OCONTO FALLS, Wisconsin, U.S.A. – Pop star Lady Gaga performed a stunning tribute to The Sound of Music and its star Julie Andrews at the 2015 Oscars.
Sans meat dress – her infamous costume at a 2010 music awards ceremony – Gaga opted instead for an elegant, flowing white gown.
Although she was without her antics, Gaga’s performance Sunday night was memorable in its own right – and as it should be. This year marks the classic, Oscar-winning film’s 50th anniversary.
Accompanied by several violinists, she skillfully belted out a medley of the musical’s most famous hits: “The Sound of Music,” “My Favorite Things,” “Edelweiss,” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain.”
After such a dazzling performance, the star-studded audience gave Gaga a well-deserved standing ovation.
Andrews herself then came onstage to hug and congratulate Gaga.
“Dear Lady Gaga, thank you for that wonderful tribute,” Andrews gushed. “It really warmed my heart.”
