From Lady Gaga to Adam Levine, some of music’s biggest stars hit the Oscar stage Sunday night.
Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Common, Tim McGraw, Rita Ora, Anna Kendrick, Jack Black, Tegan and Sara and The Lonely Island also performed at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
You can watch all the performances below, and see how Billboard ranked them here. Which was your favorite? Take our poll and let us know!
Adam Levine, “Lost Stars”
7. Rita Ora, “Grateful”
With laser lights and wisps of smoke washing over her leather gloves (perhaps a Fifty Shades of Grey call-back?), Rita Ora was given a few seconds to display her vocal control, and thoroughly impressed the star-studded audience. Diane Warren‘s Beyond the Lights anthem “Grateful” only received what seemed like a few seconds to shine, but Ora haters be damned: The U.K. singer more than held her own in her Oscars debut.
6. Jennifer Hudson, “I Can’t Let Go” (In Memoriam)
Need a tender tribute from a powerhouse vocalist for your awards ceremony? Jennifer Hudson‘s name should be on your shortlist. Three years after honoring Whitney Houston at the Grammy Awards, the Dreamgirls Oscar winner graced the Academy Awards stage to perform “I Can’t Let Go” (which she performed on Smash!) following the In Memoriam montage. Granted, the performance might have been more effective had it actually played out over the montage, but Hudson’s pipes predictably dazzled nonetheless.
Tim McGraw, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You”
Neil Patrick Harris’ Opening Number With Anna Kendrick and Jack Black
Tegan and Sara & The Lonely Island, “Everything Is Awesome”
Lady Gaga, The Sound of Music Medley
John Legend & Common, “Glory”
