Gaga took to the stage during Monday night’s (15 February) ceremony, paying her respects to her one of her musical heroes by performing a string of his hits, including ‘Changes’, ‘Heroes’, ‘Let’s Dance’ and ‘Suffragette City’.
However, while she may have won critical acclaim from some quarters, Bowie’s son has been slightly less forthcoming with his praise.

Writing on his Twitter page, Duncan said: “‘Overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused.’ Damn it! What IS that word!?”
The word you’re looking for, Duncan, is ‘gaga’. Depending on which dictionary you’re looking in, that is…
Gaga was joined onstage by Nile Rodgers, who worked with Bowie on his ‘Let’s Dance’ album, during the performance.
She had also arrived at the event sporting an ensemble inspired by his Ziggy Stardust persona, complete with heavy make-up and a bright orange hairstyle.
In the lead-up to the Grammys, Gaga also unveiled a new tattoo on her ribcage, showing David Bowie as he appears on his iconic ‘Aladdin Sane’ album artwork, complete with a lightning bolt over his eye.
It has previously been confirmed that next week’s Brit Awards will also feature a tribute to Bowie, which reports have claimed will feature performances from British musicians including Adele, Noel Gallagher and Coldplay.
