Cooper walks Lady Gaga up on to the stage at the 2019 Academy Awards.
He starts to sing his part of their duet, “Shallow”, from they’re film “A Star Is Born”.
Then Lady Gaga starts to sing.
When she hits the second chorus…
Her voice as commanding as ever.
Was in the palm of her hand.
Bradley sits next to her,
daunting for anyone to do while Gaga has taken the reigns.
And joins her for the ending of the song.
It was one of those moments where, even watching live, I knew it would be remembered in Oscar history from then on.
