So Eminem performed “Lose Yourself” at the 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday night.
No one expected it because it was never announced and he had nothing to do with any nominated movie!
So… Why was he there?
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.
