Bradley Cooper spent months training his voice before he sang in “A Star is Born.” But when he sings “Shallow” on the Oscars on February 24, he intends to use his own natural voice, rather than the deeper one he adopted to play Jackson Maine. To get an idea of what that is going to sound like, watch him perform this Oscar-nominated song with his “ASIB” co-star Lady Gaga in Las Vegas last month.
Cooper and Lady Gaga won the Grammy for Best Pop/Duo Group Performance for this chart-topping single on Feb. 10. While she attended the ceremony, he opted to jet to London for the BAFTA Awards that same night. He was rewarded for his efforts as he shared in the win for Best Score.
While Cooper has been onstage at the Dolby Theater to present, he has never sang at the Academy Awards. Gaga has taken her turn in the spotlight with two performances, having sang a medley from “The Sound of Music” in 2015 and her nominated song “Til It Happens to You” the following year.
It looks like Lady Gaga will lose the Best Actress race at the Oscars to Glenn Close (“The Wife”). But she is all but sure to win the Best Original Song award for penning “Shallow,” which is at the heart of the film. That might well be the only win for the film that night. What do you think?
