Apparently everyone forgot Lady Gaga is a really, really talented singer?
Maybe it’s the wigs and the crazy outfits. Maybe it’s the meat dresses and the being carried in an egg and all that blood. Whatever it is, people seem to have forgotten that first and foremost Gaga is an insanely talented singer. But they remembered tonight.
Gaga’s secret performance at the Academy Awards turned out to be a tribute to The Sound of Music for its 50th anniversary. She took the stage for a very toned down medley of “The Sound of Music,” “My Favorite Things,” “Edelweiss” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain.”
And the flashiest part of her performance was some skirt swishing.
It’s safe to say everyone was impressed:

Afterwards, Gaga tweeted this:
You earned it. We’ll conclude with an obligatory: Yaaaaaas, Lady Gaga! Yas!
