Watch Lady Gaga's EPIC tribute to David Bowie right here!

It's no secret that Lady Gaga took the news about pop-legend David Bowie's death badly. And it wasn't long before the 'Telephone' singer announced that her Grammy performance would be dedicated to him. 

Bowie died unexpectedly earlier this year aged 69, just two days before he released his album, Blackstar.  

Gaga opened the performance dressed as Ziggy Stardust, complete with newly-dyed red hair, singing Space Oddity, and then broke into Changes, Ziggy Stardust, Suffragette City, Rebel Rebel, Fashion, Fame, Let's Dance and Heroes.

She received a standing ovation from the crowd at the end as she embraced Chic's Nile Rodgers, one of Bowie's producers who joined her for the performance.

Before the show, Gaga posted a tearful Instagram video showing her getting her Ziggy Stardust makeup done ready for her performance.


The world loves you David.

Earlier this week, the singer shared a photo with her Snapchat fans as she got a tattoo on her ribcage of David Bowie's face, saying that it was the "image that changed her life".
