Bridge Over Troubled Waters

Art Garfunkel's known for the staggering purity of his crystalline vocals, and rightfully so. Still, I have to assume the first time he heard Lady Soul zoom up an octave as she approached the chorus of his signature song, he thought, "well...shit."

Also note the beauty of awards shows: Aretha Franklin is introduced by Andy damn Williams, of all people. I mean, I just. Also, it takes nearly two minutes before Miss Franklin graces us with her vocals—and it feels like about 15 seconds, thanks to her lovely piano playing. But note to the director: the organist is awesome, but we really didn't need to see his hands as much as we needed to see Aretha.
