Watch Lady Gaga Perform ‘Hold My Hand’ at 2023 Oscars

    Lady Gaga took the stage at the 95th Academy Awards last night, performing a stripped-down rendition of her Top Gun: Maverick song ‘Hold My Hand’. Watch it below.

    “I wrote this song with my friend BloodPop for the film Top Gun: Maverick in my studio basement,” Lady Gaga said in a speech prior to her performance. “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.”

    ‘Hold My Hand’ was nominated for Best Original Song this year, but lost to RRR‘s ‘Naatu Naatu’ by Rahul Sipligunj, Kaala Bhairava, M.M. Keeravani.
