Prior to her spellbinding performance, Gaga offered some words of encouragement while sharing what the song meant to her.

"We all need each other. We need a lot of love to walk through this life. We need heroes sometimes," she said. "There's heroes all around us…. You might find that you can be your own hero, even if you feel broken inside."
