This deserved the standing ovation that it got.

Vice President Joe Biden came out to speak about the White House’s “It’s On Us” campaign, addressing sexual assault and to introduce Lady Gaga as she took to the piano to perform "Til It Happens To You" From 'The Hunting Ground'.

As she got to the last verse, the silhouettes of dozens of sexual-assault survivors stood behind her eventually joining her at the piano hand in hand. The most emotional and respectful performance of the night.
