Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga may have released their Oscar-nominated film A Star Is Born back in October, but the on-screen couple are still appearing everywhere together. Thanks to awards season, we’ve been seeing more of Jackson and Ally on the red carpet and sitting front row at the biggest nights in Hollywood, including the SAG Awards and the Golden Globes.
This past weekend the duo also reunited at Lady Gaga’s Las Vegas residency show Enigma, which included a surprise performance of “Shallow,” marking the first time the actors have performed the song live together. There could be 100 performances to choose from in Vegas, but this is the one we’d want to see live.
During Gaga’s Enigma show on Saturday night, Cooper was seated near the front and pulled on stage by Mother Monster to perform the pair’s Oscar-nominated song. Already having the planned surprised in place, Gaga handed Cooper inner ear monitors for the performance, with Cooper telling the crowd, “Jackson never used these.”
The actor and new director looked a bit uncomfortable onstage, an understandable reaction to performing a song for the first time in front of a sold-out crowd, but Cooper managed to channel his gravelled-voice character and deliver a touching performance of “Shallow.”
Gaga sounded amazing, but that goes without saying.
The pair reunited again on Sunday to attend the SAG Awards, where they were both nominated for their roles in A Star Is Born. Neither actor took home any hardware, but there’s still the Oscars, where ASIB has eight nominations, the BAFTAs, which includes seven nominations, and the Grammy Awards, which includes four nominations…then there’s the Emmy Awards in the fall. So yeah, we’ll still be seeing a lot of Jackson and Ally together.
