OSCAR® NOMINEES COMMON AND JOHN LEGEND TO
PERFORM

TOGETHER AT THE OSCARS®

LOS ANGELES, CA – Musical artists Common and John Legend will perform their
Oscar®-nominated song “Glory” at the 87th Oscars, show producers Craig Zadan and
Neil Meron announced today. The Oscars, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, will air
on Sunday, February 22, live on ABC.

“Common and John Legend are artists
who have always lifted our spirits and made us think,” said Zadan and Meron.
“The Oscar stage is that much more profound because of their presence and we
welcome them.”

“Glory,” written by John Stephens (a.k.a. John Legend) and
Lonnie Lynn (a.k.a. Common) for the film “Selma,” is nominated for Original
Song. The four other nominated songs are “Everything Is Awesome” from “The Lego
Movie,” “Grateful” from “Beyond the Lights,” “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from “Glen
Campbell…I’ll Be Me” and “Lost Stars” from “Begin Again.”

Common won a
Grammy® in 2002 for Best R&B Song for “Love Of My Life (An Ode To Hip Hop),”
and in 2007 for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for “Southside,” with
Kanye West. His many acting credits include the films “American Gangster,”
“Wanted,” “Date Night” and “Selma,” in which he plays the role of Civil Rights
leader James Bevel.

Legend is a nine time Grammy-winning
singer/songwriter.  His critically acclaimed debut album, “Get Lifted,”scored
multiple Grammy Awards in 2006, including Best R&B Album, Best New Artist
and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.  The follow up was the platinum-selling
“Once Again,” which garnered a Best Male R&B Performance nod.  Legend’s most
recent highly acclaimed fourth studio album, “Love in the Future,” scored two
Grammy  nominations and features his break out hit, “All of Me,” which is his
highest selling and charting song to date and also earned a 2015 Grammy Award
nomination for Best Pop Solo Performance.

The 87th Oscars will be held on
Sunday, February 22, 2015, at the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland
Center® in Hollywood, and will be televised live on the ABC Television Network
at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. The Oscars, produced by Zadan and Meron, also will be
