People Are Loving Ryan Gosling's "I'm Just Ken" Performance At The 2024 Oscars

People Are Loving Ryan Gosling's "I'm Just Ken" Performance At The 2024 Oscars

The 2024 Academy Awards was a night of heartfelt speeches, much-deserved wins, and glamorous celebrities — but, in my opinion, only one moment takes the cake for best of show.

Ryan Gosling performed "I'm Just Ken," one of the runaway hits from Barbie, with Mark Ronson, and it was unbelievable.

I'm not alone when I say I was hoping, waiting, and wishing for Ryan to perform the song at awards shows earlier in the year, and now my wildest dreams have come true.

Mark and company managed to get Ryan (and all the other Kens from the film) to perform on the Oscars stage, and people absolutely lost it.

All that hard work in the Mickey Mouse Club truly paid off for Ryan.

When legendary guitarist Slash appeared, it was obvious that Ryan meant business with this performance.

Mark, Ryan, and all the Kens absolutely killed it.
