Oscars 2020: Eminem performs surprise rendition of Lose Yourself ahead of Best Original Song Oscar
Rapper’s appearance comes after the release of his new album, ‘Music to Murdered By’
Eminem made a surprise appearance at the Oscars to perform his award-winning track "Lose Yourself", from the film 8 Mile.
The rapper performed with a backing band to precede the announcement for Best Original Song – an award he won in 2003.
His appearance comes after the release of his surprise album Music to Be Murdered By. He was announced by Hamilton star Anthony Ramos.
At one stage, the camera cut to The Irishman director Martin Scorsese, who did not seem to be enjoying the performance.
Music to Be Murdered By received mixed reviews from critics. The Independent gave the album two stars and criticised Eminem for being "incapable of moving on".
South Korean black comedy Parasite was the evening’s biggest winner, making history by becoming the first ever foreign language film to win Best Picture.
Other winners at the 2020 ceremony included Laura Dern, who took home the prize for Best Supporting Actress.
Meanwhile, Olivia Colman had the audience in stitches before presenting Phoenix with his award.
