Fresh off her Super Bowl appearance, Gaga attended yesterday’s Oscars nominees luncheon at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Oscars producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin took to the stage to share a few words. Hill gave a special shout out to Gaga for her performance of the national anthem at the Super Bowl. Hill, a producer of several past Super Bowls, called Gaga’s performance “the best rendition I have ever heard, and, trust me, I’ve heard a lot.”
Gaga’s jaw dropped in shock by the unexpected praise and was left in tears.
Gaga aced the first of three big performances she has lined up this month. She is set to honor Bowie in a 7 minute tribute at the Grammy’s on February 15th. After that, she will go on to perform at this year’s Oscars on the 28th.
