Common And John Legend Are Taking ‘Glory’ To The Oscars Stage
The masses may not be content with the lack of nominations for Ava DuVernay’s Selma at this year’s Academy Awards, but the film’s lead single has been well-received. Adding to Common and John Legend’s “Glory” streak, the two are set to perform their uplifting song on the coveted Oscars stage. Taking to Twitter with the announcement, Common remarked that he was “humbled and blessed” to have the opportunity:

Common and Legend snagged their first Golden Globe awards for “Glory” this year, taking home the hardware for Best Original Song. The two are also up for an Academy Award in the Original Song category. “Common and John Legend are artists who have always lifted our spirits and made us think,” Oscars producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement. “The Oscar stage is that much more profound because of their presence and we welcome them.” The Oscars will broadcast live on Feb. 22 on ABC.
