Lady Gaga Brings Oscars Audience to Tears in ‘Sound of Music’ Performance Tribute
Being able to perform in a star-studded event like the 2015 Academy Awards is an honor beyond words. And to actually pull it off so well, like what Lady Gaga did in her performance for the Oscars, is enough to make anyone rise up to their feet in applause.
On Sunday, Feb. 22, 2015, Lady Gaga drew in some people in the red carpet as they took notice of her wearing what looked like gloves for washing dishes. Some immediately understood this as a way for her to hide her engagement ring. When asked if her fiancé Taylor Kinney is with her for the night, Gaga said that though he is supportive of her, he opted to watch her performance from the TV that night because he has work the next day.
But what really drew in the crowd was when Gaga finally stepped up onstage for her performance. She is set to perform a tribute to the 50th anniversary since the movie release of “The Sound of Music.” Gaga then proceeded to performing a medley of some of the musical’s well-known songs “The Sound of Music,” “My Favorite Things,” “Edelweiss” and “Climb Every Mountain.”
Amidst her amazing performance, many reported of seeing people in the audience tearing up to the song. And after Lady Gaga’s medley, the crowd was pleasantly surprised to see Julie Andrews herself step up onstage and congratulated Lady Gaga for a very heartwarming rendition of her legendary songs. Apparently, Andrews was up to present the award for Best Original Score, so she also took the chance to recall her times back when they made the musical decades ago while onstage.
Fans and even fellow celebrities like Steve Martin, Giuseppe Anthony and many more took to the social media like Twitter to congratulate Lady Gaga and praise her for her Oscars performance.
