The 87th Academy Awards had a little bit of everything: stunning fashion, rousing speeches, the host's package, not-Joan Rivers and of course, awkward John Travolta. It also benefited greatly, as all award shows tend to these days, to big-and-bold musical performances throughout the night. Pinpointing what may have connected most with viewers is tricky, however, but data provided by music discovery app Shazam at least gives us an idea.
Five of the top seven most Shazamed performances were courtesy of nominees in the best original song category. Coming out on top was Adam Levine and Maroon 5's twinkly performance of "Lost Stars," a nominee from his film Begin Again. That was followed by Rita Ora's "Grateful," the Diane Warren-penned theme from Beyond the Lights, and Tim McGraw's emotional rendition of "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" from Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me.
