WATCH: Eminem opened the MTV EMA with a powerful 'Walk On Water' performance

13 November 2017
Eminem just kicked off the 2017 MTV EMAs in the most epic way possible.

The 'Rap God' made a massive return on Friday with his brand new single 'Walk On Water', a surprise collaboration with the one and only Beyoncé.

The legendary pairing unsurprisingly results in the song being utterly amazing and Em just brought the emotional anthem to life with its first ever performance live in Wembley Arena.The rapper started the moving performance in the most British way possible… stepping up for a bit of karaoke in a traditional London pub.

He made the move to the insanely big EMA stage, where he was joined by Skylar Grey - who co-wrote the song - to sing Queen Bey's parts in her absence and she sounded beyond angelic.

'Walk On Water' is the first single from Eminem's upcoming album Revival, which is rumoured to drop this Friday (November 17) and could have many more A-list collaborations.

We're not sure how he can top Beyoncé but we're sure he'll have plenty tricks up his sleeve.

He promised he's "got one coming" in his acceptance speech for Best Hip Hop so fingers crossed it does arrive this Friday.

After this incredible performance, we can only hope that a tour is coming too!
