Bradley Cooper joined Lady Gaga on stage in Las Vegas on Saturday (January 26) to perform their A Star is Born duet "Shallow" live for the first time. The two embraced and he followed Gaga to the piano.
"Jackson never used these", Cooper, referencing his character Jackson Maine, told the crowd as he prepared to perform.
Cooper then said "Hello Vegas" before he started singing.
Clearly overcome with emotion, the "Poker Face" singer - who joined "Shallow" co-writer Mark Ronson in taking home a Golden Globe earlier this month - wiped away tears before taking her spot at her piano. In a video captured by an excited fan and published by Gaga Daily on YouTube, the film's director walked from backstage to hug the musician.More news: Mulvaney says Trump will use executive authority if Congress won't fund wall
