Dressed as Ziggy Stardust, Gaga appeared on stage with a band to back her, featuring non other than Bowie’s friend and collaborator Nile Rodgers, bringing on a series of goosebumps with her tribute to the Star Man with a medley of classics featuring ‘Space Oddity’, ‘Heroes’, ‘Rebel Rebel’, ‘Fashion’, ‘Fame’ and more.
Among constant costume changes to honour Bowie’s far-out look and fashion, there was also a keyboard with robotic dancing legs, which is pretty insane.
In our opinion, as huge fans of Bowie, it was actually better than we expected and we’re pretty sure the performance will go down in history- we’re also pretty sure the Starman would have been proud.
Before Monday’s show, Gaga got a tattoo of Bowie’s face on her midsection.
Other than the Grammy’s, it’s been a rather huge month for her, having recently wowed viewers of the Super Bowl with a memorable opening performance of the US National Anthem. She’ll also perform at the Oscars at the end of Feb.
Another tribute which brought on a little goosebumps and a lot of nostalgia (he last covered the song in Moulin Rouge) was Ewan Magreggor performing “Heroes” in Las Vegas recently.
