So Eminem performed “Lose Yourself” at the 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday night. Why? Great question. Em won the Academy Award for Best Original Song back in 2003 when he was nominated for 8 Mile, but he didn’t perform at the ceremony that year — in fact, he didn’t even show up — so I guess this was some sort of retribution for not being there back then.
He got on the stage immediately following a montage of movie music moments that was introduced by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
He recently released a new album, Music To Be Murdered By.
