Who Had the Best Musical Performance at the 2014 Oscars?

By Alicia Dennis on
(Getty Images)The 86th Academy Awards were a little less musical than in years past, thanks to a slightly smaller Best Original Song category (sorry, Alone Yet Not Alone) and a host who seemed determined not to fill time with song and dance numbers. But there were still a number of memorable performances. Which one was your personal favorite? If I had to rank them in order of most to least favorite, it'd have to be as follows:1.

It might be hard to remember that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have a new album out (Mosquito) amidst all the hype of the wide range of hot summer tracks currently on the airwaves (Robin Thicke, Daft Punk, and Pharrell, I'm talking to you).
