Common Talks About Leaving Oprah Hanging At Oscars

Common explains what happened with Oprah’s high five at the Oscars.

Common paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel last night, and Jimmy put him on blast for leaving Oprah hanging at the Oscars. Com and John Legend took home an Oscar for their contribution to the film “Selma,” the song “Glory,” and when he went up to accept the award, Oprah excitedly put her hand up to give him a high five. Although it looks like Common is gunna go for it for a second, he ends up sidetracking her for someone else, leaving John Legend to pick up the slack and give Oprah the high five.

Jimmy grills Common on it, replaying the clip in slow motion. Common explains how he wasn’t sure if the high five was for him or Legend.
