John Legend and Common will perform their nominated song “Glory” from Selma on the Oscars telecast. Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron tweeted out the news, as did Legend.

Last week, Legend told EW that an Oscars performance was likely to happen. “We’re thrilled that the song is nominated, and we know that we wrote a song for a movie that is really special and that is really meaningful to people and any opportunity we get to perform will hopefully inspire more people to see the film,” he said. Legend and Common will also perform their song at the Grammys.
