Oscars 2020: Eminem's Surprise Performance Sparks Spirited Expressions From Billie Eilish, Idina Menzel

During the 92nd Academy Awards, Eminem made a surprise appearance to perform "Lose Yourself" 18 years after he won an Oscar for the track. The performance surprised even the celebrities in the audience, and many of their reactions have quickly gone viral. Singer Idina Menzel initially looked a little confused, but got really into the song as Eminem went on. Billie Eilish, who was only a year old when the song was released, and brother Finneas O'Connell both looked a little bewildered.

Emimen won Best Original Song at the 75th Academy Awards in 2002, sharing the award with Jeff Bass and Luis Resto. It was featured in the semi-autobiographical movie, 8 Mile and quickly became Eminem's signature song.

Eminem later tweeted a video of Barbra Streisand presenting the award to Resto, since Eminem was not there.

"Look, if you had another shot, another opportunity... Thanks for having me [The Academy]," Eminem tweeted. "Sorry it took me 18 years to get here."

This was not the first time Eilish made a side-splitting reaction Sunday night. Earlier in the broadcast, Eilish gave a funny face when Saturday Night Live stars Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig performed a medley of popular songs from years before the 18-year-old was born.
