Worst attempt at poverty
And now for a musical montage. From the stars of Les Mis, Dreamgirls and Chicago.
Catherine Zeta-Jones squeezes into her old Velma Kelly costume for a recreation of her youth/"All That Jazz" number, minus the split eagle and 2002 pregnancy belly. She's followed by Jennifer Hudson, who bellows "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" across the Dolby Theatre, smashing all the glasses and windows within three city blocks. Rounding off the tribute to movie musicals is the cast of Les Mis with a rendition of "One Day More." Though it's a little strange seeing the song performed in tuxedos and Harry Winston diamonds, we're still going to take this opportunity to go all fangirl on the cast... until Russell Crowe opens his mouth. Dang, he should not have followed J-Hud with a vocal performance.
