Lady Gaga Delivers Epic Grammy Tribute To David Bowie

Ziggy Stardust would have been proud.

Fresh off her Super Bowl triumph, Lady Gaga took to the Grammy stage tonight and delivered a stirring (and oh-so-Gaga) tribute to David Bowie.

She didn’t go for an imitation, but managed to evoke Bowie’s spirit, moving through a catalog of some of his greatest hits, from “Space Oddity” to “Let’s Dance,” with help from longtime Bowie collaborator Nile Rodgers.

It was an affecting and effective tribute to a true rock pioneer.
