Watch Ryan Gosling Perform ‘I’m Just Ken’ at 2024 Oscars

    Ryan Gosling performed his Barbie song ‘I’m Just Ken’ at the 2024 Academy Awards on Sunday night. Wearing a hot pink suit, Gosling kicked off the performance sitting behind Margot Robbie in the audience before climbing to the stage to join Mark Ronson (on bass, Andrew Wyatt (on piano), and an entourage of Kens and backup dancers in matching cowboy hats. Slash and Wolfgang Van Halen, who both played on the studio version of the song, also came out on stage. Gosling returned to the crowd and encouraged guests including Barbie director Greta Gerwig, Robbie, America Ferrera, and Emma Stone to sing along. Watch it happen below.

    ‘I’m Just Ken’ was written and produced by Ronson and Wyatt. The song lost out to Billie Eilish and Finneas’ Barbie ballad ‘What Was I Made For?’ in the Best Original Song category.
