Lady Gaga to pay tribute to David Bowie during Grammy Awards
Remember that time Lady Gaga belted out a Sound of Music tribute medley at the Oscars and it was basically the greatest thing that ever happened?
Well, prepare yourselves, fans of music, art and fashion, because Mother Monster is set to honor the late, great David Bowie during the Grammy Awards later this month.
The Grammys announced Tuesday that Gaga will perform a “multisensory tribute” on Feb. 15, and while we don’t quite know what senses aside from sight and sound will be treated, we’re on pins and needles. What’s more: Nile Rodgers, who worked with Bowie on 1983's Let’s Dance, will be the musical director for Gaga’s tribute, according to the Associated Press.
“We had already booked Lady Gaga on this year’s show, but when David passed - almost in a single moment - we knew we had to change direction,” said executive producer of the Grammy Awards Ken Ehrlich. “We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honor David. She’s perfect for it. So I reached out to Nile and, before long, we were on our way to creating what we believe will not only make a great Grammy moment, but one befitting of David.”
It'll be a big night for the Golden Globe winner. She's nominated for Best Song Written For Visual Media for Til It Happens To You with Diane Warren. She's also performing the National Anthem before the Super Bowl on Sunday.
One burning question: What kind of crazy getup do you think Gaga will wear during the tribute?
