With gray hair, a flowing dress, and a British accent, Lady Gaga sang a medley of songs from The Sound of Music in honor of the film’s 50th anniversary.
Scarlett Johansson introduced Gaga, noting “there was no solution to Maria but to love her.” After entering a stage adorned with trees, Gaga began by belting “The Sound of Music,” and then segued, with some skirt swishing, into “My Favorite Things.” The medley concluded with “Edelweiss” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain.”
Then came the best moment: Julie Andrews walked on stage and embraced Gaga in a long hug. The words “Dear Lady Gaga” have never sounded so lovely.
Oscar producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan also produced NBC’s The Sound of Music Live! So here’s a question: Who did better? Lady Gaga or Carrie Underwood?
