Lady Gaga will pay tribute to her idol David Bowie at the upcoming Grammys on February 15, the New York Times is reporting. The Grammys had been scrambling to find a way to pay their respects to the iconic Bowie, who passed away last month, and they found their solution in the chameleonic Gaga, who’d already been set to perform at the awards show. Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich said that several artists contacted him to participate in the Bowie tribute, but he decided to let Gaga handle the duties solo. Gaga will cover “three or four” Bowie tracks, says Erlich, in a “a true homage to who David was, particularly musically, but not ignoring his influence on fashion and pop culture in a broader way.”

(I’m sure many viewers were left scratching their heads when it was announced that Lady Gaga would perform “The Sound of Music” at last year’s Academy Awards, and she was surprising well-received. But this is Bowie.)
