Questlove’s Music Trivia game at Oscars 2021 ends with Glenn Close doing “Da Butt”
Questlove DJed the Oscars on Sunday night (April 25th) and ended the show late on the show with a game of music trivia. Emcee Lil Rel Howery tested celebrity knowledge of whether songs were Oscar nominees or won. After Andra Day studied “Purple Rain,” Glenn Close pestered Daniel Kaaluya for being too young to know Donna Summer’s music. The segment ended with Close enthusiastically identifying and dancing to “Da Butt,” a go-go hit made famous by Spike Lee’s School Daze. Check it out below.
Kaluuya won the Best Supporting Actor award in the early evening. Andra Day was nominated for best actress for her performance as Billie Holiday in the US against Billie Holiday, but lost to Frances McDormand (Nomadland). During the program, Questlove also gave a sneak peek of its upcoming Summer of Soul documentary coming out this summer after winning the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance. See that below too.
