Lady Gaga Wins Best Original Song At The Oscars, Performs “Shallow” With Bradley Cooper And Reunites With Madonna

Last updated:

Oscar winner Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper sang cheek to cheek during their performance of “Shallow” at the Oscars.

Gaga, wearing Tiffany & Co.’s iconic, 128-carat yellow diamond, looked like a million bucks as she sang “Shallow” with Bradley Cooper at the Oscars Sunday night.

The two kept it as close to the original as possible. Cooper escorted Gaga up a set of stairs to the big stage where he nervously began, but eased into the Grammy Award winning song then passed it off to Gaga to do some of the heavy lifting. She played the piano before Cooper sat next to her to sing the rest of the tune. They shared an intimate look and received a standing ovation.

Later in the night, Gaga won Best Original Song for “Shallow!”

“I’ve worked hard for a long time. It’s not about winning,” she said. “What it’s about is not giving up. If you have a dream… fight for it!”

Gaga is now the first person in history to bring home a Golden Globe, BAFTA, Grammy, and an Academy Award in a single year!

Yes Gaga, yes ratings. The host-less Oscars were up 9% from last year’s show.
