Dame Angela Lansbury performed Beauty And The Beast on stage and it was perfect


Dame Angela Lansbury surprised fans with a live performance of Beauty And The Beast as the hit Disney film was remembered with a 25th anniversary screening on Sunday - and it was incredible.

The 90-year-old actress put on a pitch-perfect rendition of the beloved movie's title song, the one that she made famous in her role as teapot Mrs Potts back in 1991.

The Murder, She Wrote star took to the stage at the Alice Tully Hall in New York in the midst of the screening to do her thing, and fans in the audience were clearly floored.

Beauty And The Beast made history a quarter of a century ago as it became the first animated movie to be nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award, although it lost out to Silence Of The Lambs.

The title track itself picked up the Oscar for Best Song, and the film was also rewarded for its score.

A live-action version of the film is set to hit cinemas next year, starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens in the leading roles.
