David Bowie will get the memorial tribute treatment from Lady Gaga on this year’s Grammy Awards. She’ll be accompanied by producer Nile Rodgers, who produced Bowie’s biggest album, “Let’s Dance.”
Executive producer Ken Ehrlich says in a statement: “We had already booked Lady Gaga on this year’s show, but when David passed — almost in a single moment — we knew we had to change direction. We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honor David. She’s perfect for it. So I reached out to Nile [Rodgers] and, before long, we were on our way to creating what we believe will not only make a great GRAMMY Moment, but one befitting of David.”
Ehrlich is right– Gaga is the best choice. Not only can she play and sing all the music like crazy, she has the outfits! Should be amazing. Grammys air on Monday, February 15th on CBS.
Next up: who will sing for Natalie Cole, Glenn Frey and Paul Kantner.
