What a special way to honor an icon.
Our hearts were broken last month by the news that David Bowie had passed away after a battle with cancer, and now it looks like the music industry is ready to say its final goodbye.
It was announced early Tuesday morning that Lady GaGa will be performing a special tribute to the late rocker at the Grammy Awards this year!

Executive producer Ken Ehrlich confirmed the news in a statement, saying:
"We had already booked Lady GaGa on this year's show, but when David passed — almost in a single moment — we knew we had to change direction. We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honor David. She's perfect for it."
We totally agree!
GaGa and Bowie have such similar aesthetics that it makes perfect sense for her to be the one to pay her respects.
Make sure to catch the David Bowie tribute when LL Cool J hosts the Grammy Awards Monday, February 15 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS!
