Here are the 25 performances that made it onto my list . . .

Trailer: A Star Is Born (2018)

Surely this is becoming one of the most remade films? Although I have only seen the 1954 version with Judy Garland which I totally love! Therefore I am very much looking forward to seeing a more modern take on the film, Bradley Cooper is also directing as well as starring opposite Lady Gaga. From this first trailer it really does look like it’s going to be a special film with a great soundtrack!

Due for release in the UK on the 8th October, could well be an early Oscar contender?

Grammy Awards 2010 – Lady GaGa

The 2010 Grammy Awards took place last night so I have spent some time this morning searching YouTube to see clips of some of the performances. Lady GaGa really blew everyone away with a compilation of some of her songs from the previous year. “Poker Face” “Bad Romance” and my favorite “Speechless” which involved Sir Elton John in a duet and they changed to “Your Song” in the middle then went back to singing Speechless. It really was just incredible she seems to get better each time you see her perform.

Other performances which I loved were my favorites Bon Jovi 🙂 who sung three songs including classic hit “Livin’ On A Prayer” which was voted for by the public for them to sing. Pink was brilliant singing “Glitter in the Air” and Taylor Swift done an incredible performance of Love Story and You Belong With Me.

I could not yet find the Michael Jackson tribute but hopefully will be able to watch that very soon.

Lady GaGa – Speechless

I am sure I have made posts before when I have a song of the moment before, so here goes another one of those posts. I heard this song for the first time on Wednesday when the Royal Variety performance was on TV and pretty much downloaded it on Friday and have listened to it 25 times on iTunes already!!! Yes I did say it was a song of the moment.

I think its a totally different type of song to hear from Lady GaGa showing that she really is talented with music, while yes she is a little strange. But I think thats all part of her act, she does things differently. This shows in the performance at the Royal Variety.

I guess I can just really relate to this song at the moment with the lyrics they just really appeal to me, and somethings that have been going on at the moment.
