Oscars: Common and Andra Day Perform "Stand Up for Something" From 'Marshall'

The rapper and singer took the stage at Sunday night's show.

Oscar winner Common and Andra Day performed "Stand Up for Something," a nominee for best original song, from Marshall at Sunday night's Academy Awards.

"Stand Up for Something" was written by Lonnie Lynn and Diane Warren.

"It all means nothing If you don't stand up for something," Day sang. 

Behind Common and Day were nine individuals who stood under lights in black attire.

Common and Warren wrote the lyrics before and after Trump was elected.

"I hope it makes everybody stand up and not take any of this shit," Warren has said.

Marshall tells the story of the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall, and one of his first cases. The film stars Chadwick Boseman, Sterling K. Brown, Kate Hudson and Josh Grad.
