NEW YORK (AP) — Common and John Legend will perform their Oscar-nominated song “Glory” at the Academy Awards.

The song is from the civil rights drama “Selma” and is among the five nominees for best song. The other four 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 Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences also announced Tuesday 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 best-song Oscar last year for the ubiquitous “Frozen” song.

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