As Hollywood gears up for the 96th Academy Awards, anticipation reaches a crescendo as the industry's finest await the prestigious honors on March 10th.

Amidst the buzz surrounding this year's favorites, "Barbie" finds itself notably absent from major award lists despite previous acclaim, sparking speculation of a potential snub at the Oscars.

However, amidst this backdrop, "Barbie" enthusiasts have reason to rejoice as Ryan Gosling, the acclaimed actor from the film, is slated to perform at the Oscars. Gosling will take center stage to deliver a powerful rendition of "I'm Just Ken," the pop power ballad from the movie.

Joining Gosling in the star-studded lineup are renowned pop artists including Billie Eilish, Finneas O'Connell, Jon Batiste, Scott George, the Osage Singers, and Becky G, each set to captivate audiences with their nominated songs.

Gosling's performance comes as he contends for the Best Supporting Actor Award for his role in "Barbie." Despite playful hints suggesting otherwise, the actor's rendition of "I'm Just Ken" holds promise, offering fans a unique Oscars moment.

Penned by Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt, "I'm Just Ken" stands as a contender against "Barbie's" other tracks, notably Eilish and Finneas' soulful "What Was I Made For," which clinched a Grammy, solidifying its frontrunner status.

The upcoming Oscars ceremony promises to be a spectacle, with viewers worldwide tuning in to witness cinematic excellence unfold from the iconic Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The event will be broadcast live on ABC and across over 200 countries, with festivities kicking off at 7:00 pm ET.

Stay tuned as Hollywood's elite gather to celebrate the magic of cinema and witness Ryan Gosling's debut performance at the Oscars, adding a touch of excitement to an already star-studded affair.
