Lady Gaga Set to Perform at 2015 Oscars
Good news Little Monsters! If you were planning on vetoing the 2015 Oscars for whatever reason (like the fact that One Direction's concert film Where We Are was totally snubbed), you should probably rethink your stance. According to Deadline, Lady Gaga is set to perform a special tribute at the ceremony. Show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron made the announcement earlier today (Feb. 12), saying in a statement (quote via Deadline), "Lady Gaga is a once-in-a-lifetime artist whose musical evolution keeps growing. We are proud to have her perform on the Oscars for the very first time.”
Gaga also took to Instagram to reveal the news to fans, posting a short video announcing her performance. Unfortunately, there is super limited information available on Gaga's upcoming performance. We have no clue as to what song she'll be performing or even what the tribute entails, who it'll be dedicated to or how long it'll even be. What we do know is that the addition of Gaga's performance is a pretty smart move from the Academy, as it's bound to usher in a wave of younger viewers for what is, ultimately, a show typically geared toward an older crowd.
Any idea as to what might be in store for us? Considering the fact that Lady Gaga is one of the few artists who always manages to do something we never see coming, we're just gonna wait this one out.
