VIDEO: Eddie Vedder at the Oscars

Pearl Jam fans that tuned into last night's telecast of the 90th Annual Academy Awards were greeted with a surprise performance from Eddie Vedder.

Vedder provided the soundtrack to the award show's "In Memorium" segment and performed a moving cover of Tom Petty's "Room at the Top."

Blogger Erica Banas has a weird affinity for award shows and acceptance speeches.  If she is ever in need of a good cry, she watches Tom Hanks' Oscar acceptance speech for Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in 'Philadelphia.'
