Grammys 2019: Watch Lady Gaga’s Triumphant, Glam-Rock ‘Shallow’ Performance
Written by wolverat on February 10, 2019
Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson stole the Grammy Awards show with a rocked-up performance of their A Star Is Born breakout hit “Shallow.” The track was up for four awards at tonight’s ceremony, including nods in Song of the Year and Record of the Year.
Gaga ditched her A Star Is Born persona for her more rock star-esque, future-pop aesthetic. In a bedazzled jumpsuit, she slinked across the stage like Ziggy Stardust-era David Bowie. With her co-star Bradley Cooper absent, she sang both starts and vamped up the mid-tempo power ballad as Ronson strummed the acoustic guitar beside her and alongside a full rock band.

Prior to the Grammys, “Shallow” took home Best Original Song at the Golden Globes. It is also up for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards, where Gaga is also a top contender for Best Actress. She will perform the song at the Oscars with co-star and director Bradley Cooper. Alongside their four nominations for “Shallow,” Ronson and Gaga are also up for Best Pop Solo Performance for the stripped down version of the Joanne title track.
Gaga has won six Grammy Awards throughout her career, with the most recent being in 2015 for her collaborative album with Tony Bennett, Cheek to Cheek. Ronson has won five awards throughout his career, including two Record of the Year nominations for Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab” and the Bruno Mars collaboration “Uptown Funk.”
