Ryan Gosling's performance at the 2024 Academy Awards was more than "Kenough."

The Barbie star — who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor — took the Oscars stage to perform the movie's hit song "I'm Just Ken." Dressed in a rhinestone-studded pink suit, Gosling was joined by his fellow Ken costars — Simu Liu, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Ncuti Gatwa and Scott Evans — and the song's producer Mark Ronson.

But Gosling's song and dance didn't stop at the stage. He stepped out into the audience to sing along with director Greta Gerwig, costar America Ferrera and Barbie herself, Margot Robbie. For the grand finale, the Kens rocked out with Slash and Wolfgang Van Halen as the audience showed their love. (Emma Stone even popped a zipper on her dress!)

See all the best photos from Ryan Gosling's all-out, show-stopping number that reminded the world what it means to be "Just Ken."

In addition to the professional background dancers, Gosling had four of his actual costar Kens by his side. Simu Liu, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Ncuti Gatwa and Scott Evans all suited up to reprise their colorful roles for the performance.

Barbie director Greta Gerwig got to proclaim her Kenergy too when the actor stepped into the audience to sing with her, Robbie and America Ferrera. He even passed the microphone to non-cast member Emma Stone, with whom he costarred in the 2016 film La La Land.
