John Legend Says Performing ‘All of Me’ at 2014 Grammy Awards Helped His Career Skyrocket
Nine-time Grammy Award winner John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigan wowed on the red carpet at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday (Feb. 8) night, wearing Versace and Gucci, respectively. Although the singer shined in his grey tailored look, his wife's sexy off-white Gucci cut-out gown was utterly drool-worthy.
John, whose 'All of Me’ is nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance, opened up about how performing the chart-topping song at the 2014 Grammy Awards sky rocketed his career. ‘I think the song jumped from 40-something to like No. 3 on the charts after the Grammys,” John told E! News' Ryan Seacrest. “I don’t think that it would have done as well with out that Grammy performance.”
Well, thank God for that. ‘All of Me’ was Legend’s first song on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart in nearly a decade. It went on to become the second best-selling song of 2014.
While ‘All of Me’ is a lauded track, the crooner will be performing, alongside Common, the Golden-Globe winning song ‘Glory’ from the film ‘Selma.' They will be introduced by Beyonce, who will sing ‘Take My Hand, Precious Lord.’
