Mark Ronson--who co-wrote and produced "Shallow"--made an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday and discussed Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s Oscars duet of their winning song “Shallow.”
Ronson shared that it was Bradley’s idea for him and Gaga to walk onto the stage from their front row seats in the Dolby Theatre audience at the start of the performance.
“I think he had a specific vision. I heard Lady Gaga talking about it, so I think it was his thing. That probably might be the only time they ever perform that song together so it made it feel really special.”
People Magazine claims that before they performed, Bradley whispered to Gaga "let's drop a little joy."
Mark added that Bradley was “brave” to go up and perform, since he’s not a professional singer.
“Shallow” won the Oscar for Best Original Song; the song’s four co-writers, including Gaga and Mark, all got statuettes but tongues are wagging wondering if there's anything more than a professional relationship between the two.
