Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper tickled the ivories and tugged at the heartstrings when they performed the hit song Shallow from their film A Star is Born at the 91st Academy Awards ceremony in Hollywood on Sunday. 

The pair walked onto the stage from their front row seats, with Cooper tapping into the raspy vocals he cultivated for the film while Gaga delivered her heart-thumping guttural wail.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper have been in a constant spotlight since their movie "A star is born" was released. The songs from the movie won various awards and have been trending on the charts for months. Bradley and Gaga took to the Oscars stage to perform one of their most popular songs.

The emotional performance saw the co-stars of the reimagined classic Hollywood tale finish sitting next to each other at the piano, faces nearly touching, exchanging intimate glances.

Moments later, a tearful Gaga won her first Oscar for Best Original Song for the runaway hit about seeking greater fulfillment from live and love.

"I've worked hard for a long time, and it's not about, you know, it's not about winning. But what it's about is not giving up. If you have a dream, fight for it," she told the audience.
