Lady Gaga has been busy giving fans of her award-winning film, A Star Is Born, exactly what they want — more and more performances of the film’s power ballad “Shallow” featuring Bradley Cooper, with each one better than the last.
It all started when the official music video was released last September, following Gaga (as Ally) and Cooper’s (Jackson Maine) love story. Fans then captured Gaga’s heartfelt live performances at her Las Vegas’ Enigma show, at one of which she brought up Cooper for an impromptu duet. Finally, her most recent performance of the single saw the pop-star-turned-movie-star give a theatrical rendition of “Shallow” before taking home the best pop duo/group performance Grammy for the song.
