The 2013 Oscars, a lengthy and stuffy show as usual, this year kicked off with a seemingly eternal monologue by Seth MacFarlane. Despite a multitude of dips and low points on Sunday night, all was well for about three minutes when Adele took the stage for her performance of "Skyfall," the theme song for the James Bond film of the same name.

Although the sound mix was notably not that great (for any of the performances), Adele gave one stellar show, later taking home a win for Best Original Song.
