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 Sunday, Feb. 22, live on ABC.

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

"Glory," written by John Stephens (aka John Legend) and Lonnie Lynn (aka 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."

The 87th Oscars will be held 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.
