Eminem surprises the world by performing 'Lose Yourself' at the Oscars

Cast your mind back 17 years - it's 2003, and 'that rapper your parents told you not to listen to' is receiving the Academy Award for Best Original Song for that track that's in 'that movie your parents also wouldn't let you watch'.

Rapper Eminem - real name Marshall Mathers - shocked the world in 2003 by winning an Oscar for his track 'Lose Yourself', making it the first hip hop song ever to receive the prestigious award. The song featured in the 2002 motion picture 8 Mile.

Now, nearly two decades later, Eminem has shocked the world once more, as he took to the stage to perform the track once more.

Check out the moment below. Everybody sing it with me: "His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy..."

Not gonna lie, my face looked a lot like Billie Eilish's when I first saw Eminem hit the stage...

And, naturally, Twitter absolutely lost it:

8 Mile told the story of an aspiring rapper with a complicated life, as he battled to break through the physical and psychological barrier of the '8 Mile Road' - a highway between the predominantly black city of Detroit and the largely white suburban communities to the north.

Relive the moment 'Lose Yourself' won at the 2003 Academy Awards below:

'Lose Yourself' also won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Solo Performance.
