What does it take to make somebody rise up out of their chair after a compelling performance? Is it the emotion that you covey? Is it the movements you make? Maybe it’s the message. I think it is all of the above. The audience will only get wrapped up in a performance if all of the stars align. The perfect performance contains a great deal of preparation, creativity, and passion.
John Legend and Common did everything right tonight at the Oscars. Their performance of ‘ Glory’ connected all the dots. The feeling in John’s voice, the sound of the choir, the words of the song, the stage set up, all worked in perfect harmony, ultimately leading to a powerful a Capella ending.
In my opinion, there is no one more deserving than John Legend and Common to receive the Oscar for best song in a motion picture! Well played sirs!
