Simu Liu channeled his best Ryan Gosling during a concert in Los Angeles as he performed a live rendition of Barbie song “I’m Just Ken.”

“I want you to close your eyes, and I want you to put your hand on your heart, and I want you to repeat after me: I. Am. Kenough,” the actor said as he introduced the song during a concert at Hotel Café. He added, “Are you ready to feel the Kenergy with me tonight? Let’s do this! You are Kenough, you are Kenough.”

He later shared the song on social media, joking about how he stumbled over the lyrics. “[T]he most ken thing about this is that i forgot part of the words to ‘i’m just ken,’” the actor wrote on X. “What a great night!!!!”

Liu, who starred in Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, played a rival Ken to Gosling’s lead Ken in Greta Gerwig’s Barbie. The actor recently released a four-song EP, Anxious-Avoidant, which includes a collaboration with Joe Jonas.

“I’m Just Ken” was written by Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt and performed in the film by Gosling. It quickly became a breakout moment of the summer blockbuster. In September, Ronson said he found the response “so surreal.” Speaking during an event about the music of the hit movie, Ronson described how Gosling has felt about the chart-topping single.

“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 said. “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.’”

The song landed on Billboard Hot 100 in its first week at No. 87, marking Gosling’s first appearance on the Hot 100. Earlier this year, Warner Bros. shared a behind-the-scenes video clip from the making of the song, which shows the actor undergoing the most unserious transformation of his career while Gerwig watches along starry-eyed.

“You really fall in love with this hapless, but immediately sympathetic figure,” Ronson previously told Vanity Fair about Gosling’s Ken. “I instantly had this idea for this lyric: ‘I’m just Ken / Anywhere else I’d be a 10.’ It just seemed funny. It felt a little bit emo, like, this poor guy. He’s so hot, but can’t get the time of day.”
