Pop star Lady Gaga is set to honour David Bowie with “an experiential tribute” at the Grammy Awards. Her performance will be overseen by Chic’s Nile Rodgers, the producer of Bowie’s hit album Let’s Dance in 1983.
In a statement, the Recording Academy said: "The tribute will be a multisensory testament to the icon's incredible artistry and a reflection of his limitless creativity,"
Meanwhile, Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the Grammys, has confirmed Lady Gaga’s performance at the award show. She said: "We had already booked Lady Gaga on this year's show, but when David passed - almost in a single moment - we knew we had to change direction.”
"We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honour David. She's perfect for it."
The Grammys will be on 15 February and it will be held in Los Angeles. Lady Gaga is nominated for best song written for visual media.
Other artists that are set to perform include Adele, Kendrick Lamar, James Bay, Ellie Goulding and Carrie Underwood.
