(PIX11) – Common and John Legend brought the house down with their Oscars 2015 performance of “Glory,” but it was a botched high-five with Oprah as the singers returned to their seats that had Twitter buzzing.

Common appeared to push past the “Queen of All Media” as she went for the up-top congratulation, instead embracing Selma star David Oyelowo.  Oprah appeared to notice, turning her head as Common walked, then high-fiving John Legend instead.  Everything appeared to end well, though, as Oprah did finally get a hug:

Common and Oprah both starred in Selma alongside Oyelowo, but the perceived snub had many jokingly fearing for Common’s well-being on Twitter:

Oprah later posted an Instagram photo with the caption, “Favorite moment of the night!  Ahhh #Glory!”
