Hey TV watchers: Bet you wondered how they pulled off that "Wizard of Oz" tribute that showed Pink in Kansas and later in the Land of Oz as she sang "Over the Rainbow" during the Oscar telecast.

It took more than five projectors beaming images onto a translucent screen masking the singer to pull it off.

While the effect may have appeared magical on television, those in the Dolby Theatre audience couldn't really make out Pink for most of the song.

Still, they were impressed.

Jamie Foxx was the first on his feet after she finished.

It was Matthew McConaughey who was the loudest, shouting "WOO HOO!" multiple times.

He's her neighbor, after all.
