Oscar winning composer AR Rahman made his presence felt at the Oscar’s this time as part of the Oscar band. Rahman who won two Oscars in 2009 for Slumdog Millionaire enthralled the audience this time with his instrumentals and vocals. The musician had performed at the Academy awards last year too when he had performed his tracks from the film '127 Hours'.

Announcing his happiness on being part of the Oscars, he posted in a social networking site, “Oscar sangamam - If you are watching the Oscars live, catch our Oscar superband headed by Hans Zimmer perform tonight.” He also had posted a photo of the band.  

The performances at the ceremony included Esperanza Spalding's rendition of Louis Armstrong's 'What a Wonderful World' as a tribute to the dozens of entertainment industry professionals who died last year.

There was also an interlude from Cirque du Soleil. At the 84th Academy Awards, "The Dark Knight Rises" composer Hans Zimmer was the show's musical consultant with Pharell Williams.
