It was the performance the world was waiting for, and it didn’t disappoint.
“A Star Is Born” co-stars Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga took to the 2019 Oscars stage together to perform their award-winning duet “Shallow” together for the first time live.
Stepping right out of their seats at the Dolby Theatre, Cooper showed off his impressive pipes while sitting on a stool, while Gaga joined him on the piano.
They then showed off their chemistry, singing cheek-to-cheek in perfect harmony as the cameras gave audiences a 360-degree look at their performance.
Their intimate performance ended with the pair staring into each other’s eyes, and fans went wild on social media.
According to People, Cooper and Gaga hugged tightly backstage after their performance.
“Did I nail it?” asked Gaga. Gaga apparently looked at Cooper and said, “I’m so f***ing proud of you!”
Not long after they took the stage, the “Born This Way” songstress nabbed the award for Best Original Song alongside co-writers Andrew Wyatt, Anthony Rossomando and Mark Ronson, and took time to thank her co-star.
“There is not a single person on the planet that could sing this song but you,” she expessed to the 44-year-old actor.
Despite the romance rumours doing the rounds online, Gaga stayed quiet about the claims and instead thanked her “true friend” Cooper on Instagram.
