Who was a fashion flop at 2012 Oscars?
A decade after their first and only previous appearance at the Oscar Awards, Cirque du Soleil ripped up the stage and soared through the air with a sweeping dance routine with breathtaking aerials that flew high above the star-studded audience.

Billed at the largest Cirque cast ever assembled for a single act, the bendy troup stole the show with an amazing performance!

Over 50 performers gathered to showcase their talents, while stunning visual effects were displayed in the background.

We think they should make this an annual thing — it was definitely a highlight of the night!
