An unlikely song for America to embrace, but a deserving one nonetheless, Jai Ho won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 2008. The song is driving Indian pop with a soaring chorus, a bit of hip-hop flavor, and even a brief country passage. Rahman is assisted by singers Sukhvinder Singh, Tanvi Shah, and Mahalaxmi Iyer.
