and about 30 minutes later it picked up the gong for Best Original Song.

5. Streets Of Philadelphia - Bruce Springsteen (1994)

This was Bruce's first go at writing a song for a film and it won Best Original Song. The movie 'Philadelphia' starred Tom Hanks and he won Best Actor for his efforts.
