Ryan Gosling’s Extravagant Performance of “I’m Just Ken” at the Academy Awards

The anticipation for Ryan Gosling’s performance of his Oscar-nominated song “I’m Just Ken” from the film “Barbie” during the Academy Awards was palpable, and he did not disappoint.

A Spectacular Display of Pink and Rhinestones

The stage was set ablaze with an explosion of pink and rhinestones as Gosling took center stage, donning Barbie-inspired sunglasses for the performance. Backed by a flurry of backup and restore dancers, including his “Barbie” costars Simu Liu and Ben Kingsley-Adair, who all portrayed different versions of Ken in the movie, the scene was a feast for the eyes.

Surprise Appearance by Guns N’ Roses Guitarist Slash

The excitement reached new heights when Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, who composed the guitar instrumentation on the song, made a surprise appearance on stage for an electrifying guitar solo.

Collaborative Moments with Co-stars

Gosling stepped out into the crowd during the performance and was greeted by America Ferrera, Margot Robbie, and director Greta Gerwig, all of whom helped him sing his song when he pointed the microphone towards them. As he passed by his “La La Land” co-star Emma Stone, he handed her the microphone to sing a line, and she did so impressively, word-for-word.

“Barbie” – A Box Office Success and Award Contender

“Barbie,” which was a box office hit last year, brought Gosling both critical acclaim and commercial success. He received a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his role as Ken, and the playful single became a chart-topper following its release.

A Triumphant Night for Gosling at the Oscars

“I’m Just Ken” was nominated for a Best Original Song Oscar, and Gosling was joined on stage by co-composer Mark Ronson. Although the song ultimately lost to Billie Eilish and Finneas’s original song “What Was I Made For,” it was still a memorable moment in Gosling’s career.

A Winning Performance for All

The crowd erupted in applause as the performance came to an end, leaving everyone feeling like they were part of a truly magical moment. Gosling’s captivating performance of “I’m Just Ken” was not only a testament to his versatility as an actor but also showcased his unexpected flair for music.
