Chrissy Metz made her Oscars debut on Sunday night (Feb. 9) in breathtaking fashion, performing best original song nominee "I'm Standing With You" from the actress' 2019 drama Breakthrough.
Metz belted out the song from the center of the stage in a floor-length black dress with a glittering cape, accompanied by a chorus who stood on a diagonal platform behind her. After finishing her final note, Metz made sure to cap off her first Oscars appearance in a touching way: "I love you mom," she said.
The camera then panned over to Diane Warren, who wrote the song (earning her 11th Academy Award nomination) and was clearly very approving of Metz's moving performance. Warren told E! News before the show that she was just as stunned by Metz's delivery upon hearing her on the track.
