The Oscars 2020 has given us some treats already this year, and we've not even had a Moonlight mix up yet.

Following such incredible music acts as Janelle Monae in a giant floral cape giving us a rendition of 'Come Alive' with Academy Awards-relevant lyrics, a somewhat surprising performance from 8 Mile actor and rapper Eminem.

Taking to the stage to regale the audience with his 2002 sing 'Lose Yourself,' the rapper cut a casual appearance, in a black hoodie typical of his usual attire and sporting some shaggy, dark facial hair. Quite the departure from the bleach blond days of his early career.

As the 47-year-old musician launched into the rap, the Academy Awards camera panned round to the audience, capturing a wide display of different reactions from the seated A-list crowd.

Director Martin Scorsese looked a bit confused by the performance, while others, such as Star Wars actress Kelly Marie Tran were spurned into a full, enthusiastic sing-a-long.

Many considered the audience's attempts to rap in time with Eminem to be slightly awkward and Twitter had a lot to say about it:
