1991: Madonna performs at The Oscars!!!




It's Monday evening, March 25th 1991 and Madonna makes her first ever appearance at the Academy Awards. In 1987 she was lined up to present an award at the Oscars, but this fell through at the last minute and 4 years later she made it to the ceremony!

Here is one of the most memorable performances of Madonna's career. She performs the Oscar winning song "Sonner or Later" from "Dick Tracy" at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles wearing a dress by the legendary Bob Mackie. The performance was choreographed by her Blond Ambition Tour choreographer Vince Patterson.

The video below is from the original live UK TV broadcast and also includes the full closing credits - Madonna's performance got its own page in the credits!
