Eminem sang “Lose Yourself” at the Oscars 2020… 17 years after the victory of the title-8 Mile

Eminem has created the surprise at the Oscars 2020 by performing their huge hit Lose Yourself on stage ! 17 years ago, its title, extract from the soundtrack to the film 8 Mile, which received the Oscar for Best original song, and then that Slim Shady had to be present to collect his prize, he finally answered absent. He made up for it this Sunday 9 February, better late than never.

Eminem ignites the Oscars 2020 🔥

While the films Parasite and 1917 and the actors/actresses, Joaquin Phoenix, Laura Dern, Renée Zellweger, or even Brad Pitt have been rewarded at the Oscars 2020, Eminem, him, has ignited the stage of the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. If the rapper came to interpret his song cult Lose Yourself, it is to be forgiven for his absence when the sound of the movie 8 Mile was awarded the prize for Best original song at the Oscars in 2003 : “If you have another chance, another opportunity… Sorry to have put 18 years (17 years, actually) to come here“, tweeted Slim Shady.

Sometimes it’s worth the wait because Eminen was offered to the guests, blown away by the show, a benefit pretty crazy, who would surely not have had the same experience 17 years ago. The passage of the performer of the Good Guy ended up with a standing-ovation… and by strong reactions on Twitter : some people are mostly making fun of the reaction of Martin Scorcese during the delivery of Eminem.

“I’ve always thought that rap was never treated justly”

It is in 2017 that Eminem has revealed why he hadn’t returned to the Oscars in 2003, in an interview with The Wrap : “I thought I had no chance, you see when I learned I was nominated I thought it was reserved for the actors. I didn’t really know what the Grammys or the Oscars wanted to say (…) I didn’t go to the ceremony. I thought that I only had a small chance of winning. I’ve always thought that rap was never treated justly. It is also for this reason that I had refused to go to the Grammys the first time that I had been invited.
