Lady Gaga David Bowie Grammys Tribute Video: Watch Grammy Awards Performance!
Lady Gaga paid tribute to David Bowie with an unbelievable performance at Monday’s 2016 Grammys. Watch below.
As Gossip Cop has reported, Bowie died on January 10 at age 69 after secretly battling liver cancer. The music icon had released a new album, Blackstar, just two days before. His unexpected passing devastated many, including Gaga, who has cited Bowie as one of her musical inspirations.
It was announced on February 2 that Gaga would take the stage at the 58th annual Grammy Awards in his memory. Her powerful medley included such songs as “Space Oddity,” “Suffragette City,” “Rebel Rebel,” “Fashion,” “Fame,” “Let’s Dance,” and “Heroes.” She performed under the direction of Nile Rogers, who worked with Bowie for more than 30 years.
Incredibly, Bowie only won a Grammy once, in 1985, when he took home Best Short Form Video for “Jazzin’ For Blue Jean.” But his prolific career was recognized by the Recording Academy in 2006 when the legendary star was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
As for Gaga, she is a six-time Grammy winner, and this marked her fourth turn on the award show’s stage. In addition to paying tribute to Bowie, she also attended the ceremony as a nominee for Best Song Written For Visual Media. She and collaborator Dianne Warren received the nomination for “Til It Happens To You” from The Hunting Ground.
Gaga’s performance now comes just two days after she had a tattoo of Bowie’s faced inked on to her rib cage, and one week after she received rave reviews for singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Later this month, the pop star is expected to perform “Til It Happens To You” at the Oscars, where she and Warren are also nominated.
