Further, the report also stated that Eminem has the option to cancel his performance if the news was leaked to the media. Eminem performed Lose Yourself, his first Oscar-winning hit from the year 2002 for Oscars 2020 this year.

Superstars like Brad Pitt, Billie Eilish, Leonardo Di Caprio and many more were seen enjoying Eminem’s Lose Yourself performance at the Oscars 2020. His performance garnered a standing ovation from the crowd towards the end. Eminem’s performance at the Oscars 2020 was sort of a do-over of his 2003 performance. As per reports, Eminem refused to perform a censored version of the song at Oscars 2003, as requested by the show producers because at that time he did not think he would win. Eminem did not even attend the 2003 Oscar awards.

The award was presented to Eminem and co-writers Luis Resto and Jeff Bass. Only Resto was present at the ceremony and accepted the award back in 2003. Eminem also tweeted about the Academy Awards and thanked the makers for the opportunity.
