Eminem Oscars Performance Sparks Hilarious Audience Reactions

Barbra Streisand

Idina Menzel looking slightly confused watching Eminem at the Oscars. And then-for reasons widely unbeknownst to the audience-Eminem himself appeared onstage to perform the 2002 No. 1 hit.

If you were scratching your head as to why Eminemperformed "Lose Yourself" at the 2020 Oscars, you're not alone.

"I want to say the first time it was ever talked about was after Justin Timberlake opened with Can't Stop the Feeling in (2017)".

In an interview with Variety, Eminem said at that time, he felt Academy Awards were not a right place for him to perform. If you remember, Em won Best Original Song at the 2003 Oscars, but the Detroit MC wasn't there to accept the award in person that year.

Following his performance, Eminem tweeted: "Look, if you had another shot, another opportunity..."

Eminem - real name Marshall Mathers - has since commented that it was not his idea to keep the performance secret, but when the plan was floated, he agreed that it would be "kinda dope" to keep it unannounced. The performance took everyone by surprise and a lot of praises were heaped on the musician for an extraordinary performance.

"And in addition, again at the moment, the youthful me did not actually really feel like a present like that will perceive me".

According to Variety, the Dolby Theater was put on lockdown during rehearsals, and if news of the appearance leaked to the media, he had the option to cancel. At the end of a montage celebrating iconic songs made famous by movies, clips of 8 Mile were projected on the screen as the instantly recognizable chug of "Lose Yourself" played along.

"I kinda figured maybe since I didn't get a chance to do it at the time, maybe it would be cool", Eminem explained.

Earlier in the week, we watched Eminem randomly perform "Lose Yourself" at the Oscars.

Eminem also shared that he never thought he would win an Oscar for that particular song and they performed the track at the Grammys, so he and his team thought that it would be unwise to take the stage at the Oscars back then.
