The room was already electric when Vice President Joe Biden stepped onto the Oscars stage Sunday night and gave an impassioned speech about reducing sexual assault on college campuses. He then introduced Lady Gaga, who performed a rousing rendition of "Til It Happens to You," the Oscar-nominated song she and Diane Warren wrote about sexual assault on college campuses for the Kirby Dick documentary "The Hunting Ground."
And then it happened: A group of about 50 women and men entered the stage flanking Gaga at a white piano. With messages of "We believe you," "It's on us" and "Unbreakable" written on their exposed arms, survivors of sexual assault joined the songstress. They locked hands and rose them in triumph.
