Eminem “Lose Yourself” Performance at the 2020 Oscars got a whole lot of people confused

Eminem was more or less a spectacle after the rapper came on stage at the Oscars to perform “Lose Yourself” and received a standing ovation from the crowd. Eminem Oscars 2020 performance video is been one of the most talked about clips for the most of last weekend.

The song “Lose Yourself,” from the movie “8 Mile,” won the 2003 Academy Award for best original song, but the rapper did not attend that year’s ceremony. He decided not to attend the ceremony in 2003, leaving his collaborator Luis Resto to accept the award — from Barbra Streisand, no less — in his place.

After his “Lose Yourself” performance, the Detroit rapper tweeted: “Look, if you had another shot, another opportunity… Thanks for having me @TheAcademy. Sorry it took me 18 years to get here.”

According to Billboard, the 8 Mile track sold 4,000 downloads in the U.S. following Sunday’s show, up 1,894% from the previous day. It is currently the most-downloaded song on the U.S. iTunes Store.

Lose Yourself” also won two GRAMMYs, Best Male Rap Solo Performance and Best Rap Song, at the 46th GRAMMY Awards, held in 2004; it was also nominated for Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best Song Written For A Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media that year.

The rapper has just released a new album titled Music To be Murdered By which is a follow-up to his previous project Kamikaze, which was released last August with no prior notice and featured Joyner Lucas, Royce 5’9″ and Jessie Reyez.
