2. that award goes to the song's writers: lyrics & music. who performs it is not relevant. Did Legend

7. Is the concept of stage names

And real names that hard?

For publishing, they use real names.

17. I wanted him to get credit....

Using his birth name made it appear he was discounted.

18. I think it is his legal name

and the name the song is published under.
John Stephens cashes the check. John Legend sings.

Did you also think Common's real name was Common? Why was he up there?

14. That was somewhat amusing

Those guys barely had time to sit back down after doing the song, when they were called right back up to get their award.
