LADY GAG’S TRIBUTE TO DAVID BOWIE
I finally watched the Grammy’s which I had DVR’d. I think it was an amazing show in so many ways. Many different genres were represented. I saw people that I didn’t even know.
Kinda sad to sad that most of those mentioned in the “In Memoriam” section I knew
(that tells me a lot!)
Glad to see new talent recognized.
One of the performances that impressed me was Lady Gaga’s tribut to David Bowie.
Indeed, who else could have channeled this awesome talent lost early this year?
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Lady Gaga’s David Bowie Tribute at the Grammy’s Was Fabulously, Perfectly Weird
Could anyone else have paid homage to David Bowie?
Channeling Ziggy Stardust, Lady Gaga saluted the icon at the Grammy’s the only way that fit: with unapologetic weirdness and glee.
How can there be a successor to someone so singular, so unique, so impossible to pinpoint and unabashedly weird – all the while so undeniably genius.
Lady Gaga may not be the next David Bowie.
But if anyone can approximate the mood, the message, the spirit, and the stirring camp as the recently deceased icon, it’s the human and the alien in our Mother Monster, Lady Gaga.

It’s a testament to how fiercely we possess our affection for David Bowie that Gaga’s big, ambitious tribute at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards, February 15, was met with such polarizing reaction on Twitter. For everyone 140-character fawning over Gaga’s tenacity and extraterrestrial talent in the loving salute, others found her drag and kitsch to border on blasphemous.
Of course, poking and prodding outrage and testing our tolerance for performance was a habit of Bowie’s. It’s fitting that such a raucous homage to his legacy at the Grammy Awards by the pop star with the most experience in the realm of instigating and provoking would elicit the same kind of reaction.
Let’s be clear, though. No one but Lady Gaga could have performed this tribute.
For sheer significance, there is no other artist today who engages with such glee the orchestration of new personas and the reinvention of identity.
She started with a stirring, technically precise few bars of “Space Oddity,” lighting effects washing some of the most iconic Bowie images over her face.
She then sped through a dizzying medley of Bowie’s hits. “Changes,” “Ziggy Stardust,” “Suffragette City,” “Let’s Dance,” “Heroes,” and more: each one stoking an eruption of giddy applause from the audience, each one fading to the next hit all-too-quickly – Gaga barely had time to get into the groove before it was on to the next.
She peacocked and pranced and strutted and boogied. Her vocals were flawless. Her wardrobe channeled Ziggy Stardust, the performance styled to the Aladdin Sane album. There were robotic legs, a dancing mechanical keyboard, and psychedelic lights.
And there was Bowie.
There was Bowie’s joy. His exuberant weirdness. There was scale and spectrum and ambition, all of it at once scattershot and meticulous.
It was queer and cheesy and 100 percent committed by Gaga.
