i liked the amy adams song but why was she given no set and dressed so plainly? everyone else got a cool stage to stand on. i really don't like the last song though - the one where people are dancing and it looks like amy adams?! boring and so typical. i think they should have cut that song and put in something from a different movie.

Amy Adams only wanted to do one song. Since "Happy Working Song" is more character based, she kind of had to sing it. It was weird that she was on stage by herself and what could they do? Have people dancing around in rat and pigeon costumes?

"Falling slowly". I absolutely loved Once and I was so happy when they won. I loved Markéta Irglová's speech, very sweet and moving.

while i am a huge fan of "enchanted" - i wasn't a big fan of the performances on stage. both "raise it up" and "falling slowly" were fabulous.

That's not even a question! Compared to the quiet, genuine intensity of "Falling Slowly" - where you could tell exactly how much this meant to the performers - the other numbers felt trite and fake. I'm so glad they got this one right!

I loved the movie once and loved the musicians. They were so talented and loved the live performance of falling slowly.

"Falling Slowly" from Once!!! I loved the movie, I loved their performance on the Independent Spirit Awards and I loved them last night!!!! Once was definitely one of the best movies all year!!!

Am I the only one with love for Jon Mclaughlin? I adore "So Close", its one of myafter" favorite songs! But I'll be the first to admit I'm biased because I'm a sucker for Disney style romance :D

How did Amy Adams get so gypped? Kristin Chenoweth gets to sing the best song from her movie while she gets stuck up on the stage by herself, no production number, no dancing pigeons and cockroaches, no nothing. Seriously, what happened here?

i thought falling slowly was alright. Obviously the guy can sing but his voice with the other girls voice just clashed. Some of the notes they hit made me cringe, although of course, its live.

I did not see Enchanted, but I had a different impression of what the movie would be like. I thought it was more of a twist on the traditional fairy tale, like good natured poking fun a bit. But the songs appeared to be completely cheezy - great singing and theatrical, but cheezy nonetheless. Falling Slowly seemed the most genuine to me.

I really liked the movie 'August Rush,' but I definitely need to check out 'Once!'

Definitely Falling Slowly. Matter of fact, I went straight to iTunes to rent Once so I can watch it tonight!

jspark, I agree. It was still my favourite performance of the night, but I would have preferred it, if it had just been the two of them.

The performance of Falling slowly was definitly the most genuine, but I don't think they needed the orchestra arrangement.
