Lady Gaga gave a raw performance at the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday night.
The Poker Face hitmaker, 36, stripped off the stunning makeup she donned earlier on the Oscars red carpet and went for a bare-faced look. She also changed from her glamorous black Versace gown into a simple black t-shirt and ripped jeans.
The signer gave an emotional rendition of her Oscar-nominated song Hold My Hand from the Top Gun: Maverick soundtrack.
Before flexing her vocals the star gave a short introduction, telling the audience of the song: ‘It’s deeply personal for me and I think that we all need each other, we need a lot of love to walk through this life.’
‘And we all need a hero sometimes, there’s heroes all around us. In unassuming places, but you might find that you can be your own hero, even if you feel broken inside,’ she poignantly added.
