A few weeks ago we mentioned those adorable fifth-grade rug-rats from Staten Island's P.S. 22 were going to the Oscars. Well, right at the end of last night's marathon telecast they showed up to sing one of cinema's most timeless tunes; director Gregg "Mr. B" Breinberg led the kids in a rousing rendition of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow". And although it's no "Just Dance"*, the kids nailed it (as usual). Watch below.



Gothamist had a few sappy notes about the performance, which were enough to melt even the Grinchiest of Oscar viewers:

10-year-old Azaria Chamorro told the Daily News she got to hold a (very heavy) Oscar, and described the afterglow of the performance, saying, "Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, it was really crazy. When we ended on the final note, I started jumping up and down and crying. I cried for a long, long time I was so happy."


AWWWWWWWWWWWW. Love these kids. Think they could do a King Of Limbs track?

*Sarcasm

A bonus: one of my favorite covers from their archives. I wish I was this cool when I was 10.
