Shirley Bassey Performs James Bond Tribute at Oscars


You may not be as familiar with Shirley Bassey as you are with her voice.

This year’s Oscars marked the 50th anniversary of the James Bond films, and what better way to honor that than to have the person behind the classic 007 song perform. Adele may have done a new rendition to the movie’s song, but nothing beats an original.

Halle Berry introduced Bassey who gave a standing ovation-worthy performance of “Goldfinger” to commemorate five decades of the Bond franchise! Performing this tribute marked her first trip to the Academy Awards.
