Lady Gaga Nails Career-Spanning David Bowie Tribute at GRAMMYs 2016

FUSE TV - Lady Gaga Nails Career-Spanning David Bowie Tribute at GRAMMYs 2016

David Bowie's death shook the music industry and many were wondering how Lady Gaga and the GRAMMYs would pay tribute to the icon. Luckily, we're here to report that Gaga not only nailed it, but brought the audience to its feet with a showcase that touched on all of Bowie's classic tunes.

Opening with "Space Oddity," Gaga started the performance with a close-up as Bowie's profile was projected on hers, lightning bolt and all. Gaga stormed through a ton of Bowie classics: "Changes," "Ziggy Stardust" (played by Gaga at a keyboard), "Suffragette City," "Rebel Rebel," "Fashion," "Fame," "Under Pressure," "Let's Dance," and "Heroes."

Longtime Bowie collaborator/Chic icon Nile Rodgers was also on hand at the performance, playing alongside Gaga. Producer Raphael Saadiq was also playing guitar on stage.
