So, Peter didn't preform at the Oscars, which is kind of a bummer, but I understand why since he would have had to been shoehorned in a medley. I get that.

However, John Legend totally butchered Down to Earth. My wife made the remark that not only was his timing off in the song, but that he consistantly came in flat or off tone. It was pretty awful.

It makes me wonder who picked Legend to sing and why. I've never heard of the guy and am not familiar with his music, but he certainly didn't make me want to find out any more.

I couldn't agree with you more. It sounded truly awful. I was cringing with every note. I wonder if it he screwed it up on purpose since Peter didn't do the medly. I never heard of this yahoo either. But the Suweto choir was lovely!

While I agree that it was not a good performance, John Legend makes some decent music.
