Eminem’s Second Chance at the Oscars

When ‘Lose Yourself’ was nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song in 2002, I was disappointment that he did not perform live at the ceremony. At the time, I was just starting to seriously write poetry in high school, and really appreciated his talent as a songwriter.

Almost 20 years later, he received a second chance, a surprise finish to a montage celebrating music in popular films. Eminem’s performance was intense and urgent, a reminder of why it is considered one of the greatest rap songs of all time.
