Lady Gaga Trained for 6 Months for Oscar Medley

Lady Gaga trained for 6 months for her five minutes on stage at the Oscars this week honoring the Sound of Music. Her voice sounded far away from the typical pop choruses she sings as she performed a medley of the classic tunes including "My Favorite Things," "Edelweiss" and "Climb Ev'ry Mountain."
As effortless as she sounded, the singer actually practiced every day for six months for the 50th anniversary tribute.
"I'm just very excited to be here and I really put my heart into this performance," Gaga herself told ET on the Oscars red carpet. "It's a tribute performance for a remarkable film that changed the history of cinema forever, and I'm just very honored to be doing it."
After the medley, Lady Gaga introduced Julie Andrews to the crowd just before bursting into tears. All that work had paid off!

I love it when pop stars can show that they can really sing. Lady Gaga is really talented, and I'm glad that she's been able to show that more and more!
Love when she's not in costumes. Lady Gaga really shined. Her dress and hair too!! <3
That was beyond gorgeous... The breath just left me. <3 <3 <3
I loved this so much my favorite musical of all time!
Gaga is the coolest. <3 She's one of the few pop stars I can think of that was actually classically trained.

Celebrity News Recipe: Lady Gaga's Dark & Spooky 'Mother Monstertini'
Lady Gaga has been having quite the week. Less than a year after the Daily Beast, among many other celebrity news outlets, ruled her career 'dead', she came back hard and with a serious vengeance. Last Sunday, she had the tongues of every skeptic-turned-fan wagging after her showstopping tribute of "The Sound of Music" - including the musical's original star, the legendary Julie Andrews! And just yesterday, the creators of the smash series "American Horror Story" announced Lady Gaga as their next leading actress after the exit of the show's award-winning star Jessica Lange. It's a good day to be Gaga. And as a faithful fan, I've decided to dedicate the very first 'Celeb of the Week' recipe to Mother Monster herself. Made with Blavod black vodka and the goth-chic plum color of blackberry brandy, you've got a martini that's as high-fashion meets macabre as Stefani Germanotta herself. Lady Gaga's Mother Monstertini Ingredients: 2 1/2 ounces Blavod black vodka 1/2 ounce blackberry brandy A plump blackberry, for garnish These sunglasses Directions: First, put on the sunglasses. If for whatever reason you don't own a pair of avant-garde and hardly practical sunglasses, just dig through your closet for something else, keeping in mind a 5:1 fashion-to-function ratio. Next, combine the vodka and brandy in a cocktail shaker full of ice. It doesn't even have to be a cocktail shaker. Gaga would probably use something weird like a Baphomet ritual urn, but if you don't have $100 to spend on black magic kitchen accessories, I guess a cocktail shaker would do. Shake well while counting to 15 seconds. Or don't count and just sing the chorus to "Born That Way". No one cares. Strain the drink into a well-chilled martini glass. You could also serve this on the rocks in an old-fashioned glass, which is basically like the Tony Bennett of bar accessories. Finally, garnish your drink with a dark juicy blackberry on the rim. For an extra 'horror story' effect, once you've put the blackberry on, move it in full circle around the brim of the glass to get some gross blackberry guts action going on. (Yeah, I know it sounds gross, but it's also freaking glamorous.) Enjoy while sitting on a piano bench or on the lap of a guy that sort of looks like Taylor Kinney.
