Despite an awesome lineup featuring Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Adam Levine, and more, it was pop megastar Lady Gaga who was billed as the night’s “must see” musical performer at the 87th annual Academy Awards. Now, after lending an absolutely jaw-dropping performance of the Julie Andrews-famed ‘The Sound of Music’ from the classic movie of its namesake, we can see why.

Setting Twitter ablaze as we speak, the emotional performance is quickly being deemed by critics one of the award show’s most memorable…ever!  Tuck in below to let us know if you agree:

    I thoroughly enjoyed that Gaga, that was fantastic. Gurl you can sing, that vocal was really good.

  2. SCHEISSETHRONED February 22, 2015

    Flawless

  3. General February 22, 2015

    Lady Gaga>>>Madonna
    I can see why Madonna is so threatened by Gaga. Gaga’s talents trumps Madonna’s in EVERY WAY.

    • Sean February 22, 2015

      She is talented but thus BS that a better voice = a better artist is not true. GaGa still walks on a path Madonna paved for her. And plenty of others like Bey, Christina etc can blow GaGa away vocally

      • Stephy. February 22, 2015

        Lady Gaga would BLOW SCREAMtina off the stage.

      • General February 22, 2015

        Path or no path, Gaga is way more talented than Madonna.

      • seun February 22, 2015

        Beyonce and Madonna? Nah Nah! Christina and Gaga are definitely at par.

      • Kitty Puurrzz February 23, 2015

        Xtina will make Gaga look like a CHILD when it comes to vocals. Don’t even mention Xtina in the sane sentence with her vocally. Girl how dare you?

    • madbrax February 22, 2015

      the funny thing is that Madonna has never been threatened by her, it’s Gaga who is continuously talking s*** and making up the feud for people to feel sorry for her. Madonna made one comment about her in 2012 that she felt it reductive that Gaga ripped off her song and then continuously lied about it.

    • Karaoke February 23, 2015

      Lady Gaga raided through Madonna’s work, the only way I guess she would feel threatened is having a stalker and one that has no respect for her work and labor. Otherwise their work is very different.

      Lady Gaga is more an Elton John than a Madonna. Madonna comes from dance, which Lady Gaga obviously doesn’t.

      Madonna’s songs are superior, her shows are superior, she is a MUCH better live performer physically, her sense of conducting a stage is far superior and other things I’m sure, I’d much rather take that over a karaoke act who hits notes more precisely but with not one iota of creativity.

      • Sean February 23, 2015

        Madonna in 1990 was all of these things. Not sure about now.

        The Blond Ambition Tour was incredible. Now she’s lacking the spirit she had that made her so undeniable.

  4. RCi February 22, 2015

    Great vocal bad wig…

  5. Stephy. February 22, 2015

    That was simply the BEST I’ve EVER herd Miss Gaga. She sounded incredible! Controlled & pitch perfect. Gaga is NOT just a pop singer, but a full blown VOCALIST! That was beautiful. I was shocked that was her singing tbh.

    • Karaoke February 23, 2015

      A karaoke singer. I would think it’s easy to imitate a song and all that goes with it when you have enough time to practice.

      • Toohotfortv February 23, 2015

        I’d like to see you try, sweetheart.

  6. LB February 22, 2015

    Until Gags has an album as amazing as Ray of light, you can miss me with the whole Gags >> Madonna, not until that happens, is that ever going to be possible.

    So sit and enjoy this moment ok

    • General February 22, 2015

      Her having a Ray of light type album is irrelevant, her talent speaks for itself. Call me when Madonna can stand there and pull off such a performance, enough said.
      Talent wise
      Gaga>>>> Madonna
      Thanks.

      • LB February 23, 2015

        Sorry honey, the music is what speaks volumes and Madonna proved herself with Ray of Light.

        So once again, until Gaga can produce an album as AMAZING as Ray of Light, she can occupy that seat over there to the left.

      • General February 23, 2015

        Are you going to answer thus question though? Who is more talented?

      • General February 23, 2015

        This

      • LB February 23, 2015

        Madonna, because she can write a song from start to finish, and play multiple instruments.

      • General February 23, 2015

        Lol, and Gaga can’t do the same, Girl bye lol

      • LB February 23, 2015

        Gags can’t do it at the level Madonna can. The only thing she has over Madonna is being a good singer

      • General February 23, 2015

        You Know, everyone’s view on talent is either subjective, or objective, i’ll leave it at that.

      • s*** February 23, 2015

        Call us when Lady Gaga has an album that doesn’t sound like Euro Ibiza s*** or Carpetstore Jazz.

      • madbrax February 23, 2015

        Academy Awards performance of Sooner or later. enough said, bye b****

      • Ape imitate February 23, 2015

        Madonna’s Oscar performance was more interesting. Lady Gaga has no flair, hitting notes better is not the whole of a performance.

      • Toohotfortv February 23, 2015

        I would have to agree. The thing is, it wasn’t until a few albums in that madge actually began to play with art and really sell and solidify a message. The ray of light album was relatively late in her career. Give it time. I’m sure with the chops and actual creative mind that gaga has… she will come up with something at some point that will blow us away. Right now, its obvious that she’s focusing more on the idea of her craft and being respected more than her fashion antics and, I for one, think its a genius move. I actually think she shouldve gone this route for the artpop era… something a little more paired back but it looks like she learned her lesson and now she realizes that the audience needs balance. So, with all that said, I’m excited to see/hear what she does next.

    • Sean February 23, 2015

      Ray isn’t even that great. Just another good but over-hyped album.

  7. Rayvone February 22, 2015

    Words can’t explain how ugly this wig is but go the f*** off ma.. from the grammys to the stevie wonder tribute to this, gaga has been working ha ass off trying to win back public appeal and I respect her for that

  8. Stephy. February 22, 2015

    Madonna can’t sing nor could she ever. The only thing she has over Gaga is better music. That’s it.

    • LB February 22, 2015

      Ray of light>>>>any Gags album before, present and after….DEAL

      • General February 22, 2015

        That’s fine, but your avoiding what matters, TALENT. Answer this LB, who’s more talented?

      • General February 22, 2015

        *You’re

      • Stephy. February 23, 2015

        The Mis-Education Of Lauryn Hill >>> Any Madonna album… So, what’s your point? I’m talking about RAW LIVE VOCAL Talent. Which Madonna NEVER has possessed.

      • LB February 23, 2015

        I care about the music because talent is about how you use it.

        Janet Jackson is no Mariah, but she knew where her voice was the strongest and used it there. That is talent, it is subjective, music is less subjective.

        Amazing music is amazing music and it’s what people respond to. And music wise, Madonna trumps any card Gags brings to the table.

        ok I agree with you on The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

      • Stephy. February 23, 2015

        Madonna doesn’t trump Gaga in NOTHING as a LIVE performer. But, musically speaking… Madonna >>>>

      • Royalkev February 23, 2015

        People really make this ROL album more than what it is these days.

        True Blue >>>> ROL
        Like A Prayer >>> ROL

        Sometimes the more commercial music is better than the “underrated gem”.

        Live To Tell >>>> anything on ROL

    • Cover Songs February 23, 2015

      The only thing Lady Gaga has is partially better technicality. Her own songs are mediocre as heck. That’s probably why all she’s doing is Covers. lol

  9. BeyIsKing February 22, 2015

    She did that! Simply beautiful

  10. Cover Songs February 22, 2015

    Karaoke. Does she do anything Original ?

    • seun February 23, 2015

      You need to get your ears checked hon.

      • Cover Songs February 23, 2015

        Um, hello ? The song IS a cover. Are you stupid ? She seems to just be doing covers and copying the original singers.

        What has that got to do with getting ones ears checked ?

    • Adrian February 23, 2015

      I disagree. Everybody does covers. It’s not necessarily a bad thing. It was the 50th anniversary of The Sound Of Music and it was only a tribute. Don’t know why people take this so seriously and so what if she seems karaoke. We all have imitated or taking inspiration off from somewhere and it’s sad to see there’s no way in her winning people like you over. She’s gotten this far from doing original music that sold millions and now she’s venturing off to other things in music and is doing well whether that seems bad to you or not cause its what is making her happy and it’s good to see her really show her talent vocally cause no one took her seriously as an artist when she was LADY GAGA so here you go complaining.

  11. Madison February 22, 2015

    when will riri and katy be able to blow a pipe like this bish on stage? Not a fan but Gaga totally nailed it. I respect her talent, amazing vocal. She’s so phucking versatile.

    • seun February 23, 2015

      True! Gaga is versatile.Thats the word.I have always been a fan of hers. Although i’m a rih fan as well.

      • Ape imitate February 23, 2015

        She is not versatile, none of her work is versatile.

    • Ape imitate February 23, 2015

      Versatile would not constantly be doing covers and none of her own work is versatile.

  12. TheElusiveLamb February 23, 2015

    She really is beyond a pop singer. Some of those notes sounded as if she was singing opera. Literally her best performance to date. Maybe Gaga should try some Sam Smith/Adele/Amy Winehouse material for this era. This was simply beautiful.

    • Ape imitate February 23, 2015

      Why not something original ?

  13. Cover Songs February 23, 2015

    All she does is cover songs and copy their voices.

  14. Rihboy February 23, 2015

    That’s was really good. I hope this era she brings it. I’m still a partial fan of hers; however if she comes back with that outlandish s*** we are done. Lastly, please stop comparing or putting her against Madonna. She has not, could not, and will not amount to how much Madonna has done. I believe that gags sings better, but Madonna is legend and has nothing to prove. She had nothing to prove 30 years ago!! Real talk.

    • Rihboy February 23, 2015

      That*

  15. Stephy. February 23, 2015

    “She had nothing to prove 30 years ago!!”

    She had EVERYTHING to prove 30 years ago… Anyways, Madonna is a LEGEND & the most successful FEMALE artist of ALL time. But, fact still remains she cannot & nor could she EVER sing. Point Blank Period.

    • General February 23, 2015

      Exactly.

    • Rihboy February 23, 2015

      Like I said… Nothing to prove. Regardless. I don’t think anyone said she had a stellar voice. Who cares. It’s what you bring to the table to sell something. Gags has been at a block for a while. Sooo boop

    • Ape imitate February 23, 2015

      She, Madonna, has a lovelier voice, just not that technical.

  16. Cough Cough February 23, 2015

    She is one of today’s best, hands down. As far as popular music she is the most talented. She plays multiple instruments, can saaaaaang (variety of genres), writes and produces. Not my fav artist but she is just so talented!

    • Ape imitate February 23, 2015

      Her popular music is s***. Her instrument playing is mediocre. Her writing is awful.

  17. metzo February 23, 2015

    This is why I always say Gaga and Bey> the rest of the mainstream chicks! Those opra-esque vocals salyed! http://youtu.be/zaehVlfp7Uw

    • Iggz Szn February 23, 2015

      Wow! I never knew Beyonce could sing like that?! Why does she never showcase those vocals on her albums n stuff? I used to think that her voice was annoying due to how high it was especially during DIL era but she sounds pretty good here

      • metzo February 23, 2015

        Well… She’s Beyonce. And her last name is ‘multi-faceted’. Nuff said

  18. KeKe February 23, 2015

    Damn those vocals!

  19. Slay_Hive February 23, 2015

    She has really shocked me lately with how versatile and talented she really is! There’s actually a lot more to her than those tacky costumes, gimmicks and wigs. Hopefully she brings it with this next album! She has no choice.

    • Ape imitate February 23, 2015

      She is not versatile.

  20. KeKe February 23, 2015

    Sam post John legend and Common’s acceptance speech please!

  21. OMG Logic!!! February 23, 2015

    I was thoroughly impressed. Gaga needs to drop all the BS gimmicks and release albums full of this level of vocal talent.

    • Ape imitate February 23, 2015

      She needs to do ANOTHER cover album lol

  22. MusicMatters201 February 23, 2015

    I don’t like her singing serious genres of music. She sounded great although. I mean maybe she should have a baby and go to Broadway before trying to make a Pop comeback. Maybe then if she ditches the costumes people will chuck it up to her being a mother and more mature. Like I said she sounded great but its just NOT my cup of tea from her. Give me “Just Dance” and “Eh Eh” ‘s or go away! #shrug

  23. LB February 23, 2015

    @Stephy

    Gags is not the first singer who can put on a fantastic vocal and most definitely won’t be the last. As X Factor has proven, vocalists are a dime a dozen, it is what you do with that ability that counts.

    Madonna has used her limited range to make amazing music, ala Ray of light, very few albums can compare to that masterpiece.

    Gags is an amazing singer, more than a popstar but come on now, she doesn’t even slay Leona Lewis on the mic. Sit.

    • Iggz Szn February 23, 2015

      She sure is better than Madonna.

      • Ape imitate February 23, 2015

        She hits some notes more accurately and deeper. She sure is better if you’re into Mall Rock and pretentiousness.

  24. Kim February 23, 2015

    Whitney Houston could deliver vocals from heaven but doesn’t mean she was a better artist than John Lennon. There’s more to music and artistry than singing another persons sons or imitating another artists style very well. And well indeed from Stephanie this evening. Quit comparing her to Madonna…GaGa is talented but not close to being a legend anytime soon

    • musicMatters101 February 23, 2015

      FACT!

    • metzo February 23, 2015

      You are comparing a female vocalist to a Male rock star. What kinda mess.
      Btw, Having vocal talents, hell having any talent that you can showcase in any form is part of Artistry. And vocal talent is also part of Music. You can’t have a brilliantly written song and give it to someone who can Sing for their dear life or can’t bring the song to life because of poor vocals. Whitney is just as incredible of an artist as John Lennon, in her own way.

      • Royalkev February 23, 2015

        Preach Metzo, preach!!!

      • Kim February 23, 2015

        Said no critic ever

  25. Stephy. February 23, 2015

    @LovelyBird

    Baby, I was strictly talking about RAW LIVE TALENT. When I watch Gaga LIVE & then watch Madonna (in her prime) LIVE. Lady Gaga wins at everything RAW talent. Madonna wins at visuals, production & maybe charisma. But, you have to be blind & deaf… To not see/hear that Gaga sings, dances & overall has more RAW talent as a LIVE performer. But, as I stated before. Madonna wins as a STUDIO artist for sure. I agree, Madonna has WAY better music than Gaga.

    • metzo February 23, 2015

      Some people will be remembered for their music, some people will be remembered for their raw talent. There’s no question that Gaga is overall more talented than Madonna.

      • Ape imitate February 23, 2015

        Definately not. Not writing any good songs is not a raw talent. If you think the shoddy s*** like The Fame or BTW is good you need to get out more.

    • Ape imitate February 23, 2015

      No. Madonna is a much better performer. Lady Gah Ga’s Mall Rock Rave was shoddy s*** and amateur comedy.

  26. Musika February 23, 2015

    Gaga is slowly coming back to the limelight again this year. Hope she slays 2015~!

  27. Rosie February 23, 2015

    Good performance, second best of the night after Glory (which made the audience tear up).
    He really needs to just drop the gimmicks but looking at his red carpet appearance, it will never happen.

    • hmmm.. February 23, 2015

      She going for the hollywood glamour look with the gloves not that you would have noticed because you spend half your time hating on artists that are not your fave

      • Please February 23, 2015

        She looks like the trashy version of glamour. The look on stage was tacky and naff as heck.

    • Paulo February 23, 2015

      why so salty? does it hurt to know your fav will never Tumblr-gif its way into these type of vocals? how come Llama wasn’t invited to perform? haaaa

  28. Stephy. February 23, 2015

    But, overall as an ARTIST. Madonna >>> Lady Gaga. Madonna expresses herself FAR better & re-invents herself way better. Also, her VISUALS/PRODUCTIONS (Smoke N Mirror’s) are the best from any POP star in HISTORY tbh… But, as a RAW talented performer/singer. Lady Gaga >>> Madonna.

    I’ve said it once & I’ll say it again…
    .
    MADONNA IS THE GREATEST SMOKE N MIRRORS ARTIST OF ALL TIME

    • Iggz Szn February 23, 2015

      Pop stars are usually not the most talented, it’s all about the image, the brand and the catchy tunes (See Rihanna, Katy Perry, Kesha). So I guess Madonna does qualify.

    • Iggz Szn February 23, 2015

      Hell even my fave Miss Iggy iggz

    • Please February 23, 2015

      Lady Gaga’s performances are generic.

  29. AkeysStan February 23, 2015

    Rita Ora who?

  30. Break Free With Grande February 23, 2015

    Cute but does not change the fat that she is a flop

  31. Bey-Minaj February 23, 2015

    Lol those vocals were pre recorded i caught her lip synching once or twice

  32. Navy Nick February 23, 2015

    She’s a true live singer!!

  33. Gee February 23, 2015

    Gaga did a stellar job.

    • * February 23, 2015

      Karaoke time. How many songs has she covered now ? lol

  34. FutureCIARA February 23, 2015

    Glad Gaga got a chance to showcase the purity of her voice! Beautiful!

  35. coolness February 23, 2015

    Okay Stefani, I see you! I always knew there was a truly talented vocalist beneath the outlandish outfits and pop star persona. I’m not a fan by any stretch but I give credit where it’s due. Gaga absolutely did that! As for the Madonna comparisons, well Madge is The Queen of Pop with the legendary catalog to match and can be given credit for pretty much creating the modern day blueprint for nearly all female pop stars (Gaga included). However, like many on here have pointed out, her actual raw talent has often been questioned but that takes nothing away from her legacy as a pioneer.

    • * February 23, 2015

      Madonna has a far more better catalogue. I guess that’s why ‘Lady Gaga’ raided through it.

      And still could only manage to write s*** songs like ‘ Born This Way ‘ and ‘ Bla Bla ‘

      • coolness February 23, 2015

        Did I not say that in my post? I have no dog in this Madonna vs Gaga fight. I’m just here to give my two cents and comment. Keep it moving.

  36. Tyler February 23, 2015

    Not a fan but I respect Gaga has an entertainer. She’s an exceptional vocalist.

    • FART RAVE February 23, 2015

      She is a pretty bad entertainer. Singing one song does not show the broad scope of talent.

  37. Danny Bey February 23, 2015

    I was never a fan of Gaga bc she annoyed me. I always knew she could sing but she tried too damn hard with all the extra circus s***. Now I’m so glad she’s ditching all of that and letting her talent just speak for itself. She is immensely talented and I hope this new era/album will reflect that bc Im so much more of a fan of artists that let their talent speak for themselves rather than gimics. The Grammys, Stevie Wonder tribute, and now the Oscars. That is the Gaga I love. Slay us with these vocals girl. Keep it it up Stefanie!

  38. sam February 23, 2015

    That was a fantastic performance, But she has gone from imitating Madonna to Christina.

    • Paulo February 23, 2015

      Imitating Xtincta? on which part? Gaga’s voice didn’t crack nor did she scream out of tune in the end kiii

  39. Indie February 23, 2015

    FANTASTIC!!!!! 10/10

  40. Sandra February 23, 2015

    Lady GaGa is overrated. Why was she even at the Oscars? Always trying to get attention when in reality no one cares about her antics. Smh

  41. Sandra February 23, 2015

    GaGa is not a great vocalist, lol. She tries so hard to be percieved as ‘talented’ but I don’t buy it

  42. JOHNVIDAL February 23, 2015

    WOW Fantastic!
    I always say it and it´s just an obvious truth. She is the best young pop female by a mile. To find people who still try to fight it is just hilarious and pure hate.

    • Jewel February 23, 2015

      You can praise Gaga by not bringing others into it. Shes the best in YOUR opinion.

      • JOHNVIDAL February 23, 2015

        What did I say? I didn´t mention anyone else. Just that she is the best among the pop mainstream females under the age of 30. It´s obvious. She kills it everytime.

    • Skyfall February 23, 2015

      Who is that in your avi with Mariah ?

      • JOHNVIDAL February 23, 2015

        Lenny Kravitz. One of her great friends.

  43. Royalkev February 23, 2015

    That was a great! Fan/stan (or not so much), you really can’t shade anything about that performance!

  44. Avenger February 23, 2015

    Gaga’s performance stunk. She is the most bipolar, unorganized, uncharismatic, and utterly generic thing to hit the music scene in the last 20 years. The music doesn’t speak for itself, nor does the “talent”. She knows this too, which is why she had to gimmick her way to fame via meat dresses and gay pandering. Gaga is basically a narcissistic con artist. Now she’s trying to gimmick her way out of her gimmicks because they don’t work anyway. She’s a mess.

    • RANCOR February 23, 2015

      Basically.

    • JOHNVIDAL February 23, 2015

      LOL You are pressed hun. After this performance still with crap like that? No hun. She is being praised everywhere, even from people who don´t care about these performances, film critics and all. They were surprised and then some.

  45. King M.J February 23, 2015

    She did an amazing, I like Gaga.

    • King M.J February 23, 2015

      amazing job.

  46. Suicide Blonde February 23, 2015

    I think she’s very talented but so unoriginal, she’s a great singer but also very good at imitating voices, she gave an amazing performance but i didn’t heard Gaga, she was trying to sing iike Maria Callas and Judy Garland, it’s no the first time, she always does it, Whitney always sounded like her, Celine, Mariah and even Beyoncé too. Gaga doesn’t, another example of this is her live rendition of ‘Dope’, which was basically inspired by Madonna’s singing style in the Reinvention performance of ‘Lament’, i could go on and on but my point would be mistaken for hate. As for the comparisons between those two, Gaga is a better singer and pianist, Madonna is a better performer, guitarrist, songwritter and producer, both talented in their own way. Someone has a point here, i always use rock musicians to make a comparison between Madonna and good singers. John Lennon, Bruce Sprinsteen, Bob Dylan etc are amazing musicians but nobody’s vocalist, still they are musically superior than any diva, from Whitney to Mariah, Madonna belongs to this category, her artistry leaves all these vocalists in the dust, althought Gaga is more than just a good voice, Madonna is light years ahead of her whdn it comes to know what good music is. Btw i can’t at @Royalkev saying that True Blue is better than Ray of Light, TB is a bubblegum pop album, one of her worst albums musically speaking, ROL is one of the best albums in the history of music, sure Live to Tell is one of her best ballads but is not the whole album.

      Agreed!!! Ray of light is one of the best albums of all time. Madonna was the first to make William orbit mainstream and what they did with that album was incredible.

    Gaga was AMAZING. You can tell she was amazing just by all the haters in here and the madonna fans all up in their feelings over it. Madonna has NEVER and WILL never have the range of talent that Gaga has. Madonna’s only “talent” is shock gimmicks and media manipulation. Lady Gaga has used shock and gimmicks too, but she has also taken moments to display her raw natural talent outside of the gimmicks. Madonna hasn’t done that and will never do that because she has no raw natural talent. She sold millions of records, sure, but that’s only because she was spitting them out assembly line style, one sometimes 2 every year since her debut, not because she was this amazing talent. Since Gaga arrived on the scene, madonna and her sheep herd of fans have done nothing but confirm their insecurities over Gaga and how much she is threatened by her. If Gaga didn’t threaten madonna’s entire existence and ego, and her fans’ blind worship of her, they wouldn’t give Gaga a second glance.

    That was wack. Gaga is wack. The has passed.

    • MovieAmi February 23, 2015

      * The fad has passed.

      What “super star” is already flopping by their third album? Gaga was just a fad.

    Beautiful performance Gaga!

  51. Vandrea February 23, 2015

    Gaga bores me silly. When she’s being abstract and OTT, she’s boring. When she’s trying hard to tone herself done, she’s still boring. Where’s GooGoo when you need him?

  52. RANCOR February 23, 2015

    Show tunes now? The desperation continues. At this point she’s basically grabbing at anything as she falls off the cliff down into the valley of washed up pop star. This has-been-in-training-wheels needs to go get thrown up on again. It won’t compel anyone to buy CHARTFLOP, but it won’t be as sad as this desperate attempt to reinvent herself.

    • Florida Evans February 23, 2015

      Gaga was invited to perform at the Academy Awards–INVITED. This performance has nothing to do with an attempt to sell ARTPOP. This performance simply confirms what people with ears already knew: that she’s better than most of her contemporaries.

      Julie Andrews praised this performance. Do you think your ridiculous opinion of Gaga trumps icon Julie Andrews’ ? You know the answer to that.

      Brilliant performance Lady Gaga!!!

  53. Biting Truth February 23, 2015

    Gags is over. Karma got her good. The only thing left for her to do is go play Vegas with Mariah.

  54. DD1G February 23, 2015

    Didn’t watch the performance and don’t care how it went. All I know is that I hate her guts. Words can’t even express how much I loathe T***** Wawa.

  55. Meteorite February 24, 2015

    I know I am late to this topic, although I felt Gaga did a remarkable job, I can’t help but wonder why wasn’t Christina asked to do the tribute? If anyone has followed her career will know that in majority of her interviews she has praised Etta James and Julie Andrews/Sound of Music as bring her saviors. I know some will argue that she may over sing it but that’s subjective. I wish people would stop acting like she over sings ever song, she has her refined moments. And I honestly believe that with the SOM being so close to her heart, she would have done majestically.

    • Sam February 24, 2015

      Agreed Christina would have been a perfect choice for this performance.

    Can someone tell me why everyone is comparing Gaga to Madonna?
    Or Xtina or Bey, for f*** sake, Gaga is her OWN artist.
    Yes she has streaks of Madonna in her, but Madonna ripped off plenty of people back in her time i.e. Marilyn Monroe, Ken Russel, the staple singers etc.
    So for Madonna to call Gaga a fraud is actually just downright hypocritical.
    Pop music is just recycled old stuff. Once people get that through their thick skulls there won’t be any of this nonsense. Also, back in Madonna’s day there was no social media, so even if people wanted to call Madonna out on her rip-offs, they didn’t have the means to. So it’s quite unfair to be honest and Madge is just taking advantage.
    I think what it comes down to is that Madge is jealous of Gaga. Gaga has a beautiful, soaring voice, confirmed by this article, AND she plays the piano professionally.
    Madonna has never been famous for her voice. It was more an image thing for her. And now she’s losing that image, she’s doing everything she can to stay in the game which actually just makes her look desperate.
    Sorry Madonna. Gaga is stealing your crown.
