What a thorough tribute to David Bowie!
For those who missed the show, GaGa opened up the performance with a huge close-up of her face made up like the late icon who sadly passed away from cancer on January 10.
As L.G. crooned the beautiful lyrics to Space Oddity, Bowie’s iconic makeup flashed over the screen making her transformation into the departed rocker complete. If anything, the side effects of this performance were really neat and expressive, just like the musician himself!
Even though the beginning was a slow burn, it quickly escalated into a lively rendition of classics like Rebel Rebel and Fame. Donning flaming red hair fashioned like D.B.’s on the Aladdin Sane cover, the 29-year-old did her best to impersonate his unique essence.
While the show was entertaining, it didn’t fully encapsulate the special spirit of David — those are shoes that can never be filled.
