“The hills are alive with the sound of Music,” belts out a lovely woman in a plain white dress. This is not Julie Andrews though, but someone else. The camera pans closer and focuses on the singer – no other than flamboyant queen of shocking performances herself, Lady Gaga.
In what may arguably be the best performance of her career ever, the 28 year-old “Poker Face” star dazzled the Oscars 2015 audience not with flashy outfits or eardrum-shattering music, but with a solemn rendition that stayed true to the original.
The songs that Lady Gaga sung in the medley include:
- The Hills Are Alive
- My Favorite Things
- Climb Every Mountain
Before her phenomenal rise in the world of pop music, Lady Gaga, or Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta in real life, held numerous theatrical performances, appearing in high school plays and studying at the New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts before dropping out to pursue a career in music.
