Elaborate plan to keep Eminem's Oscars performance under wraps

Eminem Oscars Performance Sparks Hilarious Audience Reactions

However, after he found out he won, Eminem realised the Oscars were "authentic". Now seeking a comeback following a series of poorly received albums, Eminem deigned to perform at the 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday even though he wasn't nominated for anything. The "Cleanin' Out My Closet" rapper won the award for "Lose Yourself" in 2003. It was presented to me that way and I said, "Oh that's kinda dope, to not even announce it'". He won his first Oscar as a producer of 12 Years a Slave in 2014, but this was his first win for a performance.

"Lose Yourself" became the first rap number to win the Oscar for Best Original Song back in 2003, but Eminem didn't attend that year because he didn't think he had a chance of winning. Fast forward 17 years and Slim Shady finally got his opportunity to do his thing at the famous award show.

He also said that it wasn't his idea to keep it a secret, but when he heard the idea, he loved it. The performance took everyone by surprise and a lot of praises were heaped on the musician for an extraordinary performance. "There are just these songs when you have an iconic performer opening with an anthem like that it just gets everybody pumped up", he said.

MSNBC's Chris Hayes spoke for many when he questioned why the Oscars brought back Eminem to perform an old song. "And also, back at that time, the younger me didn't really feel like a show like that would understand me", he told Variety on Monday about why he didn't show up to receive his award.

"I remember being kinda confused about why I was even up for one".

Instead of attending the night nearly two decades ago, Mathers said he went to bed early so he could get up in the morning and take his daughter Hailie to school. He went on to elucidate, "I believe it was both [the Oscars"] concept or Paul and [longtime publicist Dennis Dennehy's] concept earlier than they introduced it to me.
