The song is known as a favourite of Martin Luther King, and features on the official soundtrack of the historical drama.

"We’re getting an introduction from the great Beyoncé," Common told Rolling Stone. "That's a whole other level, to have her singing Precious Lord. I'm excited."

"It's the Grammys stage, so we're going to deliver some of the best performances we ever had. Expect the spirit of what the movement is about, and the spirit of what Glory is about."

The track Glory won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song in January, and is also nominated for an Oscar.

Beyoncé famously opened the Grammys in 2014 with a performance of her hit Drunk in Love. The singer is nominated for six Grammy awards at this year's ceremony including Album of the Year, and will reportedly be introduced by her close friend Gwyneth Paltrow.

The performance will be an opportunity for fans to see if Beyoncé is pregnant with her second child. The singer sparked speculation that she was expecting in January, after she shared an Instagram picture that showed her buried in sand with a big bump on her stomach.

While Beyoncé and her husband Jay Z have not addressed the rumours, the star's former Destiny's Child bandmate Michelle Williams denied that her friend was pregnant.

"You know, when she was pregnant, people said she wasn't pregnant and you know, it's just no truth to it, sorry!" Michelle said.
