So many feelings right now!

John Legend and Common completely wowed both the audience and viewers at home with their performance of "Glory" from Selma Sunday night at the Oscars.

In fact, their presentation was so powerful that it moved many A-list actors to tears.

As soon as the last note was delivered, cameras panned to David Oyelowo who played Martin Luther King Jr. in the film. Tears were streaming down his face as he embraced his cast including Oprah WinfreyChris Pine also couldn't hold back his emotions as tears rolled down his face.

If you thought the performance was impressive, wait until you hear their acceptance speeches. 

Visibly emotional from the win, Common immediately thanked God who he believes "lives in us all." He also detailed the time he performed "Glory" on the same bridge King and civil rights leaders marched on so many decades ago.

"This bridge was built on hope," he explained. "[It was] welded with compassion and elevated by love for all human beings." 

Legend added that as artists, it's their duty to create songs that share what life is like today. 

"We wrote this song for a film that was based on something 50 years ago but we say Selma is now because the struggle for justice is right now," he proclaimed. "When people are marching to our song, we want to say we are with you. We see you. We love you and march. God bless you."
