The singer wore two stunning looks to perform her hit songs "Levitating," "Pretty Please," "Hallucinate" and "Don't Start Now" at Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party in Los Angeles. For her first look, she wore a velvet Balenciaga gown that featured long sleeves and a full mermaid skirt. Over the turtleneck, she wore a stunning Bulgari necklace.

The dress was sheer with silver fringe on the sleeves and skirt. Elton John's viewing party is typically one of the biggest parties of Oscars night but this year (like everything else) it went virtual. Still, he managed to raise $3 million for the global effort to end AIDS through online viewing.
