Watch Lady Gaga Perform at the Oscars With Sexual Assault Survivors

Lady Gaga was joined onstage Sunday night by sexual assault survivors during her performance of the the Oscar nominated song “Til It Happens to You.” She lost to Sam Smith’s song from Spectre soon after, who specifically said Gaga was “incredible” during his acceptance speech.


From the documentary The Hunting Ground, about the epidemic of sexual assault on college campuses, Lady Gaga sings: “It gets better, it gets better, in time.”

Some of the women who joined Lady Gaga’s performance include journalist Zerlina Maxwell and activist Wagatwe Wanjuki.

The performance was introduced by Vice President Joe Biden who used the appearance to promote the White House campaign “It’s On Us” to end sexual assault on college campus.
