Common And John Legend Win Oscar For Best Original Song ‘Glory’ (Video)

COMMONJOHN

Winners: Common and John Legend

Common and John Legend took home the Oscar for Best Original Song for ‘Glory’, which features on the ‘Selma’ soundtrack.

I think I might be the only person who cringes when Common starts rapping on this record. His lyrical content is spot on, but the rapping also sounds awkward and a little out of place. I prefer to just hear John sing. 

Congratulations Common and John Legend.
