The queen of pop delivered at the Oscars a surprise performance of her ballad “Hold My Hand”, featured on the soundtrack of the iconic ‘Top Gun: Maverick’.
The song has been described as the emotional core of the film and a love letter to aviation. Composer Lorne Balfe and Tom Cruise have given the song their thumbs up, calling it the perfect score for the movie.
Gaga had previously revealed that she had composed the song for ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ in early 2022, and had collaborated on the track with the talented composer, Hans Zimmer. Although she struggled to find the perfect composition for the movie’s soundtrack, Gaga finally hit the jackpot with her poignant ballad. The singer has also dropped a music video for the song, where she plays a fighter pilot, wearing aviator shades and a bomber jacket, just like Tom Cruise.
This pop star never ceases to amaze her fans, and her latest performance at the Oscars was no exception. Despite the rumors that she would not be attending the awards ceremony, Gaga took the stage by storm with her soulful, stripped-down performance of ‘Hold My Hand’. The artist ditched her flashy outfits and went for a minimalist, streetwear-inspired look instead. With her hair styled in a simple French braid and her makeup-free face, Gaga proved once again that she knows how to captivate her audience with her artistry, not just with her looks.
The Oscars are not a new stage for Lady Gaga, who has already won a statuette for Best Original Song in 2019. This year, the songstress is set to perform her hit song ‘Hold My Hand’ at the ceremony, making all of the best original song nominees performing at the evening. Her performance left us all spellbound, proving again that she is a powerhouse performer!
The songstress’s talent and dedication to her craft are undeniable, as she continues to dominate the music industry and captivate audiences worldwide.
