Well Nile and Gaga enjoyed it...

When one fan told the Chic legend that he should say sorry for the show, he replied: “If u think I'm apologizing you're sorely mistaken. I loved every minute I spent playing the #DavidBowieReal Tribute.”

Another tweet explained: “We wanted to show the range of his music as best we could. Bowie's not one song or genre.”

To other fans, he wrote:

Nile also responded when asked for his thoughts on a tweet from Bowie’s son Duncan Jones, which appeared to suggest that he wasn’t impressed with the performance:

“Overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused.’ Damn it! What IS that word!?” Duncan had tweeted.

The word he’s looking for? Gaga, obviously.

Gaga’s tribute to Bowie didn’t end with the Grammys performance, as she’s also recently revealed a tattoo of the star, which stretches across her rib cage.
