Barbie star Ryan Gosling performed the film’s Academy Award-nominated song I’m Just Ken at the 2024 Oscars ceremony, and it was kenough to nab the title of "one of the most incredible Oscar musical performances".

Ryan wore a bedazzled pink suit and sunglasses as he gave the performance of a lifetime, singing I’m Just Ken from Greta Gerwig’s Mattel doll-inspired flick at the Awards.

The actor began the song wearing a cowboy hat, sitting behind his Barbie co-star Margot Robbie, singing into her ear as he got up from his seat. Margot could be seen unable to contain her giggles as Ryan ascended to the stage.

He then climbed up the steps of the stage to join Mark Ronson, who was jamming out on a bass guitar.

The Ken actor then took to the stage with 75 other Kens - including co-star Simu Liu - who eventually picked up Ryan and spun him around as big cardboard cutouts of Barbie were lifted in the air.

As if the performance couldn’t get any more headline-grabbing, acclaimed Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash appeared on stage and rocked out beside Gosling.

Ryan then could be seen strolling through the crowd and even passed the microphone to his La La Land co-star Emma Stone to sing a few lines of the hit song.

The star-studded spectacle concluded with fireworks in the background and a large standing ovation from the audience.
