Eminem played a surprise show in Michigan last weekend in front of 1,700 happy students at Michigan State University. Eminem, dressed in oversize white T-shirt and baggy jeans and wearing a yellow baseball cap, kicked off his 45 minute set with ‘Lose Yourself.’

 

His appearance had looked unlikely right up until the moment he stepped onstage. “Rumors have a way of taking on lives of their own,” a spokesperson for Universal Films told the crowd before the ‘8 Mile’ screening. “Eminem isn’t here.
