The streak that Common and John Legend’s song “Glory” has been riding has finally led them to Oscar gold. The song took home the coveted Best Song award on Sunday night after an incredible performance that led to a tear-filled standing ovation. Check it out above.
After the snubbing of Selma, the movie the song is featured in, in the acting and directing categories, we didn’t expect it to take home the award for Best Song, but if the slew of performances that Common and Legend have given is any indication, its power is truly formidable. Their eloquent acceptance speeches were the highlight of the Oscars this year. Check it out below.
“Glory” beat out “Everything Is Awesome” from The Lego Movie, “Grateful” from the show biz drama Beyond The Lights, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from Glen Campbell…It’s Me, and “Lost Stars” from Begin Again.
