Watch Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper’s Hot And Heavy Performance Of “Shallow” At The Oscars

first_imgOn Sunday night, Hollywood celebrated its biggest night of the year at the 91st Annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles. The evening featured a number of notable storylines, from Spike Lee nabbing his first-ever Oscar for “Best Adapted Screenplay” (BlacKkKlansman) to Bohemian Rhapsody taking home four awards including a “Best Actor in a Leading Role” statue for Rami Malek‘s portrayal of Queen‘s embattled frontman, Freddie Mercury.However, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper‘s duet performance of “Shallow”, the hit song from their multiple Oscar-nominated film, A Star Is Born, was what set the Internet ablaze during the ceremony. In the film, the song serves as a significant plot point in the love story between Cooper and Gaga’s respective characters, a musical representation of new yet star-crossed love. It was clear from their Oscar performance that the chemistry between the two is still as strong as ever. The sexual and emotional tension was palpable—particularly when Cooper made his way to Gaga’s piano bench to help sing the song’s final refrain. They didn’t quite make out onstage, but they may as well have.Related: Lady Gaga And Bradley Cooper Perform “Shallow” During Surprise Live Debut In Las Vegas [Watch]Whether it was the song itself, the chemistry between the two performers, or some combination of the two, the powerful ballad made a strong impression on more than just the viewers in theaters and at home. “Shallow” wound up taking home “Best Original Song” honors later in the evening.

Numbers for February 2016 are still being tabulated.“I am extremely proud of the commonwealth agencies, local governments and community partners who have banded together to identify and provide homeless veterans with stable housing and access to the programs and services that will help them rebuild their lives,” said Governor Wolf. “While we exceeded our goal, we know that there are still many homeless veterans on our streets and we remain committed to reaching out to these brave men and women who served our country.”The commonwealth along with local officials, community housing and homeless service providers, federal agencies, and corporate and philanthropic organizations are committed to effectively ending veteran homelessness; this means having the programs and systems in place so that future homeless episodes will be rare, brief and non-recurring.“Over the past several months it’s been exciting to see that the city of Lancaster/Lancaster County, Philadelphia and Reading/Berks County have formally announced they have the systems in place to successfully meet the needs of homeless veterans in their areas,” said Gen. Carrelli. “It’s also been rewarding for the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs to coordinate and rally the efforts of all of the stakeholders in this effort and we will continue to advocate for Pennsylvania’s homeless veterans.”General Carrelli will be available for media interviews today following his testimony in front of the House Appropriations Committee at 11:00amThe challenge, officially known as the Mayors Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness, is an initiative of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that was launched in June 2014.
