After months of back and forth, what many of us asked for is finally confirmed. Ryan Gosling will be on stage at the 2024 Oscars to perform “I’m Just Ken”tema musical de Barbie nominated for the golden statuette for best original song.

Traditionally, Oscar-nominated songs are performed during the gala, although this has not always been the case. Gosling himself refused to play “City of Stars”nominated and eventually won for original song, for the film La La Land. His place was taken by John Legend, who offered his version of the Oscar-winning song.

But this time, Gosling is determined to appear with all the “Kenergy” during the 96th edition of the award ceremony, Sunday March 10. Variety announced the news, although the Oscar Academy has not revealed Gosling's musical involvement.

Gosling is also nominated for an Oscar for best supporting actor for his performance as Ken in the film by co-writer and director, Greta Gerwig. This is his third Academy Award nomination. He was previously nominated for best actor in a leading role for La La Land (2016), y Half Nelson (2006).

The actor wasn't sure if his musical performance would be something that would come to fruition, telling the outlet last February that, “It may be too risky for me to do it. I don't know how that would work. But I'm open to it.”

Mark Ronson y Andrew Wyatt are the composers of “I’m Just Ken”. At the last Grammys, Ronson commented that if Gosling didn't want to perform the song, he wouldn't look for a replacement: “No. I think if Ryan doesn't do it then we won't do it.”

Barbie has two songs nominated in the original song category. In addition to “I’m Just Ken”is also nominated “What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish and Finneas.

The 2024 Oscar Awards will be held on Sunday, March 10, and will be broadcast live on ABC in the United States, and on TNT and the streamer MAX in Mexico and the rest of Latin America. Jimmy Kimmel is the host of the ceremony.
