Normally I don’t watch the Oscars to the full. I love to check out the Red Carpet – but that is about this. I don’t why I decided to watch the award ceremony and I’m so glad I did … because otherwise, I had missed the night’s highlight, Eminem’s performance of “Lose Yourself” from the movie “8 miles”. He got the whole Dolby Theatre to rock … and me too.
I’m not an Eminem fan … or I normally don’t listen to rap, but this has made me moved for the last 2 days … glad our house is well isolated, otherwise, my neighbours have gone made… listen to the same song for 4-6 hours per day, but on the other hand have I got some exercise. Great workout track.
What I understand was his performance at the award was a total surprise for the dress to kill audience.
Why he agreed to do the performance had to do with the fact that he never got to do the song live when it won. He also wasn’t in attendance in 2003 to accept the award, either. It became the first rap song to win the Best Original Song award.
‘Lose Yourself’ jumped nearly 2,000% in downloads following the Oscars performance and I’m one of them!! The song may have appeared on many more workout playlists today, as “Lose Yourself” sold 4,000 downloads on Sunday, jumping 1,894% over the previous day.
“Lose Yourself” granted Eminem his first of five No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2018, it received a diamond certification from the RIAA for U.S. sales exceeding 10 million.
It is nice to see that the normally slender and boyish-looking guy has put weight on and now look like a MAN (47 years)!! It a long time since a man has made me do so many moves … as he has during the last 2 days.
“Somewhere deep down there’s a decent man in me,
he just can’t be found.”
