Ryan Gosling is about to show everyone how it's done after it has been claimed that he will be performing ‘I’m Just Ken’ at the Oscars.

Now, this year's Oscars Awards is already set to be one of the biggest nights in the entertainment calendar, but it might have just got that little bit better after it was confirmed that Ryan Gosling, one of the leading stars in Greta Gerwig's Barbie, will be performing his iconic song from the movie.

While the Academy refused to give us any spoilers - boo! - Variety reported that insiders with knowledge of the line-up confirmed that the 43-year-old, who has been nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the prestigious event, will be singing 'I'm Just Ken' on March 10.

We're really hoping it's true!

It comes after Gosling revealed that he had not yet been asked to perform at the Oscars during his cover story with the outlet last month.

"It might be too much of a risk to have me do it," he said. "I don’t know how that would work. But I’m open to it."

Songwriter and producer Mark Ronson, who wrote the song along with Andrew Wyatt, stated that he would love to see Gosling, and Gosling only, perform the song at the Oscars.

"...I think if Ryan doesn’t do it then we’re not doing it," he added when discussing the prospect of someone else taking the actor's place.

'I'm Just Ken' has previously been honored with a Critics Choice Award and is now up for an Oscar nomination, competing for the award alongside fellow Barbie track 'What Was I Made For?' by Billie Eilish and Finneas.

After clinching the victory back in January, Ronson and Wyatt went on stage to accept the trophy, with Ronson thanking Gosling for his delivery of the tune in the award-winning movie.

"This is as much your award as ours," he said. "You made the audience fall in love with this song with your matchless performance."

Ronson also thanked director Greta Gerwig, saying: "The fact that you carved out 11 minutes for this prog-rock, power ballad, dream ballet, shred-fest so the boys could cry and hold hands a little too, we’re really forever in your debt for that."
