We’re diving into an ocean of “Shallow” covers, which Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper originally performed for their 2018 film A Star Is Born. Since then, more star-studded versions of the Oscar-winning song have been born. But which tops the rest?
Kelly Clarkson joked, “I don’t have a Bradley Cooper here, so I’m just holdin’ it down,” before diving right into the ballad by herself during her Meaning of Life Tour in February 2019. Garth Brooks, who performed a country-tinged rendition of “Shallow” with his wife Trisha Yearwood during #GarthRequestLive in March 2020, made sure Clarkson didn’t have to hold it down solo again when they linked up for a Kelly Clarkson Show performance of the song in December.
Lizzo held it down on her own with her good-as-hell vocals during her performance on SiriusXM Hits1 in April 2019. Meanwhile, Nick Jonas‘ smoky voice wafted throughout his acoustic video snippet he posted on social media in February 2019 “in honor of Oscar weekend,” when “Shallow” took home the Academy Award for best original song.
