At the Oscars last night, Lady Gaga won the Best Song Award for her songwriting contribution in the film A Star is Born, which she also stared in. The singer, actress and all around icon recently received a Grammy, BAFTA and Golden Globe, making her the first person to do so in a year. While delivering her acceptance speech, Gaga made sure to thank her co-star Bradley Cooper for casting her in his first directed film. "Bradley, there is not a single person on the planet that could have sung this song with me but you. Thank you for believing in us," she said.

This may have been a precursor of what was to come next. And there was so much more to come for audiences, both there and at home. Lady Gaga, who was wearing a black Alexander McQueen dress, a Tiffany and Co 128.54 carat diamond necklace (that was previously worn by Audrey Hepburn), and Bradley Cooper were to make yet another historic moment. As they both walked up to the stage, almost casually, were they aware that they were going to give people the most intense Oscar performance of their lives?

Either way- they did. It was impossible to look away as Bradley Cooper glued himself to Lady Gaga on the piano, even if it did feel slightly creepy to be watching. There were a few moments that we definitely thought they were going to kiss, or run away and get married during Shallow. Obviously, while wondering what Irina Shayk was thinking. Twitter exploded with comments about the palpable chemistry between the two, as well as their spray tans. But honestly, who cares if Gaga was a closer shade to tangerine than usual? She won an Oscar and gave us that performance.
