Watch: Jennifer Hudson, Common, & John Legend Render Stunning Performances At #Oscars2015


The 87th Annual Academy Awards may be flooding Twitter timelines for its host of memorable quotes (i.e. “honoring the best & whitest,”), red carpet slayage, and trophy wins and snubs, but its most talked about moments may have just come courtesy of its music performances.

As if Rita Ora didn’t rock the stage enough with her amazing live showing of ‘Grateful,’ found aboard the ‘Beyond the Lights’ soundtrack, Grammy winners Common, John Legend and Jennifer Hudson hit the Dolby Theatre stage to perform stunning renditions of songs from some of this year’s nominated films and more.

    Where is Lady Gaga’s performance?!? She sounded DIVINE! She’s not just a pop singer. But, a certified VOCALIST!

    John Legend did a fantastic job, and I guess Jennifer Hudson is this generation’s Pattie Labelle, called and singer for screaming in a microphone. All she needs is to assault the crowd with her heels and boom, she’s got soul *rolls eyes*

    Oh well, she did do a good job though, well somewhat. I didn’t have to turn the volume down, so good enough.

      The only thing that keeps me from liking J Hud is her TONE quality. Its just too much for me. But, she was NOT screaming at all tonight. She sounded very controlled & healthy.

        She has the kind of tone I like for certain songs, a heavy tone suits certain songs and that’s what I like about her voice. I just don’t like that she cannot tell the difference between singing/projecting and screaming.

        Hopefully someone in her team gives her some tips.

      I personally think that the Patti Labelle of this generation is Fantasia.

    That was epic. I can tell she wanted to do her usual explosive belting, but she held back and killed it as a vocalist, not a screamer.

    The Glory performance was empowering and both John Legend and Common did an exceptional job. Jennifer is fast becoming a tribute act. Honestly it is making her appear older than she actually is. But she did a great job.

    Jennifer did great! Gaga’s was beautiful! But that GLORY PERFORMANCE By Common & John Legend >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    I´m glad Glory has been winning everything. Such an emotive song.
    John Legend and Lady Gaga had teh best performances once more, just like at the grammys.
