Grammy Awards 2016: Lady Gaga Honours David Bowie With Tribute Performance, Singing 'Heroes', 'Space Oddity' And 'Rebel Rebel'

Lady Gaga did an excellent job of paying tribute to one of her biggest inspirations, David Bowie, at the 2016 Grammy awards.

Last month, the world of entertainment was rocked by the news that David Bowie had died at the age of 69, following a private battle with cancer.

Gaga - who has repeatedly named Bowie as one of her biggest inspirations throughout her career - took to the stage on Monday night (15 February), to pay homage to the late singer.

Kicking off with a close-up of her face emblazoned with Bowie’s iconic ‘Aladdin Sane’ lightning bolt, Gaga began her performance by singing ‘Space Oddity’, before whizzing through a collection of his biggest hits, including ‘Changes’, ‘Ziggy Stardust’, ‘Suffragette City’ and ‘Rebel Rebel’.

Joined on stage by Nile Rodgers - who collaborated with David Bowie in the 1980s - she then launched into ‘Fashion’, ‘Fame’ and ‘Let’s Dance’, before wrapping things up with one of his signature tunes, ‘Heroes’.
