Lady Ga Ga pays homage to David Bowie at the Grammy’s

Lady Ga Ga

Lady Gaga offered a show-stopping Grammys tribute to music’s greatest innovator tonight. The pop star has long considered David Bowie one of her personal heroes and a major influence on her own career and aesthetic, which has always skewed toward the theatrical.

“When I fell in love with David Bowie, when I was living on the Lower East Side, I always felt that his glamor was something he was using to express a message to people that was very healing for their souls

For her homage, Gaga highlighted all the Bowie hits in fantastic, dramatic fashion: “Space Oddity”, “Changes”, “Ziggy Stardust”, “Suffragette City”, “Rebel Rebel”, “Fashion”, “Fame”, “Let’s Dance”, and “Heroes”. The well-choreographed performance saw Gaga dressed in various outfits inspired by Bowie’s own signature looks over the years; it also featured musical direction and guitar from Nile Rodgers of Chic.
