VIDEO: Beyonce and Hugh Jackman perform at the Oscars


Beyonce made a surprise appearance at the 81st Academy Awards, to join host Hugh Jackman for a spectacular song and dance number.

The “Bootylicious” babe showed off her sexy curves in a red sequined leotard with matching top hat and gloves.

A number that began as a tribute to the musical, with Jackman in white tie and tails singing and dancing with Beyoncé, turned into an amazing medley of songs from several musicals including Chicago and Moulin Rouge.

They were joined onstage at the end by Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical) and Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia!)

The Oscar medley was directed by Moulin Rouge filmmaker Baz Luhrmann.
