Eminem Performs “Lose Yourself” In Surprise Oscar Appearance

Eminem shocked Oscar viewers after taking the stage to perform “Lose Yourself” -- 17 years after the classic track won Best Original Song.

Eminem had a rare opportunity to perform in front of Hollywood’s elite after his 8 Mile track “Lose Yourself” won Best Original Song at the 2003 Academy Awards. The emcee instead chose to stay home.

17 years later, the Detroit legend received one more shot.

Eminem was a surprise guest during Sunday night’s Oscar ceremony, performing his 2002 hit in front of a mostly shell-shocked crowd.

Reactions to the unannounced performance ranged from excitement:

to stunned:

To painfully unamused:

The concert ended up revitalizing “Lose Yourself”, vaulting the song up to No. 1 on the U.S. iTunes sales chart.

The appearance was also a reunion for two longtime friends and collaborators, Marshall Mathers and Elton John. The duo posed backstage for a photo after Elton’s very own Oscar win for his song “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” from the movie Rocketman.

Eminem is three weeks removed from the surprise drop of his 11th studio album, Music To Be Murdered By.
