Us Weekly broke the news after speaking with Common, who will perform the Oscar-nominated song "Glory" from "Selma" with John Legend during the broadcast: "We do have an incredible introduction to our performance," Common said on Saturday. "A segue into our song 'Glory,' as a tribute to 'Selma,' being done by the great Beyoncé. That's one of the greatest talents you can have, helping us segue into it. To co-create a performance with someone like her. It's good."
Rumors that Beyoncé would perform were first reported by Billboard. According to both that site and Us, Beyoncé will sing "Take My Hand Precious Lord" as a tribute to "Selma," the Best Picture-nominated film about Martin Luther King Jr.
A representative for the Grammys was not immediately available for comment.
