A visceral and emotional performance of Lady Gaga's Oscar-nominated song "Hold My Hand" was given on stage during the Academy Awards on Sunday night.

The "Top Gun: Maverick" song received a nomination for best original music.

The song ultimately lost to "Naatu Naatu" from "RRR," but Gaga's performance stood out for its straightforward style.

For the performance, Gaga wore a dark T-shirt, trousers, and a casual outfit instead of her smokey and seductive red carpet getup.

When Gaga stepped up to sing at the end of the song, what had started out as a gentle and tender performance evolved into an intense and moving moment. There was a standing ovation for her.

2019 saw Gaga win best original song for the song "Shallow" from the movie "A Star Is Born," which she performed with Bradley Cooper.
