“Lose Yourself,” from 8 Mile, in which Eminem semi-autobiographically starred as a Detroit battle rapper, won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2003.
Back then, Eminem was at the height of his early-dominance phase, and he opted not to show for the Oscars.
He still sells more reliably than almost anyone else in popular music, and his old music sounds as good as it ever did.
The performance was about the Oscars itself, and its ever-more-urgent need for conversation and excitement.
The Oscars therefore supplemented its soundtrack by enlisting the theoretically more current sounds of rap and R&B.
