The iconic rendition of “I’m Just Ken” occurred during yesterday evening’s glamorous awards event.

At last night’s Academy Awards ceremony, a truly unforgettable performance unfolded as Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash and Wolfgang Van Halen joined Hollywood star Ryan Gosling onstage for a rendition of “I’m Just Ken,” the actor’s iconic track from Greta Gerwig’s widely praised Barbie film.

This unique ensemble also featured the song’s creator and producer Mark Ronson, alongside Gosling’s co-‘Kens’ Simu Liu and Scott Evans, along with two other cast members from the Barbie movie: Kingsley Ben-Adir, who portrays the lead in this year’s “Bob Marley: One Love” film, and Ncuti Gatwa, known for his role in “Doctor Who.”

Reflecting on Gosling’s singing talent, Ronson remarked in an interview with Vulture last year, “I knew he was a good singer. But because I’d never made anything like this before, I hadn’t accounted for what he would actually bring to the performance emotionally. Then it kept getting a little more ridiculous in the best way. They started to rewrite the end of the movie, so in this big penultimate scene where, I don’t want to ruin too much about it, but Ken’s going into his destiny, he’s singing this song.”

At the recent Oscars, hosted at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, “I’m Just Ken” faced disappointment in the Best Original Song category, losing to another Barbie track, Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?”. Additionally, the late Robbie Robertson’s score for Martin Scorcese’s “Killer Of The Flower Moon” was surpassed by Ludwig Göransson’s composition for “Oppenheimer” in the Best Original Score category. The award for Best Animated Short Film went to Dave Mullins and Brad Booker’s “War Is Over! Inspired by the Music of John and Yoko.”

“Oppenheimer” emerged as the night’s major victor, securing seven wins out of the 13 categories it was nominated in, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor.

Meanwhile, Slash has unveiled the specifics of his upcoming solo album, “Orgy Of The Damned.” This album primarily consists of blues covers and will showcase collaborations with prominent artists such as Chris Stapleton, Beth Hart, Iggy Pop, Paul Rodgers, Gary Clark Jr., Billy F. Gibbons, Chris Robinson, Demi Lovato, and Dorothy. The debut single from the album, a rendition of Howlin’ Wolf’s timeless “Killing Floor,” boasts vocals by AC/DC’s Brian Johnson and harmonica by Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler.
