Home Celebrity Oscars: Lady Gaga Gets Standing Ovation, Wows Crowd, Transitions from Yoke to...

The Tony Bennett effect is now fully developed. Lady Gaga completely wowed the Oscar audience last night with her “Sound of Music” medley. No more egg costumes, or meat dresses. She sang like a dream. Watch this clip. She got a standing ovation. Something really big is on the horizon for Stefani Germanotta. Someone please get her with an orchestra and a really great producer. Calling Richard Perry, Tommy LiPuma, Quincy Jones.

  1. I think you’re wrong about Lady Gaga. She should keep doing what she’s doing and then once in a while, like with Tony Bennett and the Oscars, tease us with her versatility and angelic voice. I don’t think she can outdo her current popularity and $$$ by singing jazz and standards, though I love it and she is one of the greats.
