Eminem got mixed reviews for his performance of his old hit song, Lose Yourself, at the Oscars yesterday.

Although the rapper gave a stellar performance, there was some confusion as to how he's relevant to recent movies and why he chose to perform an 18-year-old song.

It was taken off the soundtrack of 8 Mile, in which Em played the lead.

Eminem never showed up to collect his award that year back in 2003, but the OG rapper more than made up for it this year.
