Twenty two minutes after she was asked to cover for her ailing friend, Luciano Pavarotti, Aretha Franklin takes the stage to perform the legendary aria "Nessun Dorma", a piece she sang previously a few days earlier (in her own register, I might add), without changing Pavarotti's key - which is no minor achievement. It begets one of the most extraordinary musical moments in awards show history. It brought the audience to a thunderous ovation.
