Lady Gaga Gives Powerful Oscars Performance of 'Til It Happens to You'

Lady Gaga Oscars 2016

One year after melting faces with her Sound of Music tribute medley, Lady Gaga returned to the Oscars stage on Sunday for a haunting performance of “Til It Happens to You.”

The Oscar-nominated song, a collaborative effort between Gaga and acclaimed writer Diane Warren, already won Best Song in a Documentary at the 2015 Hollywood Music in Media Awards and was nominated for a Grammy earlier this month. It was written for the film The Hunting Game.

In the final moments of Gaga’s performance, the singer was joined on stage by survivors, both men and women, of sexual assault:

Needless to say, the audience reaction shots — including those of Rachel McAdams and Kate Winslet — were full of tears:

Gaga’s performance at the Oscars was the latest in a string of memorable live TV moments for the artist formerly known as Stefani Germanotta; She blew our minds with her visually striking David Bowie tribute at the Grammys, stole our hearts with her rendition of the National Anthem before Super Bowl 50, and earned our applause with her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes.
