The 84th Academy Awards kicked off in typical Billy Crystal fashion. Before singing a tune about the nominees, the nine-time host put himself into the movies -- literally. He kissed George Clooney in a scene from "The Descendants," and Justin Bieber showed up in a spoof of "Midnight in Paris." Bieber said he was there to lower the demographic of the awards show -- specifically targeting the 18- to 24-year-olds. The 84th Academy Awards kicked off in typical Billy Crystal fashion.
