Legend to perform Glory at Oscars

John Legend and Common are to treat the Oscar audience to a rendition of their nominated song Glory.

The track, which is from the civil rights drama Selma, is among the five nominees for best song.

It will be up against 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.

John tweeted: "I'm so honoured to announce that @TheAcademy invited me and @common to perform at the #Oscars on Feb. 22nd!"

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences also announced that Let It Go songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez are writing an original number for host Neil Patrick Harris.

The pair won the Oscar last year for the ubiquitous Frozen song.

The 87th Oscars will be held in Los Angeles on February 22.
