Oscars Live: Dame Shirley Bassey Belts It Out

Dame Shirley Bassey's classic "Goldfinger" theme song is pure...well...gold. She's nearly 80, and both she and the tune are timeless. I have to hand it to her: She wore a gorgeous clingy gown (in gold, naturally!) and did her best to belt it out to the 1 billion viewers of the 85th Academy Awards. Brought back tons of memories and got me very excited to hear Adele's live rendition of "Skyfall" later in this show. Do you think her performance will cinch a win for Best Original Song?
