All you have to do is look at the diversity represented on the stage here tonight to witness the walls of division crumble under the weight of a connected world. Of late the controversy over extreme lyrics has bain heat seeking missile and important to remember the academy isn't here to commercial lies or sensor art. Here here to recognize those recordings that are notable noticeable and oftentimes controversial. People are mad. And people are talking and that's a good thing.

And accept the fact that musicians movie stars and athletes aren't perfect. They make mistakes and can't always be counted on to be role models. Art incites and angers it. Takes all its various incarnations to maintain the balance, vitality and autticity of the arts strike process. Let's not forget sometimes it's take tolerance. With a kind and inspired assistance of rock's most beloved artists, elton john john, here is eminem.
