This is my favorite category because well I love music :) We only 4 nominees this year instead of the usual 5 which means the music division of the Academy didn't like a lot of the songs that were qualified because only 4 songs had a passing "grade" to be nominated. Anyway, listen to the four nominated songs below. I personally like "I See The Light" because it's such a Disney classic tune, reminds me of my childhood haha. The other 3 songs are good too and I think AR Rahman and Dido's "If I Rise" from "127 Hours" will win this one.
