The moment you've been waiting for since you first watched Barbie in movie theaters has finally arrived: Ryan Gosling just performed "I'm Just Ken" at the Oscars with a live band and all his fellow Kens. The choreography? Unparalleled? The passion? The Slash cameo? Unlike anything we've ever seen? The Kenergy? Incredible, even if the word itself is tired.

If you didn't catch the performance live, fortunately, it's already on the web, so here you go:

Asking for me, a person who already saw it twice in the theaters and needs more.

This is the first (and will likely be the only) time Ryan has performed his Oscar-nominated song in front of a live audience, and people were obviously thrilled. Like, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski's reactions say it all.

"I'm Just Ken" topped charts following Barbie, and producer Mark Ronson said Ryan was floored by the response.

“He feels like someone who doesn’t get caught up in the hype from the little bit I now know about him from hanging,” Ronson told Rolling Stone. “I would just send him these stats sometimes. Not every stat that we share, like ‘We just hit 750, we’ve been played on this thing.’ But all the important ones, like ‘Dude, your song just charted on the Hot 100’ or ‘You’re the No. 3 song on the Billboard Rock Tracks.’ Just things that I thought he would dig. And he would be like ‘This is so surreal. I don’t even know what to tell you.'”

“He’s a real musician," Ronson added. "He loves music. I think he was really touched by that. And Slash played on it. So there’s been certain things where he’s been really excited about [it]."

Speaking of Slash, now seems like a good time to watch the BTS of "I'm Just Ken!"
