We just loved hearing all the Oscar nominees perform this year!

Everything is Awesome from The Lego Movie, Grateful from Beyond the Lights, I'm Not Going to Miss You from Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me, and Lost Stars from Begin Again were all fantastic.

To start things off, Beyoncé, along with the Andrae Crouch choir and Blind Boys of Alabama, delivered a FLAWLESS performance of the gospel hit, Take My Hand, Precious Lord.

Our hats go off to B, John, and Common!
