Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s 2019 Oscars Performance Has People Feeling Some Type of Way
Just before she won her first Oscar for Best Original Song at the 91st Annual Academy Awards on Sunday, February 24, Lady Gaga took to the stage with her A Star Is Born costar Bradley Cooper to sing an intimate version of their duet “Shallow.”
How intimate? For fans watching at home (and we’re sure in the audience, too), it seemed as if Gaga and Cooper were the only two people in the world during the three-minute performance. With no formal introduction, the pair took the stage from their front-row seats while stagehands rolled in microphones and a piano.
The audience at the Dolby Theatre broke into cheers when Gaga began singing. And they audibly gasped when Cooper sat down next to her at the piano toward the end of the duet. The actors finished the song cheek-to-cheek — and the internet promptly erupted.
I’m still sitting here thinking about how close Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s faces were at that piano. 🤷🏻♀️

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga literally closed their eyes and touched faces while performing together at the Oscars… try and convince me that they aren’t in love

Cooper, of course, is happily coupled up with Irina Shayk, but that hasn’t stopped fans from shipping him and Gaga — especially now that Gaga has split from her fiancé Christian Carino.
Based on the Internet reaction I think legally speaking Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper have to get married and have a baby now or it’s a felony. #Oscars

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper had a moment on that stage singing Shallow. Here I am waiting on them to get married.

Bradley Cooper did not keep his eyes closed like Lady Gaga, he opened them and looked at his wife as if to say: we’ll talk about it in the car
