Los Angeles : Indian composer A.R. Rahman performed at the 84th Academy Awards here as part of the Oscar band in his third performance at the prestigious award ceremony.

"Oscar sangamam - if you are watching the Oscars live, catch our Oscar superband headed by Hans Zimmer perform tonight," Rahman posted on his Facebook page for his fans.

He even posted a picture with all members of the band, which performed throughout Sunday night's ceremony.

Last year Rahman had sung his tracks from "127 Hours" at the Oscar ceremony.

In 2009, the 46-year-old performed for the first time at the Oscar stage and in the same year he won two golden statuettes for best original score and best original song ("Jai ho") for the movie "Slumdog Millionaire".

Other performances at the ceremony also included Esperanza Spalding's rendition of Louis Armstrong's "What a wonderful world" as a tribute to the entertainers who died during the past year.

There was also a performance by circus arts and street entertainment group Cirque du Soleil.
