Happy birthday, Lady Gaga! The singer and actress turned 30 on March 28 and in celebration of her big day, we’re taking a look back on Gaga’s EPIC year. Join us in reliving all of her greatest moments — and let’s be honest, there were MANY!
Lady Gaga had an EXPLOSIVE past 365 days! From working on her upcoming fifth studio album, to singing the National Anthem at Super Bowl 50, performing a high-tech David Bowie tribute at the Grammys, and delivering an emotional rendition of her ballad “Til It Happens to You” at the Oscars, the singer/actress seemed to do it all last year! Celebrate her birthday with us and take a look at all that’s happened in her 29th year!
This was a big year for Lady Gaga’s career as she made the challenging jump from singer to actress. For American Horror Story: Hotel, the star underwent a massive transformation to play The Countess, and she completely wowed audiences with her killer performance! In fact, the singer did SUCH an incredible job that she even won her very first Golden Globe. Geez, is there anything Gaga CAN’T do? Better yet, it’s already been confirmed that she will be appearing in the next season of American Horror Story as well!
Next up for Gaga was snagging the coveted job of singing The National Anthem at Super Bowl 50 in February. In an epic red, sparkly suit, the petite blonde blew America away with her insane vocal range and classically trained voice. Now THAT’S how you start a show! Some even said it was one of Gaga’s best performances EVER!
Sporting yet another wild ensemble, Lady Gaga took on the honor of performing a memorable tribute to the late David Bowie at the Grammys in February. Gaga’s celebration of his legacy included Bowie-inspired fashion, an epic light show full of holographic makeup, and most of all — her incredible voice. Once again, the singer didn’t fail to leave her audience speechless — in the best way possible of course!
While Gaga made an appearance at all the major award shows this past season, perhaps her most moving performance of all was her Oscars song, “Till It Happens to You.” She flawlessly delivered an incredibly emotional rendition of her nominated song, even receiving a standing ovation afterwards. It was by far the most touching moment of the entire night.
There’s no question that Lady Gaga completely SLAYED this past year. The superstar actually seemed to be on top of the world, and only at age 29 at that. We can only imagine what 30 will bring for her — we can’t wait to see!
