Lose Yourself

Lose Yourself by Eminem was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, December 14, 2002 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This was featured in Eminem's first movie, 8 Mile. The movie is loosely based on Eminem's life; he grew up in a poor Detroit neighborhood and followed his dream of rap stardom. With "Lose Yourself," Eminem had to figure out a way to authentically express himself under the guise of a fictional character. Eminem performed this at the 2003 Grammy Awards with The Roots backing him up. He won the Best Rap Album award that year for The Eminem Show. It was the only rap or R&B award presented during the telecast, as the other awards in those categories were given out before they went on the air. This didn't go over well in the rap community, especially since the award for Best Comedy Album (won by Robin Williams) was given out during the show. This won an Oscar for Best Song From A Movie. This won a Grammy for Best Rap Song of 2003.
